Fellowship Description:


The fellowship will be structured to support a special exhibition presented at the Cincinnati Art Museum in summer 2020 and its accompanying publication. The project focuses on a group of European paintings from the Berlin State Museums, including many of the most important 16th to 18th-century works in that collection, that traveled from the US Army Collecting Point in Wiesbaden to the United States in late 1945, soon after the end of World War II. These paintings were exhibited at the National Gallery of Art and in thirteen other cities across the country in 1948-49, before returning to Germany. The project explores the controversy that surrounded this transfer of patrimony so soon after universally condemned cultural policies and practices of the Nazis, as well as the reception of the paintings themselves in the United States.

The Fellow will be actively involved in the final nine months of preparation for the exhibition, and in its presentation to the public. The Fellow’s activities may include: working with the editors and publisher to edit and proof the scholarly catalogue; developing an app or micro-site to present multimedia content related to the project; developing the exhibition design; drafting and editing exhibition labels, interpretative text and graphics; helping educate and train docents and museum staff on the exhibition. 

The Fellow will conduct public programs during the run of the exhibition, including programs within established museum series, such as the Summer Teacher Institute, Moving Images, Art After Dark, Gallery Experience tours and Accessibility programs. The fellow may also help plan, execute and participate in an interdisciplinary conference or study day and evening lectures on the exhibition’s topics. 


Requirements:


The ideal candidate will have a Master’s degree in Art History, Modern European History or a related field with a strong knowledge of European painting and/or the history of collecting, and at least one year experience working in a curatorial or museum education/interpretation department.

Candidates must possess:

  • Excellent written and oral communication skills.
  • Computer experience (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, collections database software, etc.).
  • Strong research and library skills.
  • Excellent organizational skills and attention to detail.
  • The ability to read, analyze and interpret artworks and documents.
  • The ability to write business correspondence and lucid art history.
  • Reading and comprehension of German language preferred.

 Candidates should be able to:

  • Cooperate with co-workers to accomplish goals as a team.
  • Demonstrate respect for co-workers and museum visitors.
  • Provide excellent service to museum stakeholders and portray a positive and professional image of the Cincinnati Art Museum.
  • Maintain confidentiality and uphold professional standards.
  • Follow Cincinnati Art Museum protocols, procedures, rules and policies.

The successful candidate will possess enthusiasm for the museum profession and a proven ability to work successfully, independently as well as with others, to achieve strategic institutional objectives.

The Fellow will receive a salaried stipend of $30,000. The Fellow will be considered a fulltime employee for the duration of their fellowship and will be eligible for the benefits associated with full-time employment.
