[1] Publication Grants - Ecole des mordernités Book Collection
[2] Research Residency Grants - Ecole des modernités

The Institut Giacometti in Paris runs a research programme on the history of modern art: the École des Modernités. The aim of this programme is to support original projects in the study of the art of the modern period (1905-1960).

As part of this programme, the Institut Giacometti supports original research on the modern period through access to its research centre, research residencies and publishing support in the form of a collection of essays. One of the main themes of the programme is cosmopolitan modernity in Paris.

The École des Modernités' collection of monographs, jointly published with Fage Éditions, offers unpublished texts which are the results of recent research on little-known or yet-to-be-discovered artists or movements that contributed to the vitality of cosmopolitan Paris in the Modern period. It aims to support young art historians in their first significant publications while making the results of their research accessible to a wide audience.
