Michelle Kasprzak's views on contemporary art curating

Opportunity: MACBA Study Center research residency

Posted by Michelle Kasprzak • Monday, January 11. 2010 • Category: Jobs & Opportunities
In order to foster research in the field of contemporary artistic practices, the Study Center of MACBA has established four work stations for guest researchers, addressed to academic researchers, artists and other specialists in contemporary art, which are available in residency periods of three to six months. To apply for a residency, please send the following documents to centredestudis -at-

- letter of application, stating the desired dates for starting and concluding the residency.

- description of the project you wish to pursue during their residency, demonstrating the appropriateness of the Study Center for your research (maximum 3,000 characters).

- academic and professional curriculum.

Consideration will also be given to any references and reports from academic or art institutions endorsing the candidate's project.

Residency periods can last between one and three months. Exceptionally, these periods be prolonged, should this be justified by the nature of the candidate and the project submitted. However, in no case may the residency period exceed six months.

By granting a residency, the Study Center guarantees the availability of a personal work station equipped with personal computer, Internet connection, office software and preferential access to databases, collections, catalogues and other resources at the Center, including assistance from Library staff.

Applications will be considered by members of the MACBA curatorial team, and applicants will receive a reply from the Center within a maximum of 60 days from the date the application is submitted.
