The Yale Center for British Art invites curators from museums in the UK
Awards are for a duration of four weeks, which may take place between July 1, 2017, and June 30, 2018
Deadline for applications is January 11, 2017
The Yale Center for British Art invites curators from museums in the UK to apply for short-term residential fellowships. Applications from curators at municipal and regional museums, and those with a demonstrated need for research funding, are especially encouraged. Applicants should be engaged in significant curatorial work in any field of British art.
The awards are intended to enable curators to make use of the resources and collections of the Center, and other Yale holdings where relevant, in order to advance research on their curatorial projects and collections. While in residence, visiting curators will be encouraged to interact with the scholarly community at the Center and at Yale to discuss their research and share information about the collections they oversee.
Projects are expected to pertain to the curatorial responsibilities of the applicant and may include research pertaining to: online resources and cataloging, collections interpretation and other writing projects, the development of exhibitions or collections displays and related publications, or collections development and object care. The Center's collections comprise major holdings in British paintings, sculpture, and works on paper, as well as rare books, manuscripts, and a wide range of primary and secondary materials relating to all areas of the field. The Center's collections are accessible online (www.britishart.yale.edu/collections).
Awards are for a duration of four weeks, which may take place between July 1, 2017, and June 30, 2018. Accommodation, travel to and from New Haven, and a living allowance are provided.
Applicants should include a CV (no more than two pages) and an outline of the project (no more than three pages), providing an indication of the resources to be consulted at the Center and anticipated outcomes. Two letters of recommendation, one of which should indicate the support of the applicant's institution, should be forwarded under separate cover. Applications and references should be sent electronically to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please include "Curatorial Awards" in the subject line. Questions may be directed to: Martina Droth, Deputy Director of Research and Curator of Sculpture, Yale Center for British Art email@example.com
