With the support of the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation, we’re pleased to announce this year’s open call for Hyperallergic’s Journalism Fellowship for Curators. Now in its fourth year, this fellowship has evolved to provide five curators $5,000 to support their research and writing, while inviting our readers into their process along the way.
As part of this fellowship last year, we worked closely with five curators who shared their research and process through insightful articles, online events, and a digital exhibition emailed directly to over 140,000 Hyperallergic subscribers. Projects covered topics as far-ranging as the Kiowa Tribe’s commissioned murals and the artists of the Chilean island of Chiloé. We’re excited to continue collaborating with enthusiastic curators researching topics of importance, while also helping to illuminate and demystify curatorial work.
Five fellows will each receive a $5,000 grant to work with our editorial team to develop and expand their research in order to contribute two articles to Hyperallergic, participate in a recorded online event, and produce an email exhibition that is accessible to a wide audience. We encourage curators to take an experimental approach in designing their email exhibitions, which we’ll share with over 175,000 Hyperallergic newsletter subscribers.
We hope to accept a wide range of fellows and plan to host one per month from November through March. We encourage those who can work independently and have a clear vision for their project to apply. Please indicate which months you would be available for this fellowship and which months are not possible with your schedule.
Both established and emerging curators at least two years out of college are welcome to apply. We ask that you be upfront about your limitations, what you plan to exhibit, and how the fellowship’s focus on sharing your project with a public audience will help you realize your goals. Proposals with concrete plans for exhibition will be given priority. Whether a well-known museum or grassroots art space, all exhibition venues will be considered equally.
