‘ON A SPACESHIP’ BY IBRAHIM MAHAMA FOR THE FRIEZE X DEUTSCHE BANK EMERGING CURATORS FELLOWSHIP
A new artist edition to support a placement for Black and POC emerging curators at the Whitworth.
Frieze and Deutsche Bank announce the return of the Emerging Curators Fellowship, a national initiative supporting emerging Black and POC curators. The initiative is a collaborative project, bringing together artists and organizations across the non-profit and private sector to increase accessibility, representation and social mobility within the arts as well as creating an opportunity to grow and deepen curatorial practice in some of the UK’s leading public art institutions.
Alongside Deutsche Bank and Frieze funding, the fellowship programme will be supported by proceeds from the sale of a unique work and an artist-led edition by renowned Ghanaian artist Ibrahim Mahama.
The 2022 fellow will work with The Whitworth, an established institution committed to decolonizing art and its spaces through practices of care, accessibility, representation and social mobility.
