July 9, 2020
In a nation-wide competition that will bring together the country’s most promising young scholars in curatorial practice, Art History PhD Candidate Nora Lambert was selected as one of fourteen doctoral students to join the 2020 Center of Curatorial Leadership/Mellon Foundation Seminar in Curatorial Practice. As the current Andrew W. Mellon Curatorial Fellow, Lambert is also curating the 2021 exhibition, Lust, Love, and Loss in Renaissance Europe, which will open in Winter Quarter at the university’s own Smart Museum of Art
The CCL/Mellon Seminar in Curatorial Practice provides art history Ph.D. students in all fields of specialty with an in-depth introduction to working in museums. The two-week intensive seminar combines exhibition and collection tours, conversations with curators and cultural leaders, and group exercises at New York City institutions. With support from a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the seminar provides a critical training opportunity for emerging curatorial professionals. Students receive the extraordinary opportunity to observe, analyze, and engage in the critical responsibilities of museums through a range of institutional contexts.
Nora joins a prestigious list of our graduate students who have been selected to participate in this seminar, which includes current Ph.D student Chloe Pelletier, recent graduate Kristopher Driggers, and alumni Nancy Thebaut and Anne Feng.
