The Bronx Museum of the Arts is accepting applications for its celebrated AIM Fellowship program (formerly Artist In the Marketplace). Entering its 40th year, the AIM Fellowship provides career boosting resources to New York City's most promising emerging visual artists. The Fellowship's no-cost workshops and seminars offer intimate access to leading experts and cultural producers that guide artists on the practicalities of developing a sustainable studio practice in today’s competitive arts and culture ecosystems.
Two cohorts of artists (Spring and Fall) are selected on the basis of need and merit by a jury of arts professionals who will take part in a four-month long course of professional development workshops, seminars, and community-building activities. AIM Fellows walk away empowered with key resources to improve artist statements, project financing, communication, marketing, and other areas of career management. As New York’s creative communities remain vulnerable to market forces, AIM offers artists an opportunity to engage in strategic career development while building close-knit relationships with peers and industry insiders through on-going engagement and off-site activities.
AIM's incomparable faculty are active and respected industry experts that offer unfiltered insight on the inner workings of the art market. AIM's workshops are currently led by Brian Boucher (arts journalist), Robin Cembalest (media strategist), Monika Fabijanska (independent curator), Cara Jordan (art historian and editor), Mary Mattingly (artist), Rebecca Selkowe (financial planner), Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento (Art+Law Program), Melissa Rachleff Burtt (NYU), and Lauren Wittels (Luhring Augustine), among others.
The deadline to apply is October 9, 2019.
