VW Fellows

Volkswagen Group of America has been a major partner of MoMA and MoMA PS1 since 2011. Included in this partnership is the support for MoMA PS1’s VW Fellows program, which offers opportunities to the brightest young art world professionals from the United States and around the globe to work alongside curators and staff at MoMA PS1.

The generous support of Volkswagen Group of America has enabled for the appointment of VW Fellows in 2012, 2016, and 2018. In their roles, these individuals have assisted with conducting fundamental research and writing, event and exhibition production, archival documentation, and executive task management at MoMA PS1.

Selected from a large pool of ambitious applicants, the MoMA PS1 VW Fellows are fully integrated into the Museum while devoting their time to training within a specific department. In selecting participants MoMA PS1 casts a wide net, seeking candidates with demonstrated interest in contemporary art and museums.

In fall 2018, MoMA PS1 appointed Harper Jean as the VW Fellow for Development Events and Ellie Burck as the VW Fellow for Digital Marketing and Media.
