Tate, in collaboration with Delfina Foundation, invites applications for two Brooks International Fellowship opportunities in 2022. The programme will enable two visual arts professionals to work with Tate colleagues in London for six months commencing in April 2022, complemented by activities at Delfina Foundation.

During this period, each fellow will be part of a Tate team, actively participating in gallery projects and discussions related to their research theme. Fellows will have special access to Tate’s programme, collection, staff and wider networks.

The fellows 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 and contributing to Delfina Foundation’s public programme.

Two Brooks International Fellows will be hosted in either Tate Research and Interpretation or Tate Modern Curatorial.

Brooks International Fellowship in Tate Research and Interpretation
Tate encourages applications from candidates working globally in art history or museology to collaborate with Tate’s Research and Interpretation teams to examine Tate’s collection interpretation and the ways it has perpetuated racism and marginalised histories. Research into this material could be undertaken through a variety of approaches, including historiographic, autoethnographic and artistic methodologies.

Brooks International Fellowship in Tate Modern Curatorial
Tate encourages applications from candidates working on art in Africa and the African diaspora, and particularly welcomes those based on the African continent, to investigate networks of pan-African Modernism in the second half of the 20th century. Using Tate’s growing collection of modern African and African diaspora art, the research will draw upon ideas relating to decoloniality in the context of arts and culture, histories of the Black Atlantic, cultural studies, art and social practices.
