Summer Curatorial Fellowship

C21 in partnership with the Department of Art History invites applications for a six-week intensive Summer Curatorial Fellowship. Two Curatorial Fellows will be tasked with working across at least two gallery spaces on UWM’s campus to jumpstart a multimodal accessibility initiative. The Mathis Gallery and new C21 Gallery aim to build physical and digital infrastructures that would 1) improve on and integrate researcher resources and 2) increase public visibility of UWM gallery spaces and events. The chosen fellows will be an integral part of the planning process. 

One fellow will be placed with the Mathis Gallery and consider how to integrate collections portals (between gallery and library) and how to increase the visibility of the space through digital storying techniques. The other fellow will work with the C21 gallery and explore how the collection may fit in both digital and physical spaces. Both fellows will work together to build a plan for future UWM cross-gallery database integration (researcher accessibility) and a potential future website populated with cross-gallery information and events (public accessibility). 

The fellowship period will take place between May 23 – June 30, 2022 and/or based on mutually agreed-upon terms to complete the fellowship deliverables. Fellows will be compensated $1500 for their efforts. Graduate students in the humanities, social sciences, and library and information sciences are encouraged to apply.

Application submissions are now CLOSED.
