Clark Art Institute Curatorial Fellowships (Fall 2020/Spring 2021)

Fellowships are awarded every year to established and promising scholars with the aim of fostering a critical commitment to inquiry in the theory, history, and interpretation of art and visual culture. Scholars may propose topics that relate to the visual arts, their history, practice, theory, or interpretation. Any proposal that contributes to understanding the nature of artistic activity and the intellectual, social, and cultural worlds with which it is connected is welcome.

Subjects of investigation might come from any period, from prehistory to the present, and from anywhere in the world. Projects can be focused on works in any medium and can employ any methodological approach. Attention, however, will be given to proposals that promise to deepen, transform, or challenge those methods currently practiced within art history or that have the prospect of enhancing an understanding of the role of images in other disciplines in the humanities.

The Clark Art Institute Curatorial Fellowships are new month-long fellowships that allow curators, whether completing a catalogue essay or conceptualizing a future exhibition, to carry out research and participate fully in the intellectual and residential life of the Clark and its Research and Academic Program, but do so for periods of time more suitable to most museum professionals.

Applicants are required to complete an online application form. All materials must be submitted in English.
