BALTIC to Partner with the Frieze x Deutsche Bank Emerging Curators Fellowship

The acclaimed Gateshead-based institution will benefit from the initiative, aimed to increase diversity in the visual arts, following the successful funding of an 18-month placement at London's Chisenhale Gallery

in Collaborations | 03 DEC 20

Following the successful launch of our fundraising initiatives – the sale of 1,500 bespoke face masks designed by Idris Khan and an edition by John Akomfrah – we are delighted to have reached our initial fundraising target for the inaugural Frieze x Deutsche Bank Emerging Curators Fellowship placement at Chisenhale Gallery, within a month of launching. This new initiative is intended to increase diversity in the visual arts by supporting entry-level positions for Black and POC curators who are UK-based. 

The inaugural fellowship was presented in partnership with Chisenhale Gallery, London, where the inaugural fellow will be based for 18 months on a paid placement. The fellowship will open to applications from January 2021. 

New Partner: BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead.
We are also now pleased to share details of our second fellowship placement, which will be made in partnership with BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead. Their mission to create greater understanding of the world through outstanding, experimental and inspiring contemporary art which has power, relevance and meaning for individuals and communities, makes them ideal collaborators for the fellowship programme. 

How to Support
Thanks to the funds raised to date we are well on our way to securing this second placement. Please continue to support the programme and buy your presents for Christmas – your purchase of one of our limited editions will provide funds for the fellowship at BALTIC. Visit the Frieze shop today!
