MoMA Announces the Establishment of the Brooke Alexander Fellowship in the Department of Drawings and Prints

The Museum of Modern Art

The Museum of Modern Art announces the launch of the Brooke Alexander Fellowship, a new two-year position in the Department of Drawings and Prints that provides mentorship, hands-on curatorial training, and research and travel opportunities for a college graduate who has a strong interest in modern and contemporary drawings and prints. Named in honor of the gallerist and prolific publisher Brooke Alexander and funded through the generosity of many who wished to memorialize Alexander’s extraordinary contributions to the field, the fellowship aspires to encourage and support future generations of curators and scholars who specialize in works on paper.

“Works on paper are today a vital part of the Museum’s collection galleries, both energizing and broadening the narratives of modern and contemporary art. This new position creates a welcome opportunity to develop further awareness about drawing and printmaking among an emerging generation of curatorial professionals,” said Christophe Cherix, the Robert Lehman Foundation Chief Curator of Drawings and Prints.
