Contemporary art curating news and views from Michelle Kasprzak and team

Opportunity: Hayward Curatorial Open, 2014

Posted by Michelle Kasprzak • Sunday, November 24. 2013 • Category: Jobs & Opportunities

Call for proposals

Hayward Touring invites proposals for an exhibition of contemporary art to be shown in four UK galleries in 2014/15. You don’t have to be a professional curator or exhibition-maker to submit an idea. We welcome suggestions for innovative projects from artists, writers and imaginative thinkers in all walks of life, as well as from people working in galleries and museums. Your proposal might be for an exhibition that re-invents the way we think about art; it might be a new and surprising take on a well-worn subject; there may be a theme or tendency in contemporary art and visual culture that you think deserves to be explored in new ways; or a theme that you have always thought would make a great exhibition.

The exhibition will tour to:
BALTIC’s project space at BALTIC 39, Newcastle upon Tyne;
the Bluecoat, Liverpool;
The Gallery at Norwich University of the Arts;
and one further venue in the UK, to be announced shortly.

The successful applicant will receive an honorarium of £6,000 and a budget for research and travel. S/he will work in collaboration with Hayward Touring and the participating galleries on an exhibition of around 350 square metres, to open in September 2014. The exhibition budget will allow for some international loans and a publication. The selection panel will include the Director, Hayward Gallery, the Senior Curator of Hayward Touring and curators from the participating galleries.

Application deadline: 9am, Monday 6 January 2014
