Marilynn Thoma Fellows

Curatorial Fellow In Art of the Spanish Americas

September 19, 2022

The Thoma Foundation is accepting applications for a Curatorial Fellow in Art of the Spanish Americas to join our team!

The Curatorial Fellow will lead all aspects of our Arts of the Spanish Americas (ASA) collection including research, documentation, acquisitions, and promotion of the collection, oversee fellowships and work collaboratively with other departments within the foundation to coordinate loans and advise on grants related to the collection.

The position responsibilities will be broken into two parts. 50% of the Fellow’s time will be devoted to research, documentation, and analysis of the existing ASA collection. The remaining 50% will involve proactive outreach with leading scholars and museums to expand awareness of the Thoma’s ASA collection with the intention to introduce loan opportunities for future exhibitions, and networking with dealers and auction houses to pursue new acquisition opportunities.

The ASA Curatorial Fellow will utilize excellent interpersonal skills and a dynamic personality to cultivate relationships that lead to new partnerships with art organizations and museums around the world. This includes being a visible and active member of the national and international art community. This position does require some travel to conduct site-specific research, to meet with museums, auction houses and dealers and to build relationships with leaders in the field. Building and deepening relationships in South America and throughout the field are of vital importance. The person who holds this position should build on the work of the prior fellow and add to that work. There are many wonderful opportunities at the Thoma Foundation to really make this position your own.

Please see the full eligibility criteria and application guidelines here.

To Apply

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
