The Getty Conservation Institute (GCI) Professional Fellowship is a three-year program designed to provide in-depth opportunities for practitioners to build and strengthen their skills and experience as conservation professionals, while working under the guidance of experienced GCI staff.
The 2017–2020 fellow in the Conserving Modern Architecture Initiative (CMAI) will work closely with architects, engineers, conservators and scientists as an integral part of this GCI initiative to advance the practice of conserving twentieth-century heritage, with a focus on modern architecture. CMAI is organized around five areas of work that respond to critical conservation challenges as identified by the GCI during the first phase of the work: engaging with and supporting the profession; model field projects; historical, methodological and scientific research; production and dissemination of key texts and resources; and education and training.
