Next Year’s Getty Theme — ‘Display’ Once More

Posted in fellowships, opportunities by Editor on October 11, 2009

Scholars in Residence Applications for the Getty — Due 1 November

‘The Display of Art’ continues as the theme for the Getty Research Institute from 2009–2010 into 2010–2011.

The Getty Research Institute seeks applications from established researchers as well as those at the pre- and postdoctoral levels who are interested in questions bearing upon ‘The Display of Art’ and wish to be in residence at the Getty Research Institute or Getty Villa during the 2010–2011 academic year.

The Display of Art

Art and display are inseparable. When selecting and juxtaposing objects we create narratives, assign meanings, grant relevance, and produce art history. Studying a work of art requires attention to the social, political, economic, and cultural contexts of its display. The display of art will again be at the center of the scholar year, continuing and building on the theme from 2009–2010. Projects may focus on, but are not limited to, the history of museums; display in and of antiquity; private and public modes of display; the display of cultural encounter; display itself as art form; and the links between the display of art and conservation.
