Research Awards for Curatorial Intensive Alumni

ICI / Joyce Foundation Research Fellowship

APPLICATION DEADLINE: October 22, 2017

ICI is seeking applicants for the inaugural ICI / Joyce Foundation Research Fellowship for early-to-mid-career curators. This fellowship is geared toward Curatorial Intensive alumni, though we are open to any curator who fits the criteria below.

As part of an ongoing partnership between ICI and the Joyce Foundation to support richer diversity in the curatorial field, this fellowship is available to African, Latinx, Asian, Arab, or Native American (ALAANA) curators based in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, or Wisconsin. Applicants must have 5 to 10 years of curatorial experience, and demonstrate how the fellowship will benefit their professional advancement by supporting ongoing research or a new idea for an exhibition, publication, public program, online platform, or any other curatorial project.

There are two fellowships available. Each fellowship will take place over a period of four months between November 2017 and May 2018. Each curator will receive a stipend of $7,000 to be allocated for research and production, including up to $4,000 in travel funds. The fellows will be responsible for their own travel arrangements and will submit periodic reports to ICI. They will present their research in a public program held at ICI’s Curatorial Hub in New York, and publish a text on the Research section of ICI’s website.

The Dedalus Foundation Research Award for Curatorial Intensive Alumni

Since 2012, the Dedalus Foundation and ICI have been collaborating on a $4,000 award for Curatorial Intensive Alumni to encourage productive networks between curators. The award supports alumni from any of the Curatorial Intensive programs in developing a research project in collaboration with at least one other alum. The requirements to qualify for the award are that the project involves a United States curator or artist, or that research will take place in the U.S. Eligible research projects must have a new aspect to them if they are not a completely new initiative and they must clearly define how the research involves collaboration between alumni. The research project will have a public component at some stage of its development, and awardees are expected to post intermittent updates on their project on ICI’s online research platform.

THE CALL FOR APPLICATIONS IS CURRENTLY CLOSED

About the Dedalus Foundation
Founded in 1981 by the artist Robert Motherwell (1915–1991), the Dedalus Foundation educates the public by fostering public understanding of modern art and modernism through its support of research, education, publications, and exhibitions in this field. The Foundation owns the copyrights to all of Motherwell’s works in all mediums—including his writings, both published and unpublished—and inherited all of his professional papers, notebooks, and archives. The Dedalus Foundation has an active Grants Program, through which it has supported the activities of well over 100 institutions, and numerous individuals have received direct support through scholarships and fellowships. From 1993 through 2010, the Foundation has granted over $6 million in cash grants, almost exclusively in the United States.
