Deadline for applications: December 1st, 2013

Southern Methodist University’s Meadows School of the Arts invites applications to the 2014 Pollock Curatorial Fellowship. This paid 12-month curatorial fellowship begins January 1, 2014 and includes a stipend of 30,000 USD.

The Curatorial Fellowship provides recent graduates in the field with important professional experience. Fellows will manage all elements of exhibitions in the Pollock Gallery including installation, marketing and public relations, budgets and student workers. The Pollock Gallery’s annual season includes two student shows and three to four exhibitions programmed by the fellow in consultation with the Division of Art chair.

Candidates for this position must have a master’s degree in curatorial studies, art history or related field with an emphasis on contemporary art.

The Pollock Gallery plays a significant role in an active academic ecology, extending the experiences of the studio classroom with thoughtful and creative considerations of present and past art forms. It is a vehicle to study a wide array of art practices, providing the Division of Art with an arena for experimental considerations of the space where curatorial and studio practices meet.

– Cover letter: 1,000-1,500 word statement of purpose that outlines past curatorial and publishing experience. Please include interest and/or experience in marketing, development, public programming and creation of discursive events
