Opportunity: Young Curators Program & Internship Program at Canadian Centre for ArchitecturePosted by Michelle Kasprzak • Friday, March 11. 2011 • Category: Jobs & Opportunities
Curatorial practice as it emerged during the twentieth century is being extensively recast. The tremendous change in the status of the object, of culture, of the various disciplines, or information and education, implies an inevitable transformation of the curator’s role and competencies. A renewed interest for curatorial practice has recently emerged within the field of architecture.
The Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) is an international research centre and museum founded by Phyllis Lambert in 1979 on the conviction that architecture is a public concern. Based on its extensive Collection, exhibitions, programs, and research opportunities, the CCA is a leading voice in advancing knowledge, promoting public understanding, and widening thought and debate on architecture, its history, theory, practice, and role in society today.
The CCA is launching new curatorial opportunities: the Young Curators Program and the Power Corporation of Canada Curatorial Internships Program.
