RESIDENTIAL CURATORIAL FELLOWSHIP – The Jeanne and Ralph Graham Collections Fellow

Cranbrook Art Museum is accepting applications for a full-time, paid, curatorial assistant in residence as its 2022–2023 Jeanne and Ralph Graham Curatorial Fellow. This is a unique opportunity for an emerging museum curator with a passion for contemporary art to play an important role in the presentation and interpretation of Cranbrook’s collections and exhibitions programs. A major thrust of the Art Museum’s exhibitions, public art projects, and collections over the past seven years has been a focus on diversifying the artists that it presents and collects. This, together with our educational engagements and public art projects, has deepened our connections to the cities of Detroit, Flint, and Pontiac. The Curatorial Fellow will be an essential partner in furthering this important work.

The successful applicant will become a key member of the curatorial team and is actively involved in the research, development, and execution of exhibitions and programs. The intimate scale of the institution ensures that Fellows are exposed to all aspects of museum operations. Since its inception in 1998, the Jeanne and Ralph Graham Collections Fellowship at Cranbrook Art Museum has attracted talented new curators who have gone on to lead curatorial programs in major museums across the country.
