London | Brooks International Fellowship - South Asia | call to curators, researchers, art historians


The Brooks International Fellowship Programme at Tate London, in collaboration with Delfina Foundation, invites applications for the South Asia-focused 2014 programme. A 12-week research fellowship in London at Tate Modern or Tate Britain is offered, with travel, accommodation and other costs covered.

This new programme will enable three curators, researchers or art historians to develop their research around a specific theme at Tate over a twelve-week period in autumn 2014, complemented by activities at Delfina Foundation.

Fellows will be part of a team at Tate, working alongside a peer at the gallery on a day-to-day basis. They will take part in wider activities and discussions at Tate with special access to the collection, archive, staff and networks.

Fellows will also participate in and help form public programming at Delfina Foundation. This will provide an important opportunity for fellows to engage in internal events, public talks, screenings and panel discussions that relate their research at Tate to a wider, global context and to other thematic activities at Delfina Foundation.
