Ridgefield CT (January 2005): The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is pleased to announce that Susanne Ghez, Kasper Koenig, and Harry Philbrick will be the jurors for the inaugural Hall Curatorial Fellowship. The biannual Hall Curatorial Fellowship is an eighteen-month opportunity for international curators who wish to gain curatorial experience and professional development in an American museum setting. The Hall Fellow will be responsible for curating an original exhibition in keeping with The Aldrich’s mission of leadership in the exhibition of significant and challenging contemporary art with an emphasis on emerging and mid-career artists.

Since 1974 Susanne Ghez has been director of The Renaissance Society at The University of Chicago, an independent, non-collecting contemporary art museum. Kasper Koenig has been director of the Ludwig Museum, Cologne, since November 2000. Harry Philbrick will be celebrating his tenth anniversary this fall as the director of The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, a non-collecting contemporary art museum dedicated to emerging and mid-career artists located in Ridgefield, CT.

Deadline for Hall Fellowship applications is February 15, 2006. To be eligible for the Hall Curatorial Fellowship, an applicant must be an art professional with a focus on contemporary art, and a citizen of a country other than the United States of America. The applicant must be proficient in English, have prior experience as a curator or co-curator of at least three professional exhibitions of contemporary art, and be able to travel to the United States of America.
