“These three one-year Knight Curatorial Fellowships seek to enhance the curatorial dialogue in the Miami community, whereby artists, art professionals, collectors and art enthusiasts engage in critical conversations about art and cultural issues as well as promote an exchange of ideas,” states Silvia Karman Cubiñá, Executive Director and Chief Curator, Bass Museum of Art.

“Connecting these curators from across the globe with Miami’s renowned contemporary artists will help to expand the reach of the community’s art scene,” states Dennis Scholl, vice president/arts. “We hope this program will encourage artistic exchange for years to come.”

In March 2011, The Bass Museum of Art initiated the first of three one-year curatorial fellowships focusing on contemporary art thanks to generous support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, as part of its Knight Arts Challenge.
