Center for Jewish History (CJH)
Fellowships to USA, Canada, and International curators for research projects that involve the collections of eligible Jewish institutions. Eligible applicants must have at least three years of experience curating exhibitions. In reviewing the applicant's portfolio of exhibitions, preference will be given to those candidates whose projects are formally and/or conceptually interdisciplinary. Fellowships will take place at a historical center in NYC over the course of 3 months.
The Center for Jewish History is delighted to announce the Sid Lapidus Curatorial Fellowship - a new fellowship for curators to support their original research and conceptualization of exhibition projects that draw from the collections of the Center's partner institutions: American Jewish Historical Society, American Sephardi Federation, Leo Baeck Institute, Yeshiva University Museum, and YIVO Institute for Jewish Research.
Fellows will be able to consult the collections a) to inform and shape their new or in-process exhibition projects; b) to further contextualize in-process exhibitions with primary sources from the collections ; and c) to present and reference the collections in exhibition catalogues and accompanying materials, including digital components of exhibitions. Please note that the conditions of usage and loans of any objects would be subject to separate agreements negotiated directly with the Center’s partner institutions.
During their residency, fellows will deliver at least one Master Class/workshop to students of curatorial studies. They are also expected to deliver a presentation about the project of their choice to a broader audience. The fellowship will conclude with a report on the fellow's activity (an exhibition proposal and/or conceptualization of use of the collections in proposed exhibitions).
