Delfina Foundation: Open call with Tate for Brooks International Fellowship Programme
Delfina Foundation, in collaboration with Tate, invites applications for the Brooks International Fellowship Programme.
In 2022 the programme, now in it’s sixth year, is offering two six-month fellowship opportunities:
1. In Tate Research and Interpretation
For this fellowship, Tate encourages applications from candidates working globally in art history or museology to collaborate with Tate’s Research and Interpretation teams to examine Tate’s collection interpretation and the ways it has perpetuated racism and marginalised histories. Research into this material could be undertaken through a variety of approaches, including historiographic, autoethnographic and artistic methodologies.
2. In Tate Modern Curatorial
For this fellowship, Tate encourages applications from candidates working on art in Africa and the African diaspora, and particularly welcomes those based on the African continent, to investigate networks of pan-African Modernism in the second half of the 20th century. Using Tate’s growing collection of modern African and African diaspora art, the research will draw upon ideas relating to decoloniality in the context of arts and culture, histories of the Black Atlantic, cultural studies, art and social practices.
During their fellowships, the Brooks Fellows will be part of a Tate team, actively participating in gallery projects and discussions, with special access to Tate’s programme, collection, staff and wider networks.
The Fellows will reside at Delfina Foundation, where they will contribute to its own programme by presenting on their research or practice to a range of audiences and participating in its public programmes.
Fully funded Brooks International Fellowships are made possible by the generous support of the Rory and Elizabeth Brooks Foundation.
