CURATORIAL FELLOWSHIP 2023
Whitechapel Gallery, London
THE APPLICATION IS NOW CLOSED
We are thrilled to announce our international Open Call for the upcoming Asymmetry Curatorial Fellowship at Whitechapel Gallery, London. The Curatorial Fellowship is a six-month placement for a mid-career curator to work with Whitechapel Gallery’s Exhibitions and Education departments, beginning in Early April 2023.
ABOUT THE CURATORIAL FELLOWSHIP
The fully funded Curatorial Fellowship in collaboration with Whitechapel Gallery and Delfina Foundation will be awarded to one Fellow identifying to any extent with Greater Chinese and Sinophone cultures and identities, based in the regions or internationally.
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. The Fellow will be awarded a formal certificate of achievement upon successful completion by Whitechapel Gallery.
Situated within Delfina Foundation’s renowned residency programme, the Fellow will also benefit from further professional development opportunities, mentoring as well as peer-to-peer exchange with other practitioners in-residence alongside accommodation.
In addition to the training at our partner institutions, Asymmetry will offer its HQ as a communal space to hot-desk, carry out individual research, and to host public-facing programming, as well as support in networking, PR, and media exposure throughout the Fellowship.
