Independent Curators International > Curatorial Research Fellowships (Online)

fr / es

Applications are now being accepted for two Curatorial Research Fellowships made possible by the Marian Goodman Gallery Initiative in honour of the late Okwui Enwezor.

ICI’s Curatorial Research Fellowships focus on promoting experimentation, collaboration, and international engagement in the field. They support early-to-mid career curators to advance their practice and develop new knowledge in contemporary art, through research, travel, and the development of professional networks.

Conceived to foster independent research, ICI’s Curatorial Research Fellowships offer a framework tailored to each curator’s field of critical inquiry. The fellows will receive financial support, mentorship specific to their research interests, and whenever possible, the opportunity to travel. They will have access to ICI’s international networks of collaborators and programmes to create opportunities for continued learning.

Fellowship duration is four to six months, between May and December 2021. Fellows may be based anywhere and will receive regular mentorship sessions virtually. Each fellow will receive an award of $10,000.

As part of the Marian Goodman Gallery Initiative in honour of the late Okwui Enwezor, these fellowships are available exclusively to BIPOC curators based in the US and curators of African descent based anywhere in the world. Early-to-mid-career curators (5+ years of experience working with contemporary artists), independent or with institutional affiliations, may apply.

Deadline: 16 April 2021
