Research and Academic Program

ABOUT RAP

The Clark’s Research and Academic Program (RAP) encourages fresh approaches to the production of knowledge about all periods and genres of art, and particularly the objects, conditions, and issues they comprise.


RESEARCH

Fellowships are awarded to promising and established art historians, critics, art writers, and practitioners in other disciplines who are pursuing work that exhibits a critical commitment to inquiry in the analysis, history, theory, or interpretation of visual phenomena.

INTERNATIONAL INITIATIVES

The Clark, with the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, holds a variety of colloquia, workshops, and seminars focused on issues critical to the discipline of art history. 

ACADEMIC PROGRAMS
Clark conferences, symposia, colloquia, conversations, and lectures address vital topics in the field and nurture a broader public understanding of visual arts’ role in culture.
GRADUATE PROGRAM IN THE HISTORY OF ART
The Clark co-sponsors, with Williams College, a Graduate Program in the History of Art, a specialized course of study that prepares students for professions in the academic and museum worlds.
