Prospect Art Curatorial Research Fellowship

We are seeking a curatorial research fellow at any stage of their career to help support the BROADCAST arm of our programming, highlighting media-based artists throughout the year. The selected candidate will design a cohesive program comprised of at least four BROADCAST segments (open to the public online events ranging from screenings, Q&A sessions with artists, and/or workshops) organized around a theme of their choosing. The research will be conducted from June to August 2024; at the end of that period, the fellow will present their program (and budget) to Prospect Art to seek funding to support the events and the curator in 2025. During this time, the curatorial fellow will be part of the NEW WORK review committee and will be expected to select half the artists for their program from the open call. This is an outstanding opportunity for the candidate to come in direct contact with a vast scope of artists. The selected curator will be awarded a $500 research honorarium for their curatorial research, with the possibility of receiving additional funds to conduct the program in 2025. We are particularly interested in curators who have a strong interest in environmental issues, climate change, and the impact of human existence in the arts.

Prospect Art was conceived during the 2020 pandemic. We are looking towards a world of representation and equality by creating new opportunities for local, national, and international artists. The organization is structured as an agile, responsive entity to serve artists, the local Los Angeles community, and beyond by supporting existing and new works to be presented to the public. We’re interested in breaking down silos and sharing information and knowledge to further artists’ careers and forge new alliances with the community.

Eligibility and Criteria:

– Open to artist-curators, academics, art historians, curators, graduate students, Ph.D. candidates, and those involved in post-doctoral research based anywhere in the world.

– Not open to undergraduate students.

– The ability to address contemporary issues with a background and understanding of art and cultural histories with an interest in media-based works.

Applicant Requirements:

– A short CV detailing your professional practice (up to 5 pages).

– One-paragraph biography of the applicant.

– One paragraph about an artist we have supported during our past two years of programming that interests you.

– Link to some of your online publications and/or curatorial statements and/or links to curatorial projects.

Duties for Awardees:

– Participate in the review committee for NEW WORK in the summer of 2024.

– Create a curatorial theme with online events and artists for our 2025 Broadcast Program.
