Arizona State University, Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, application deadline 28 October 2011
With Windgate Foundation funding, the Arizona State University have a position open for 18 months to assist us with our craft-based collections. As per our grant proposal Crafting a Continuum: Rethinking the Contemporary Craft Field we will establish an 18 month curatorial fellowship at the Herberger Institute in contemporary craft and identify candidates who have completed undergraduate or graduate level work and seeking intensive training in curatorial practice with a focus on contemporary craft. They will play a significant role in the development of the strategic plan, collection and exhibition development, residencies and advisory committee. This additional curatorial staffing will allow us to accomplish our ambitious goals as stated in the grant proposal and prepare/mentor a new curator for substantive and innovative work in contemporary craft in an art museum. A great opportunity for someone getting out of school and needs some real experience: The full details of the role and how to apply can be found here.
