Doctoral Candidate Jennifer Baez Participates in Competitive Mellon Foundation Seminar

Published September 2, 2019

This summer, doctoral candidate Jennifer Baez was one of 16 graduate students from universities around the world selected to participate in the 6th annual Center for Curatorial Leadership/Mellon Foundation Seminar in Curatorial Practice, held at the CCL headquarters in Manhattan. The experience offered a 360-degree view of curatorial work. Participants met with major industry stakeholders, including collectors, dealers, framers, foundation executives, education department heads, and museum trustees and directors, as well as early-career curators working in the New York City area.

The seminar incorporated a mentorship program. Participants attended workshops with senior scholars from local universities, who led discussions on various topics related to their experience. Jennifer remarks that “the seminar was a remarkable opportunity, on a personal and professional level, and helped me to really grasp the interdependence of curatorial work in a range of institutions.”
