MA student Sarah Ahmed has won the very competitive ArtTable Fellowship
Art History MA student Sarah Ahmed has won the very competitive ArtTable Fellowship for this summer to assist a very exciting curatorial project at LACMA, assisting Dr. Linda Komaroff, curator of Islamic Art at LACMA. Sarah will work on LACMA's upcoming show "Women Defining Women in Contemporary Art of the East and Beyond", planned for 2023.
"ArtTable Fellowship program addresses the marked lack of diversity in arts employment. The objective is to provide quality real work experiences and mentorship for female identifying graduate/pre/post-doc students and emerging professionals from diverse cultural/racial/ethnic/socio-economic backgrounds generally underrepresented in the field to aid their transition from academic to professional careers in the visual arts, including but not limited to: curatorial, education, public programming, archival research and collections management. Through one-on-one mentoring relationships with ArtTable members, every year, a selected number of fellows have the opportunity to work with an established leader in the field and gain exposure to a range of professional activities at first-class cultural institutions throughout a five - eight week period during the summer."
Please join us in congratulating Sarah for this remarkable accomplishment!
