The TFA Curatorial Fellowship launched in 2023 by Charlotte-based artist and curator Jessica Gaynelle Moss in partnership with Irina Toshkova of TFA Advisory. This initiative acts as a springboard for emerging and early-career curators by providing financial support, professional development, and practical experience. 


Each year, one emerging curator is provided with an unrestricted honorarium, one-on-one mentorship with a national practitioner, connection to a broad network of artists and arts professionals, professional support including review of resumes, websites, proposals, and more, and a $10,000 budget to produce a small publication and exhibition at TFAA (2325 Crescent Ave, Charlotte, NC 28207).

The program launched with the inaugural Curatorial Fellow Alexandra Jane. The Fellowship concluded with a culminating exhibition, curated by Jane titled ‘And Sew it Seems’, on April 25, 2024 at TFA Gallery + Advisory in Charlotte, NC. The exhibition challenges traditional notions of Black craftsmanship by fusing centuries-old techniques and afro-futurist storytelling. The opening reception drew the gallery's largest in-person audience yet, with over 200 people visiting the 1,500 sqft space over the course of three hours.


Applications for the 2025-2026 Curatorial Fellowship will open in May 2025.

The TFA Fellowship is actively seeking sponsors to support the operational needs of the program.
