2023 Suzanne Fiol Curatorial Fellowship Open Call

2023 Suzanne Fiol Curatorial Fellowship Open Call

ISSUE Project Room is pleased to announce an Open Call for applications for the 2023 Suzanne Fiol Curatorial Fellowship program, which supports an emerging, New York-based curator in the organization and presentation of challenging and innovative projects during the 2023 season.

Interested applicants are asked to write to curatorial@issueprojectroom.org to receive the application form. Completed applications are due by Friday, July 8, 12:00 noon EST.

About ISSUE Project Room:
ISSUE plays a vital role in NYC’s cultural ecology, facilitating the commission and premiere of new works and presenting a diverse array of artists working across sound, movement, film, performance, and literature. Programming aims to bring recognition to artists whose important contributions fall beyond infrastructural boundaries of discipline or genre, elude audience expectations, or are otherwise underrepresented as a result of bias within the fields of art and performance, and broader histories of social and economic participation. Since its inception in 2003 under the guiding vision of Suzanne Fiol (1960-2009), ISSUE has demonstrated a commitment to expanding the boundaries of artistic practice. Suzanne was an extraordinary spirit, a force of nature, and a prominent figure in the visual and performing arts worlds as both an artist and curator.

About the Fellowship:
Now entering its seventh year, the Suzanne Fiol Curatorial Fellowship supports an emerging curator to realize three ambitious events that will significantly transform and expand their own curatorial practice. ISSUE is proud to honor Suzanne and her vision by sharing an opportunity that supports ongoing performance and curatorial work that advances artistic discourse.

Curatorial Fellows are provided:
– a $3,000 curatorial stipend;
– a dedicated ISSUE funded budget to produce three public programs
– free access to rehearsal space at one of ISSUE’s partner venues in advance of each program;
– access to ISSUE’s extensive archive;
– curatorial, marketing, and technical support for the duration of the Fellowship as well as mentorship for the incubation and execution of new projects;
– Professional development opportunities, such as technical training and support with grant writing may be available pending interest; and
– free access to all ISSUE programs over the course of the residency year.

  • The Curatorial Fellow will be chosen by a Selection Committee composed of ISSUE’s Artistic Advisory Council members and current ISSUE curators. Applicants are evaluated upon the inventiveness, artistic strength, feasibility, and relevance of individual projects to ISSUE’s broader mission. Information about current and past Curatorial Fellows can found on ISSUE’s website:
