Tate, in collaboration with Delfina Foundation, invites applications for a new fellowship as part of the Brooks International Fellowship Programme, now in its fifth year. This upcoming fellowship will enable one visual arts professional to work alongside Tate’s Senior Curator of International Photography, in Tate Modern’s curatorial department for six months from April 2019, complemented by activities at Delfina Foundation.

During this period the Fellow will be part of a Tate team, actively participating in gallery projects and discussions, with special access to Tate’s programme, collection, staff and wider networks. The Fellow will reside at Delfina Foundation, where they will contribute to its own programme by presenting on their research or practice to a range of audiences.

For this fellowship, Tate is particularly interested in candidates currently living and working in (or recently returned from) South Asia or South Asian diaspora communities who would bring their knowledge to collaborate with Tate curators to identify a range of themes that would focus on the shifts in urbanism, the concept of domesticity/home, and their relationship to photography and time-based media art in South Asia and its diasporas in the era of post-independence and beyond.

Brooks International Fellowships are fully funded and are made possible by the generous support of the Rory and Elizabeth Brooks Foundation. Since its founding in 2014, Tate and Delfina Foundation have hosted 12 Brooks International Fellows from Thailand, Germany, France, India, Barbados, Mexico, Brazil, Portugal, Netherlands and Pakistan.
