Object Study Workshops in Chinese Art: Call for Workshop Proposals
Art history faculty members are invited to propose topics for two object study workshops, part of a new series organized by the Freer|Sackler in partnership with the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Funded by a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the series comprises four workshops—two in 2013 and two in 2014. Each one is designed for a group of about 12 graduate students in Chinese art history, selected through an open application process.
We are now issuing a call for proposals for the two 2014 workshops.
The 2014 workshops will be held at the Freer|Sackler and Nelson-Atkins. Each workshop will be organized by an art history faculty member in collaboration with a curator at the respective museum (F|S: Stephen Allee; Nelson-Atkins: Colin Mackenzie). Depending on the workshop requirements, it may be possible to include an additional outside expert (conservator or conservation scientist, for example) as finances permit.
Workshop leaders (faculty member and curator) are expected to create a weeklong program of object study, drawing on the strengths of the collection and involving other areas of the museum (conservation, archives), as their program demands.
The deadline for 2014 workshop proposals is August 31, 2013.
