The Cubitt Curatorial Fellowship – now in its 14th edition - is open to applications.

This unique opportunity of research and curatorial experimentation in the field of visual arts is based on a 24 month residency at the renowned Cubitt Gallery, the only such scheme in the UK. The Curatorial Fellowship has pioneered an individual model and developed into a major platform for curatorial development, leading Cubitt’s reputation as an experimental, artist-led institution for nurturing, showcasing and reimagining emerging practice.  Since its inception in 2001, the Fellowship has supported 13 curators & collectives at pivotal points in their career and propelled the work of over 400 emerging artists and curators, many that are now shaping the art world.

Cubitt is an independent charitable organisation, consisting of a non-profit Gallery and Curatorial Fellowship, a large-scale, locally focused Education and Community Programme and affordable artists studios. Since its founding in 1991, Cubitt has run as a co-operative led by 30 practising artists, a diverse community of practitioners from a variety of backgrounds and at various stages in their careers.

The Fellowship provides an opportunity for learning and for professional development; the Fellow crucially delivers an individual perspective through a curatorial programme that sits in-between the artist-led and the institutional. Responding to the challenges and requirements of a small, independent organisation active on the London and international scene for the past 31 years, the Fellow is professionally invested in Cubitt as a member of staff, and draws from the incredible resources of the organisation, including its archives, education projects, partnerships and community of artist members.

We are committed to improving representation and diversity at Cubitt. We particularly encourage applications from individuals or collectives from underrepresented groups such as people from Global Majority backgrounds, who are LGBTQA+ identifying, those with a disability and neurodiverse conditions. 

It is our responsibility to make the application process accessible. If you require this information or any further information in a different format, please get in touch through [email protected] and you’ll hear back from us.
