Opening Hours
Nicholas Fox Weber Curatorial Residencies


The Glucksman is pleased to announce a new programme of curatorial residencies that will take place from 2018–2022 in Cork, Ireland. The residencies are named in honour of the cultural historian, curator and writer, Dr. Nicholas Fox Weber, who is the Executive Director of the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation and an honorary graduate of University College Cork.

Starting in 2018, two paid opportunities will be available annually for curators based outside of Ireland to undertake research within the artistic and academic context of the Glucksman, UCC, as well as to enable wider engagement with the artistic and cultural networks in the Cork region. The objectives of the Nicholas Fox Weber Curatorial Residency programme are to:

– provide time and space for curators to develop exhibition, project or writing outcomes that draw on the regional and interdisciplinary context of the Glucksman

– stimulate knowledge exchange and curatorial discourse within the academic framework of University College Cork

– support curatorial research that engages with artists and cultural practitioners in the Cork region

The Glucksman now invites applications for the 2018 Nicholas Fox Weber Curatorial Residencies.

Each residency will provide accommodation for two weeks in Cork, a stipend of 1500 euro and up to 1000 euro to support travel costs to and from Cork. Successful candidates will be given a curatorial studio for the two-week period in the Glucksman for their research project. One residency will take place with support from the Sirius Arts Centre, Cobh, Co. Cork, and should take place during the period of September 5–23, 2018.
