Applications now open for Frieze x Deutsche Bank Emerging Curators Fellowship 2021

UK-based Black and POC emerging curators are invited to apply for a paid 18 month placement at Chisenhale Gallery

in Collaborations | 11 FEB 21

Launched during Frieze Week 2020, the Frieze x Deutsche Bank Emerging Curators Fellowship is open to individuals who identify as Black and POC.

Applications for the inaugural fellowship at Chisenhale Gallery, London are now open and will remain so until the deadline on March 1st. Please see here for full details on how to apply.

As part of the programme the participant will develop their expertise in the areas of exhibition planning and delivery, fundraising and public programming. The aim is to learn the foundational skills required to progress as a curator working with artists, archives and audiences. The fellow will also have access to mentoring sessions from Frieze and Deutsche Bank experts throughout the 18-month placement.

Funds for the fellowship were raised through the purchase of bespoke face masks designed by Idris Khan and an edition by John Akomfrah.

We are delighted that we reached our fundraising target for a second fellowship to take place at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, in Gateshead and applications will open at a later date.

A third partner gallery will be announced soon and you can continue to support the initiative below:
