London | 2023 Curatorial Fellowship for those identifying with Greater Chinese cultures

Asymmetry is calling for applications for their fully funded Curatorial Fellowship, a six-month placement for a mid-career curator who identifies with Greater Chinese and Sinophone cultures and identities, based in the regions or internationally. The selected fellow will work in London with Whitechapel Gallery’s Exhibitions and Education departments, 3 April–17 September 2023. 

About the fellowship

The opportunity is geared towards a mid-career curator to gain training, skills, and experience, while embedded in the curatorial workings of Whitechapel Gallery. The Fellowship will provide professional development opportunities related to exhibition organisation, registrar tasks, catalogue assistance, artist liaison support, general support to the exhibition department, project-based research, and public programming. Furthermore, the Fellow will have the opportunity to design a public-facing programme in conjunction with their specialisation during their placement. 

Additionally, Whitechapel Gallery will be responsible for delivering workshops with senior staff members across the organisation, facilitate introductions to other London-based art institutions, identify opportunities to attend conferences and/or seminars relevant to the fellow’s work and organise a research trip for the fellow. 

Situated within Delfina Foundation’s residency programme, the fellow will also benefit from further professional development opportunities, mentoring as well as peer-to-peer exchange with other practitioners in-residence alongside accommodation.

In addition to the training at partner institutions, Asymmetry will offer its HQ as a communal space to hot-desk, carry out individual research, and to host public-facing programming, as well as support in networking, PR, and media exposure throughout the Fellowship.

Fellowship support

  • All organisation and logistical costs of the Fellowship will be covered, including but not limited to per diems and accommodation, international flights to and from the UK, UK airport transfers, transportation within London, visa and immigration requirements, health care and insurance coverage 
  • The fellow will be provided with renumeration equal to London Living Wage for the duration of the Fellowship through the above allowances
