Opportunity: Curating.info FellowshipPosted by Michelle Kasprzak • Monday, September 19. 2011 • Category: Jobs & Opportunities
The application date for this opportunity has passed.
Curating.info is pleased to announce a new curatorial fellowship in collaboration with the Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA) in Glasgow. Commencing in 2012, the Curating.info Fellowship is a paid opportunity for an individual to conduct curatorial research and produce an exhibition at the CCA.
In response to the need for paid hands-on experience in curating, Curating.info Founder and Editor-in-Chief Michelle Kasprzak designed the Curating.info Fellowship as a way to facilitate this essential experience. The inaugural Fellowship will take place in partnership with Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA) Glasgow, a dynamic organisation in one of Europe’s most culturally-vibrant cities. The Fellowship is funded partly by CCA, and partly by the Curating.info community itself through a crowdfunding campaign. Please donate to the campaign here: http://rockethub.com/projects/2505-curating-info-fellowship.
The Fellow will work at the CCA in Glasgow, Scotland four days per week over the six month fellowship, working on a curatorial project or body of curatorial research. Fellows will be paid a flat fee of £8,000. Ideal candidates for the Fellowship are emerging or mid-career curators who can demonstrate passion and fresh thinking in curating and writing about contemporary art, and who have a vision for what the role of the curator means today.
The deadline for applications is October 21, 2011. Applicants will be notified November 15, 2011. Applications will be judged by Francis McKee, Director of the Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow; Sally Tallant, Head of Programmes, Serpentine Gallery / incoming Artistic Director & CEO, Liverpool Biennial; and Michelle Kasprzak, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Curating.info.
