Curating Prints Seminar and Other Opportunities



(London, 27 April - 1 May 2020)


Print Quarterly invites applications for a program dedicated to prints connoisseurship and curatorial practice, spanning from printmaking techniques to innovative strategies of display and public engagement in a museum context.

The program will take place over four days in London and its vicinity. Most sessions will be held in museum print rooms, but insights into commercial print publishing, current printmaking and the primary and secondary art market will also be provided. The program will be led by the Editor of Print Quarterly with the contribution of international senior experts in the field.

The program is tailored to early and mid-career curators with responsibility for prints and works on paper seeking professional development. Space permitting, applications from scholars involved with print curating or advanced graduate students pursuing a thesis on a print-related topic will also be considered. A maximum of ten participants will be admitted to the program. The seminars will allow participants to strengthen their knowledge of and familiarity with prints across media and contexts, while exploring new fields and methods, including the non-Western tradition. Besides furthering their knowledge of the subject, the seminar will also stimulate the participants to think differently and further on how to manage, display and deploy their collections for the benefit of the public. Furthermore, through exposure to other museum curators and managers at the host venues and selected experts, participants will develop their network within the community of print scholars. The working language is English. The participants will be asked to prepare one to two short presentations on selected topics.
Travel, accommodation and meal expenses will be covered by the program.

The program is supported the Getty Foundation, as part of The Paper Project: Prints and Drawings Curatorship in the 21st Century.
