Michelle Kasprzak's views on contemporary art curating

Opportunity: Zabludowicz Collection Curatorial Open

Posted by Michelle Kasprzak • Wednesday, October 27. 2010 • Category: Jobs & Opportunities

The Zabludowicz Collection Curatorial Open is a new opportunity for independent curators and arts professionals. As its name suggests, the Open invites professionals from creative fields to propose ideas for exhibitions and projects to be produced in July and August 2011, as part of the Zabludowicz Collection’s programme at 176 Prince of Wales Road, one of London’s foremost spaces for contemporary art.

The first stage of proposals asks applicants to familiarise themselves with the Collection’s ethos and holdings by using online resources available on the Collection’s website and to propose a project to be realised during the six weeks between 7 July – 14 August 2011, with an accompanying publication and programme of events.

A shortlist of ten projects will be selected in January 2011 by a panel composed of Lisa Le Feuvre, James Lingwood, Mark Rappolt and Anita Zabludowicz. Shortlisted candidates will then be invited to develop their proposals. In February 2011, up to four curators will be invited to realise their projects at 176 Prince of Wales Road in July-August 2011.

To be eligible, entrants must have previously realised at least two exhibitions or projects with contemporary artists or art, which were open to the public, and must be over 21 years of age. They can be from any creative background; in fact we are keen to encourage cross-disciplinary proposals and new ways of approaching the Zabludowicz Collection. Applicants can find more information, and download the application pack, on the Zabludowicz Collection website.
