WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Clark Art Institute's Research and Academic Program (RAP) announces the appointment of its 2021–2022 class of fellows for the upcoming academic year.
The Clark is one of a small number of institutions globally that is both an art museum and a center for research, critical discussion, and higher education in the visual arts. Through RAP, the Clark hosts a residential fellowship program that welcomes top international scholars for periods ranging from two to nine months. To date, the community of Clark Fellows numbers more than 400 individuals hailing from thirty countries, forming a global network of scholars united through the shared experience of academic pursuits undertaken on the Clark's Williamstown campus.
While in residency at the Clark, each fellow pursues an independent research project and presents a free public lecture related to their work. The Clark's library collection—recognized as one of the leading art history libraries in the United States—serves as a central resource for researchers. Scholars live in apartments in a house close to the Clark's campus, providing a collegial environment that fosters collaboration, ongoing dialogue, and exchange of ideas.
