Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) announces a new curatorial fellowship thanks to the generous support of the Ford Foundation. The Ford Foundation Curatorial Fellowship at PAMM is offered to students of underrepresented ethnic backgrounds who have completed their studies at the undergraduate level and is designed to help individuals interested in embarking on a curatorial career. Over the course of 24 months the Curatorial Fellow will conduct extended research and help organize annual exhibitions of the museum’s permanent collection.

“Modeled on successful programs at other art museums around the country the fellowship program supports PAMM’s and the Ford Foundation’s shared goals to encourage diversity and access to the museum and curatorial fields,” said Director Franklin Sirmans.

“This fellowship greatly supports our curatorial and exhibitions programming that reflects Greater Miami’s unique and diverse community,” said Chief Curator Tobias Ostrander.

For its inaugural fellowship, PAMM seeks one qualified candidate who will work within the curatorial department at PAMM from September 2017 through September 2019. The fellow will work to support the curatorial team with all phases of exhibition development, including: checklist development; lender and artist relations; publication development; writing texts for exhibition interpretation, online content, and press and promotional materials; exhibition floor plan development, installation; and related public program development. Successful candidates will demonstrate interest and expertise in a curatorial focus of their choice in modern and contemporary art that reflects Greater Miami’s diverse community and pivotal geographic location at the crossroads of the Americas.

Applicants must submit the following documents to eromero@pamm.org:
–Letter of interest that includes an outline of the candidate’s proposed curatorial focus
–3 academic or museum references
