Margaret R. Mainwaring Curatorial Fellowship
The Philadelphia Museum of Art seeks to fill the Margaret R. Mainwaring Curatorial Fellowship in the department of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs starting in fall 2021. This is a one-year fellowship with the possibility of renewal for a second year. The Fellow will work independently and collaboratively with staff to gain in-depth curatorial training in the graphic arts and to support scholarly research on the collection. In consultation with the supervising curator, the Fellow will be fully integrated into the department and devote time to both general curatorial work and special projects, including research on new acquisitions and the collections, preparing conditions reports, and organizing gallery rotations and collections-based workshops. The Fellow will have an opportunity to develop an exhibition or other project from the museum’s permanent collection. The ideal candidate will also be able to contribute to ongoing department efforts to expand the geographic, thematic, and public horizons of its research, exhibition, and programming.
