The Aldrich Announces the Inaugural
Hall Curatorial Fellowship 2006-07

The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is pleased to 
announce the inception of the biannual Hall 
Curatorial Fellowship, an eighteen-month 
curatorial fellowship for international curators 
who wish to gain curatorial experience and 
professional development in an American museum 
setting. The Hall Fellow will be responsible for 
curating an original exhibition in keeping with 
The Aldrich’s mission of leadership in the 
exhibition of significant and challenging 
contemporary art with an emphasis on emerging and 
mid-career artists. The Aldrich Contemporary Art 
Museum is located in Ridgefield, Connecticut, 50 
miles outside New York City.

Chosen by The Aldrich and an independent jury of 
distinguished art world professionals, the Hall 
Fellow will work closely with the curatorial 
department of the Museum. Together with the 
curatorial director, she/he will develop the 
exhibition, oversee its installation, and 
collaborate with Museum staff to develop 
programming and an exhibition catalogue. To be 
eligible for the Hall Curatorial Fellowship, an 
applicant must be an art professional with a 
focus on contemporary art, and a citizen of a 
country other than the United States of America. 
The applicant must be proficient in English, have 
prior experience as a curator or co-curator of at 
least three professional exhibitions of 
contemporary art, and be able to travel to the 
United States of America.

The Hall Fellow will receive a stipend of $25,000 
over an eighteen-month period and a travel 
allowance. The initial fellowship period will run 
from June 1, 2006, through December 31, 2007, and 
the exhibition will be on view from October 2007 
through March 2008 at The Aldrich. The Hall 
Fellow will be expected to travel to and stay at 
The Aldrich for an appropriate amount of time to 
successfully develop and implement his/her 
project; however, the Fellowship is not a 
full-time residency.

Applications for the Hall Curatorial Fellowship 
are due at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum no 
later than February 1, 2006. Selected applicants 
will be invited for interviews at The Aldrich 
during March and April 2006. For full information 
and complete application materials, please visit 
Questions regarding the Hall Fellowship should be 
addressed to fellowship at aldrichart.org.

The Aldrich Museum is grateful for the generosity 
of Andy and Christine Hall, who have endowed the 
Hall Curatorial Fellowship.
