In its third year, the Bass Museum of Art Knight Curatorial Fellowship is a one-year fellowship for an emerging curator. Responsibilities include conducting studio visits in Miami, communicating with artists, collectors and arts professionals in the Miami community and assisting in developing public programming. He/she will also work alongside other museum departments to assist in the coordination of exhibitions and contemporary artists' projects.

"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.

About the Bass Museum of Art
Located in Miami Beach, the Bass Museum of Art offers a dynamic year-round calendar of exhibitions dedicated to our mission "we inspire and educate by exploring the connections between our historical collections and contemporary art." This includes art from our permanent collection of Renaissance and Baroque paintings, sculpture, textiles and Egyptian Gallery. Artists' projects, educational programs, lectures, concerts and free family days complement the works on view. Additionally, the museum opened the Lindemann Family Creativity Center in January 2012. The center is the home of the museum's IDEA@thebass program of art classes and workshops. The Bass Museum of Art was founded in 1963 when the City of Miami Beach accepted a collection of Renaissance and Baroque works of art from collectors John and Johanna Bass. The building was designed in 1930 by Russell Pancoast and architect Arata Isozaki designed an addition to the museum between 1998 and 2002 that doubled its size from 15,000 to 35,000 square feet. For more information, please visit
