NXTHVN is pleased to announce the opening of its annual open call for Studio and Curatorial Fellows.

Founded by Jason Price and Titus Kaphar, the core principles of NXTHVN’s mission are: mentorship, collaboration, and professional development. In its fellowship program, the organization nurtures and serves a community of artists, curators and high school apprentices through a dynamic learning model that focuses on two key areas of professionalization in the field of art: access and education.

Each year NXTHVN welcomes up to seven artists and two curators to participate in its paid 10-month intensive Fellowship Program. Each fellow will receive studio or office space, a stipend, and subsidized housing. The application deadline is February 21, 2022.

Selected from an international pool of applicants, fellows relocate to New Haven, Conn., to participate in NXTHVN’s mentorship-driven curriculum which includes professional development sessions led by visiting artists, curators, scholars, and practitioners. Selected fellows are also matched with a high school apprentice, for focused one-on-one mutual learning, which gives the next local generation a chance to grow and excel in creative fields. The fellowship year culminates with an annual group show at a prominent gallery space.

Through active participation in NXTHVN’s year-long programs, early-career artists and curators make personal strides and interpersonal connections that advance their careers. NXTHVN provides the groundwork for artists and curators to emerge from the fellowship program as active professionals geared toward making significant contributions in art and culture through their creative work.

In 2022, NXTHVN will welcome its fourth cohort of fellows from August 22, 2022-May 31, 2023. The Fellowship Application is available online and all application materials must be submitted online through Submittable. Selected applicants will be notified in April 2022.
