Tate, in collaboration with Delfina Foundation, invites applications for the Brooks International Fellowship Programme 2020. Now in its sixth year, the programme will enable two visual arts professionals to work with Tate colleagues in London for six months commencing April 2020, complemented by activities at Delfina Foundation.

During this period, each Fellow will be part of a Tate team, actively participating in gallery projects and discussions related to their research theme. Fellows will have special access to Tate’s programme, collection, staff and wider networks.

The Fellows will reside at Delfina Foundation, where they will contribute to its own programme by presenting on their research or practice to a range of audiences and contributing to Delfina Foundation’s public programme.

Two Brooks International Fellows will be hosted in 2020, one each in the Tate Britain Curatorial department and Tate’s Collection Care department.


Tate encourages applications from candidates working globally in sociological, art historical, historical, curatorial or anthropological fields to collaborate with Tate curators to enquire into challenges, opportunities and new, twenty-first century methods of exhibiting women artists, particularly historic artists (pre-1918) associated with (but not necessarily based in) Britain.


Tate encourages applications from candidates working globally in the field of collection management to undertake a programme of research into changing models of partnership in relation to collection management. Using Tate’s collection as the focus, the research will consider how institutions acquire, lend, borrow, manage and share their collections, in partnership, across institutions and countries.

Fully funded Brooks International Fellowships are made possible by the generous support of the Rory and Elizabeth Brooks Foundation.

PLEASE NOTE: the deadline for this opportunity has been extended to 12.00 (midday) GMT, on Monday 18 November 2019.
