3rd edition 2010/2011

FRAC Nord – Pas de Calais (F), de Appel arts centre (NL), H + F Curatorial Grant

The 'H+F Curatorial Grant' is an ambitious and original initiative which allows the FRAC Nord–Pas de Calais (Dunkirk/France) in close partnership with the private collector Han Nefkens (H+F Collection) and the de Appel arts centre (Amsterdam/NL), to give young international curators the opportunity to participate in the development of exhibition projects based on the collection of FRAC Nord-Pas-de- Calais.

This grant, which was launched in 2007, offers emerging art curators a unique infrastructure and environment with free access to a research and documentation centre as well as to one of the best French collections of contemporary art. The FRAC acts as the first intermediary for these future professionals of contemporary art by helping them to develop and implement their projects.

A panel composed of Han Nefkens (H+F Collection), Ann Demeester (Director of de Appel) and Hilde Teerlinck (Director of the FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais) will select the new candidate. The selected person will become part of the FRAC's team as an assistant curator, coordinating local, national and international exhibition-projects. She / he will receive in exchange a grant for 12 months (May 2010>May 2011) that will help finance her/his living and travel expenses.

An excellent knowledge of English is required, knowledge of French would be helpful.

The candidate will have to install her/himself in Dunkirk for the mentioned period.

This project has been made possible thanks to the generous support of Han Nefkens (journalist, writer and art collector), which enables the FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais to reinforce the development of a strong and active policy of patronage around its activities. From 2008 onwards the application process is open for former students of de Appel Curatorial Programme and all aspiring young curators who wish to enhance their expertise and further develop their skills and agilities in project management.

Pick 'N Mix - December 2009

Posted by Michelle Kasprzak • Friday, December 11. 2009 • Category: Pick 'N Mix
Welcome to the last Pick 'N Mix of 2009!

- Here is yet another art world power list, listing several curators, many of whom are "household names" of a sort (Birnbaum, Bonami, Obrist, etc). We're a society obsessed with lists and awards it seems!

- Andy Warhol was all over the news this past month, and one of the major news items referred back to a situation in 1990 involving well-known and respected curator Pontus Hulten. According to reports, some of Warhol's famous Brillo boxes were replicated after the artist's death and passed off as originals, which has resulted in a sticky situation for everyone involved. The details, including some information on Hulten's role in the story, is available at More potential Warhol fakes were discovered, in London-based art dealer Anthony d'Offay's collection, prompting Tate Modern Director Sir Nicholas Serota to hold off on buying the self-portrait on the taxpayer's dime. Full coverage at the Guardian. Of course, it is not hard to imagine that our late Uncle Andy would have had a huge laugh about the complications surrounding a desire for verified authenticity.

- While we're thinking about money, value, and authenticity, here's a good read: The British Council has been holding lectures by leading thinkers such as Dambisa Moyo, Amartya Sen, Muhammad Yunus, and others. In early November Benjamin Barber gave a lecture on art, money and democratic change and it's available to watch or read at the British Council website.

- Here's a handy research tip: If you use Twitter, send a tweet with your research interests to Mute Magazine, and they'll dig up something relevant for you from their archives! I asked them for articles on curating and public art, and was promptly sent links to two great articles: Curating Self-Consciously, and Airing Dirty Laundry in Public Art. Give it a try!

- Independent Curators International (iCI) has a series of lectures planned that looks terrific. Sunday, December 13th Ana Paula Cohen is speaking at the New Museum in New York, USA. Further details here. If you are in the New York area, sign up to their email list to get information on future talks.

- Last but not least, please consider helping a researcher out and filling in this questionnaire for curators developed by Lisa Ladner. I'm sure the results will make for fascinating reading.

Happy holidays!

Questions: A Survey by Lisa Ladner

Posted by Michelle Kasprzak • Friday, December 11. 2009 • Category: Questions & Conversations

Swiss researcher and consultant Lisa Ladner approached me to assist in the distribution of this fascinating survey for curators. She has been working as a cultural producer and independent curator in Puerto Rico, and with her international experience she found interesting discrepancies in how institutions around the globe work to support curators. She would like you, as a curator, to answer the questionnaire below and return the answers to her as soon as possible to info -at-, so that she can learn from your experience and share the results not only with her Puerto Rican colleagues but with us, too.

The questionnaire is below, please copy and paste it into a new email and send it directly to Lisa: info -at-
Thanks for your help.

QUESTIONNAIRE / Please don't write what you think is good practice, but honestly describe the current practice!

5. Please describe the collaboration between the in-house curators and the guest curator. Does the in-house curator interfere with the project or just help in its realization?

6. How much help does the institution grant the guest curator (museum staff, technical assistants,...)? Can the guest curator use the same resources as the in-house curator?

7. Let's say a freelance/independent curator presents an idea with a cost estimate and the institution likes it very much. Does the institution now communicate the available budget for the exhibition and the curator adapts the project or must the curator first present an exact budget and then wait for the institution to see, if they can raise the money? Will the curator get paid for budgeting? Does the institution help the guest curator in the budgeting?

8. How many months prior to an exhibition does the institution communicate if it can be done or not (due to economic reasons)?

9. Does the guest curator get a contract and if so: at what moment in the project? Could you send me a sample or actual contract?

10. Does the guest curator only get paid if the exhibition takes place? What if the show is being cancelled because the institution couldn't raise the money?

11. Can the guest curator be asked to help raise money?

12. Does the institution cover all transportation and insurance costs for the artworks (round trip) including wrapping/crating? Or does it ask the artist to cover some of the costs?

13. Who looks for transportation/insurance/customs quotes: the institution or the artist?

14. Are artists being paid for having their work in an institutional show or are they asked to pay for it (for example with the argument that the work's value goes up by being exhibited)?

15. If an artist has to be present for the mounting or opening: does the institution pay for transportation/accommodations/meals? Does it also pay a compensation for the invested time?

16. Regarding the above questions: does it matter if the work comes from the artist, an art dealer/gallery or a collection/collector or from another institution or are they all being treated equally?

17. Do artists receive money to complete a work or is this only the case, if the work was commissioned?

18. Are artists being asked to come up for or provide exhibition equipment such as DVD players, headphones, loudspeakers, cables, beamers, monitors, computers or whatever is needed to exhibit their piece?

19. Does the institution set up a contract with the artist or makes him fill out just a standard form? At what moment? Please send samples or actual documents.

20. Do you ask the artists to provide professional high resolution photos of their work to be used for free in the catalogue?

21. Does your institution have a curatorial guideline/handbook such as Please provide.

22. Are proposals by in-house and freelance/independent curators being treated equally (for example: propose to director, then pass the exhibition committee, then being assigned an in-house curator/committee member to accompany the project)?

23. How many exhibitions does the institution do yearly (average)?

Appel: Un(e) commissaire d'exposition à Toulouse

Posted by Michelle Kasprzak • Wednesday, December 9. 2009 • Category: Jobs & Opportunities
Date limite de réception des projets en pdf : Vendredi 11 décembre 2009.

LE CONTEXTE — Sur l’initiative du projet Hypertexte et en partenariat étroit avec l’école des beaux-arts de Toulouse, un commissaire est invité à développer un projet d’exposition entre janvier et août 2010 à Toulouse.

Il aura en charge la conception, la coordination, les relations avec les artistes, la production, le montage et le démontage de l’exposition. Le commissaire invité travaillera en lien direct avec l’équipe du projet Hypertexte qui assure l’organisation générale de cette invitation. Il associera à sa recherche un groupe d’étudiants de l’école des beaux-arts qui l’accompagnera tout au long du projet. Deux monteurs d’exposition seront mis à disposition. Le commissaire proposera également une stratégie de communication et assurera la production de tous les textes et documents liés à l’exposition (dossier de presse, livret…). Il concevra enfin l’accueil des visiteurs dans l’exposition (en impliquant le groupe d’étudiants associé) et se rendra lui-même disponible pour un rendez-vous spécial avec le public.

LE PROJET — Sa dimension critique, la qualité, la singularité de sa recherche seront les principaux critères de sélection. aider la création — Depuis les années 80 au moins, avec l’apparition d’Harald Szeemann, de l’Agence pour le travail intellectuel à la demande et de son Musée des obsessions, la notion d’auteur s’applique au médium « exposition ». Si des formations, des bourses et des résidences existent ailleurs en France, ce n’est pas le cas à Toulouse. Cette invitation répond à un manque. Pour autant, elle s’appuie d’abord sur le désir de structures dédiées à la création contemporaine de partager une expérience et une ouverture sur d’autres conceptions de l’exposition.

Calendrier — Ouverture de l’appel : 17 novembre / 11 décembre 2009.
Date limite de réception des projets en pdf : Vendredi 11 décembre 2009.
Pré-sélection de quatre dossiers : Vendredi 18 décembre 2009.
Audition des candidats et sélection : Jeudi 7 janvier 2010.
Workshop d’une dizaine de jours avec les étudiants : Février / juin 2010.
