Curatorial & Research Fellowships. Deadline: Oct. 15, 2018

SPECIAL CLARK FELLOWSHIPS

The Clark Art Institute’s Research and Academic Program (RAP) awards funded residential fellowships to national and international scholars, critics, and curators of exceptional promise and accomplishment. Proposed research projects should display a critical commitment to innovative inquiry in the history, theory, and interpretation of art and visual culture.
In addition to the semester-long Clark fellowships, RAP offers a number of special fellowships for specific research interests.

These include:
Short-term Curatorial Fellowships
Available in September, October, and November, these new month-long fellowships are designed for curators, offering a period of time that is more suited for museum professionals. The fellowship provides the opportunity to carry out research while participating in the intellectual and residential life of the Clark and RAP.

Center for Spain in America Fellowship
This one-semester fellowship is intended to support the study of all aspects of Spanish art from the early medieval period to the beginning of the twentieth century, as well as the worldwide impact of Spanish art and artists.

Mellon Network Fellowship
This fellowship supports a Clark residency of one semester for a scholar involved in a project addressing communication and technology—of all eras—across the visual humanities. The award also supports critical thinking about the changing states of media in art-historical research today.

All Clark fellows are provided offices in the open-stack, 280,000-volume art history library of the Manton Research Center; apartments in the gracious residence across the street from our 140-acre campus; reimbursement of travel expenses; and a stipend.

Applications are due by October 15, 2018

For more information and application details, please visit clarkart.edu/rap/fellowship

The Curatorial School Workshops, Malta. Deadline: June 30, 2017

This seems like an interesting program … even if the teaser image only shows utterly bored people (the lady in the background just fell asleep, didn’t she?)   😉

Anyways: There are student discounts and volunteering opportunities. So have a look!

The Valletta 2018 Curatorial School (28th August-1st September 2017) is a one-week intensive lecture programme hosted in the heart of Valletta, Malta, with leading curators from major international arts institutions. The theme for this year’s Curatorial School is Researching Curatorial Practices. By bringing together international and local perspectives, this year’s programme asks: What kinds of research do curators of contemporary art engage in?

The Curatorial School’s programme will explore a variety of topics that are highly relevant to practitioners and students today, including curating as research and curatorial research methods, curating the unfamiliar, the research involved in developing concepts, the temporalities of display, and the potentials and limitations of exhibition-making.

The Curatorial School offers participants the opportunity to further their curatorial career development through insightful lectures and professional networking opportunities. Participants may respond to tasks put forward by guest curators and receive extensive feedback on aspects of curating, researching, producing and presenting new ideas. Workshop themes include, “Curatorial Start Kit for Research the Art and Democracy Question,” “Modes of Curating / Curating as Research,” “Curating the Place and the Social” Art as Production of Public Domain,” and “Showtime: Exhibition Temporalities and Curating as a Mode of Political Enquiry and Critical Practice.”

International guest speakers and workshop facilitators include Alfredo Cramerotti (MOSTYN Gallery, 57th Venice Biennale, Manifesta 8), Bassam El Baroni (Manifesta 8, HOME WORKS 7), Fulya Erdemci (54th Istanbul Biennial, 54th Venice Biennale, 2nd Moscow Contemporary Art Biennale, 25th Biennale São Paulo), Maren Richter (REGIONALE12 Biennal, MOCA Taipei), Mick Wilson (Moscow Curatorial School, 9th Taipei Biennal, PARSE journal) and Sebastian Cichocki (Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, 52nd and 54th Venice Biennales).

To register: https://goo.gl/forms/s5OCQJwJEPhBM5am1

The fee to attend the Curatorial School is €110. We are pleased to offer a discounted student rate of €60 for students currently enrolled in studies.

A limited number of applicants will be accepted as event volunteers, for whom attendance fees will also be waived.

 

Registrations are open until the 30th of June 2017.
