Opportunity: Hall Curatorial Fellowship

Posted by Michelle Kasprzak • Wednesday, December 12. 2007
The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is pleased to announce a call for entries for the Hall Curatorial Fellowship, an eighteen-month fellowship for an international curator. The Hall Fellow is responsible for curating an original exhibition in keeping with The Aldrich's mission of leadership in the exhibition of significant and challenging contemporary art with an emphasis on emerging and mid-career artists. The Museum is located in Ridgefield, Connecticut, 50 miles outside New York City. The Hall Fellow will be chosen by an independent jury of distinguished art world professionals, including Carlos Basualdo of the Philadelphia Museum of Art; Bonnie Clearwater of the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami; and Sir Norman Rosenthal of the Royal Academy, London.

The Fellow will work with The Aldrich's curatorial team to develop his/her exhibition, oversee its installation, and collaborate with Museum staff to develop programming and an exhibition catalogue. To be eligible for the Hall Curatorial Fellowship, an applicant must be an art professional with a focus on contemporary art, and a citizen of a country other than the United States of America. The applicant must currently live and work in a country other than the United States, be proficient in English, have prior experience as a curator or co-curator of at least three professional exhibitions of contemporary art, and be able to travel to the United States.

The Hall Fellow will receive a stipend of $25,000 USD over the eighteen-month period of the Fellowship, from June 1, 2008, to December 31, 2009. The exhibition will be on view at The Aldrich from September 2009 through February 2010. Applications for the Hall Curatorial Fellowship are due at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum no later than February 15, 2008. Selected applicants will be invited for interviews at The Aldrich during March and April 2008. For full information and complete application materials, please visit the Aldrich website.

The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is grateful for the generosity of the Andrew J. and Christine C. Hall Foundation, which endowed the Hall Curatorial Fellowship.
