Williamstown, MA, September 15, 2019 – October 1, 2020
Application deadline: Oct 15, 2019
A new month-long fellowship in the Research and Academic Program at the Clark Art Institute will allow curators, whether completing a catalogue essay or conceptualizing a future exhibition, to carry out research and participate fully in the intellectual and residential life of the Clark and its Research and Academic Program, but do so for periods of time more suitable to most museum professionals.
Scholars may propose topics that relate to the visual arts, their history, practice, theory, or interpretation. Any proposal that contributes to understanding the nature of artistic activity and the intellectual, social, and cultural worlds with which it is connected is welcome. Subjects of investigation might come from any period, from prehistory to the present, and from anywhere in the world. Projects can be focused on works in any medium and can employ any methodological approach. Attention, however, will be given to proposals that promise to deepen, transform, or challenge those methods currently practiced within art history or that have the prospect of enhancing an understanding of the role of images in other disciplines in the humanities.
Applications are due by October 15, 2019 [arthist]
