The Alley Fellowship is a two-month rotating exhibition and lecture fellowship open to emerging, young, progressive artists in Los Angeles. The Fellowship will be awarded to the six artists who best embody the spirit of transdisciplinary creative exploration which RCH and A+D aim to promote. The selected fellows will receive both logistic, curatorial and financial support to implement a design installation within the Alley Gallery at A+D. Each participant will then present their installation, their thoughts, process and creative viewpoints with a lecture at Rios Clementi Hale. The Fellows will be selected by a seven-member jury consisting of artists, designers, and architects from the A+D family and Rios Clementi Hale Studios.

The Alley Fellowship was established as a partnership between Rios Clementi Hale Studios and A+D Architecture and Design Museum. This partnership rose organically out of each organization’s desire to provide a platform from which to support emerging cross-disciplinary artists. The Alley Gallery, recently constructed within the museum,  provides a fresh space for emerging artists to contribute their voice to the narrative.
