Granted to one fellow identifying to any extent with Greater Chinese and Sinophone cultures and identities, based in the regions or internationally, Asymmetry are offering a fully funded curatorial fellowship in collaboration with Whitechapel Gallery and Delfina Foundation. The fellowship will take place 3 April – 17 September 2023.
The opportunity is geared towards a mid-career curator to gain training, skills, and experience, while embedded in the curatorial workings of Whitechapel Gallery. The Fellowship will provide unique professional development opportunities related to exhibition organisation, registrar tasks, catalogue assistance, artist liaison support, general support to the exhibition department, project-based research, and public programming. Furthermore, the Fellow will have the opportunity to design a public-facing programme in conjunction with their specialisation during their placement. Additionally, Whitechapel Gallery will be responsible for delivering workshops with senior staff members across the organisation, facilitate introductions to other London-based art institutions, identify opportunities to attend conferences and/or seminars relevant to the Fellow’s work and organise a research trip for the Fellow.
Situated within Delfina Foundation’s renowned residency programme, the fellow will benefit from further professional development opportunities and mentoring, as well as peer-to-peer exchange with other practitioners in-residence alongside accommodation. In addition to the training at partner institutions, support is also offered in guidance, networking, PR, and media exposure throughout the fellowship.
All organisation and costs of pastoral and logistical elements of the Fellowship will be covered, including but not limited to per diems and accommodation, international flights to and from the UK, UK airport transfers, transportation within London, visa and immigration requirements, health care and insurance
coverage. The Fellow will be provided with renumeration equal to London Living Wage for the duration of the Fellowship.
