The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is pleased to announce the inception of the biannual Hall Curatorial Fellowship, an eighteen-month curatorial fellowship 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 Aldrichs mission of leadership in the exhibition of significant and challenging contemporary art with an emphasis on emerging and mid-career artists. The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is located in Ridgefield, Connecticut, 50 miles outside New York City.

Chosen by The Aldrich and an independent jury of distinguished art world professionals, the Hall Fellow will work closely with the curatorial department of the Museum. Together with the curatorial director, she/he will develop the exhibition, oversee its installation, and collaborate with Museum staff to develop programming and an exhibition catalogue. 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.

The Hall Fellow will receive a stipend of $25,000 over an eighteen-month period and a travel allowance. The initial fellowship period will run from June 1, 2006, through December 31, 2007, and the exhibition will be on view from October 2007 through March 2008 at The Aldrich. The Hall Fellow will be expected to travel to and stay at The Aldrich for an appropriate amount of time to successfully develop and implement his/her project; however, the Fellowship is not a full-time residency.

Applications for the Hall Curatorial Fellowship are due at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum no later than February 1, 2006. Selected applicants will be invited for interviews at The Aldrich during March and April 2006. For full information and complete application materials, please visit www.aldrichart.org/general.getinvolved.hallfellowship.html Questions regarding the Hall Fellowship should be addressed to fellowship@aldrichart.org.

The Aldrich Museum is grateful for the generosity of Andy and Christine Hall, who have endowed the Hall Curatorial Fellowship.
