Dr Jessica Clarke announced as 2024 Ursula Hoff Fellow

Monday May 6th, 2024

The Ian Potter Museum of Art has announced Dr Jessica Clark as the recipient of the 2024 Ursula Hoff Fellowship, awarded annually to encourage research into the history of prints and print collecting and the role of collections and scholarship within museums and universities.

The Ursula Hoff Fellow is provided access to collections at The University of Melbourne and the National Gallery of Victoria.

Jessica Clark is a proud palawa/pallawah woman and a curator of contemporary art. She is currently Yalingwa Curator at the ACCA - Australian Centre for Contemporary Art and holds a PhD Fine Arts and Music from the University of Melbourne having undertaken curatorial practice-led research investigating how intercultural curatorial models reframe and redefine narratives, understandings, and experiences of Aboriginal art.

During the two year fellowship Jessica will explore the print collections through research seeking to convey printmaking as intercultural fusion: of ideas, cultures, technologies, histories, and stories tied to lived experience.

Congratulations Jessica!
