Mentorship Placement

During the Summer between their first and second years, each student conducts direct, project-based work at an art institution and receives mentoring from a curator, scholar, critic, or other arts professional. The Mentorship Program was initiated to expand the individual student’s existing base of curatorial research, collegial relationships, and professional skills. Through a concentrated period of practical, hands-on work, students are introduced to projects and institutional contexts that they have personally indicated a longer-term interest in. In addition to broadening students’ existing frames of knowledge to holistically develop their curatorial practice, we also hope to encourage existing practices of collegiality within the curatorial field, by way of interpersonal, cross-cultural, and intergenerational exchange.
