Bursaries for Art Fund Curators Programme at Frieze Masters 2022

Together with Frieze and the National Gallery Subject Specialist Network: European Paintings pre-1900, Art Fund is delighted to offer 10 fully funded places for UK curators to attend a two-day programme exploring the subject of historical collections that look to engage with contemporary art.

Art Fund Curators Programme at Frieze Masters

This year Frieze, with Art Fund support, will offer fully funded places on the programme for up to 10 UK based curators from regional museums who often do not have the travel budgets that allow for easy exchange with their national counterparts. Working in partnership with the SSN for European Paintings pre-1900 and The National Gallery, through the programme we’re aiming to bring together a cohort of emerging career curators from diverse and underrepresented backgrounds to explore the subject of historical collections that look to engage with contemporary art.

The programme will include a keynote in-conversation, curators’ workshop, tour of Frieze Masters, as well as a curatorial introduction and access to The Credit Suisse Exhibition Lucian Freud: New Perspectives (The National Gallery).

Deadline to apply: Wednesday 10 August, 5pm
