Michelle Kasprzak's views on contemporary art curating

Opportunity: Art writing residency at 49 Nord 6 Est Frac Lorraine

Posted by Michelle Kasprzak • Monday, January 11. 2010 • Category: Jobs & Opportunities
49 Nord 6 Est Frac Lorraine takes a special interest in the various forms of contemporary writing and how they relate to the visual arts. Supporting art criticism and thinking about art is one of the keys projects at the new building: a 30 m2 studio flat has been converted to accommodate art critics of every nationality!
This residence offers them an opportunity to carry on with their current research, develop their thoughts on some topic in connection with the collection, or experiment with new forms of writing.

The Art critic will be meeting the players in the Saarlorlux regions (institutions, artists, association) as listed quite independently by Frac Lorraine.
He will lead the thinking process behind the Frac Lorraine collection and notably with regard to the direction towards acquisitions policy.
This reflection may be subjected to restitution in the form of a text or article (to be defined).

The Art critic will also give thought to the drafting of a possible scenario for an exhibition based on the Frac Lorraine collection.
Frac Lorraine shall make available to the Art critic the assistance of Frac personnel involved in the project and the equipment at their disposal (office, computer, telephone, car…), subject to availability.

The Art critic may be put in touch with various partner institutions or schools of Art / Architecture in the SaarLorLux region, in certain cases for the purpose of holding meetings on the current situation of the Austrian art scene and/or for the needs of his own personal research. Under no circumstances may the organisation of such meetings interfere with the period of residence.

A residence allowance of 3000 euros will be paid for the period in residence ( minimum 2 months).
