  +
Each year the Center for Italian Modern Art (CIMA) awards multiple '''CIMA Fellowships''' to support research and study of Italian modern and contemporary art for doctoral and post-doctoral scholars. Citizens of all nationalities are eligible. CIMA offers a unique experience to its fellows: the annual exhibition serves as a hub for scholars from diverse academic backgrounds to share research derived from the artworks on view with each other and the public. Emphasis is split between individualized study—gaining an intimate knowledge of artists represented through close looking and through researching in depth a topic raised by the installation—and public discourse, as represented by collaboration on public programming and leading interactive exhibition tours. During their residency, fellows also have the opportunity to pursue their own research and connect with scholars and other professionals in and around New York.

'''Summer-Fall 2021 Fellowships'''
  +

The exhibition for CIMA’s next season focuses on the early body of work created by the painter Mario Schifano (1934–1998) between 1960 and 1965. Originally planned for October 2020-June 2021, the exhibition has been rescheduled to January-November 2021 in order to maintain the necessary safety and weather the logistical disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. As institutions worldwide are cancelling fellowship opportunities, CIMA is reaffirming the vital importance of new scholarship through the expansion of its fellowship program.

Fellowships and Postdocs[edit | edit source]


Center for Italian Modern Art (USA:NY) - Summer/Fall 2021 Fellowships - Deadline: February 1, 2020[edit | edit source]

Each year the Center for Italian Modern Art (CIMA) awards multiple CIMA Fellowships to support research and study of Italian modern and contemporary art for doctoral and post-doctoral scholars. Citizens of all nationalities are eligible. CIMA offers a unique experience to its fellows: the annual exhibition serves as a hub for scholars from diverse academic backgrounds to share research derived from the artworks on view with each other and the public. Emphasis is split between individualized study—gaining an intimate knowledge of artists represented through close looking and through researching in depth a topic raised by the installation—and public discourse, as represented by collaboration on public programming and leading interactive exhibition tours. During their residency, fellows also have the opportunity to pursue their own research and connect with scholars and other professionals in and around New York.

Summer-Fall 2021 Fellowships

The exhibition for CIMA’s next season focuses on the early body of work created by the painter Mario Schifano (1934–1998) between 1960 and 1965. Originally planned for October 2020-June 2021, the exhibition has been rescheduled to January-November 2021 in order to maintain the necessary safety and weather the logistical disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. As institutions worldwide are cancelling fellowship opportunities, CIMA is reaffirming the vital importance of new scholarship through the expansion of its fellowship program.
