Hyperallergic is inviting curators to submit short proposals for projects they are currently working on for a $5,000 grant that will help them in their research, while offering the public a window into the process. Each applicant should submit a 250-word proposal or project description explaining their area of research, why it’s important now, and how they would like to present their work to the public.
Each applicant will be expected to contribute two articles to Hyperallergic, participate in a recorded online event, and produce an email exhibition based on some of the material from the research, all within the one-month fellowship period. Like the evolution of mail art, which has since incorporated email and other epistolary forms of communication, an email exhibition is an exhibition that is shared via email. Hyperallergic is interested in curators who are eager to take on this more experimental form, which will be sent to their 150,000 subscribers.
To apply, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your 250 word proposal in the body of the email, along with 2–4 relevant images or files (sound files, jpegs, videos, etc.), and relevant links, including to your website and social accounts. Attachments should not exceed 25 MB. Include a resume or CV, and outline any potential conflicts of interest, which include any financial or personal relationships you might have with those you plan to exhibit or the organizations you plan to work with.
Hyperallergic hopes to accept a wide range of fellows, both experienced and just starting out, and plans to host one fellow a month from August to December.
Deadline: June 30, 2021; 12pm EDT
