The QM-Jerome Foundation Fellowship for Emerging Artists in New York City will grant two visual artists $20,000 each, individual studio space, professional development consultations, and close mentorship from QM staff members working toward the artists’ projects. Fellows will have access to individual studios from October 2022 through September 2023. These one-year fellowships will culminate in solo project exhibitions at QM in Fall 2023.

The QM-Jerome Foundation Fellowship is open to emerging visual artists living in the five boroughs of New York City. QM defines an emerging artist as one who is at the beginning of their public career. Eligible artists have completed their studies, but have not had solo exhibitions at commercial galleries or public institutions. Artists will have not yet received major grant funding for their work.

A five-person jury will review applications and make the selection. The jury will be made up of guest juror Jordan Carter, Curator at the Dia Art Foundation, and Queens Museum curatorial staff including: Lauren Haynes, Director of Curatorial Affairs and Programs; Hitomi Iwasaki, Head of Exhibitions/Curator; Lindsey Berfond, Assistant Curator and Studio Program Manager; and Sarah Cho, Assistant Curator.
