The Gatenby Fellow in Contemporary Art celebrates and seeks to extend a long history of creative art and its histories at the heart the University of Leeds.

You may be at a mid-stage of your career, and a confident practitioner.

You will be interested in the legacies and commitments of Fine Art at Leeds while bringing it into contact with your specialist field and networks.

To be considered for this Fellowship you must be a practitioner with a developing national or international profile seeking to develop or realize a project that resonates with the constellation of art practices and historical and theoretical interests within the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies, across this interdisciplinary research shaped by the Cultural Institute and its many partnerships.
