"Call for Curators: The Aldrich Announces the Inaugural Hall Curatorial Fellowship 2006 - 07"
2005-10-10 until 2006-02-01
Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art
Ridgefield, CT, USA

The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is pleased to announce the inception of the biannual Hall Curatorial Fellowship, an eighteen-month curatorial fellowship for international curators who wish to gain curatorial experience and professional development in an American museum setting. The Hall Fellow will be responsible for curating an original exhibition in keeping with The Aldrich's mission of leadership in the exhibition of significant and challenging contemporary art with an emphasis on emerging and mid-career artists. The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is located in Ridgefield, Connecticut, 50 miles outside New York City.

Chosen by The Aldrich and an independent jury of distinguished art world professionals, The Hall Fellow will work closely with the curatorial department of the Museum. She/he will work together with The Aldrich's curatorial director to develop the exhibition, organize its practical details, and oversee its installation. She/he will collaborate with the Museum's education, program, and publications staff to develop appropriate complementary cultural and educational programming and ancilary brochures, and to develop an exhibition catalogue to be published by The Aldrich.

To be eligible for the Hall Curatorial Fellowship, an applicant must be an art professional with a focus on contemporary art, and a citizen of a country other than the United States of America. The applicant must be proficient in English, have prior experience as a curator or co-curator of at least three professional exhibitions of contemporary art, and be able to travel to the United States of America.

Only candidates who are resident outside the United States are eligible to apply. The Hall Fellow will receive a stipend of $25,000 over an eighteen-month period and a travel allowance of up to $6,000. The initial fellowship period will commence on June 1, 2006, through December 31, 2007, and the exhibition will be on view from October 2007 through March 2008. The Hall Fellow will be expected to travel to and stay at The Aldrich for an appropriate amount of time to successfully develop and implement his/her project; however, the Fellowship is not a full-time residency.
