Cubitt’s 9th Curatorial Bursary
Deadline: September 30, 2013

Cubitt is an independent charitable organisation which consists of a public gallery providing unique development opportunities for curators, a large-scale grassroots education and community programme and the provision of affordable artists studios in central London. Since its founding in 1991, Cubitt has run as a co-operative led by 32 practicing artists. This is a diverse community of artists working in different media and at various stages in their careers.

Cubitt’s reputation is upheld through the success and development of Cubitt’s 18 month Curatorial Bursary, the only one of its kind in UK. The bursary is a pioneering curatorial model that is highlighted as one of the major platforms for curatorial development in Europe and is key to the success and rich exhibition history of the organisation.

The bursary holder will develop an exhibitions and events programme at Cubitt Gallery across a fixed period of 18 months, building on our strong reputation for innovative and challenging curating. For the last two decades, Cubitt has introduced emerging or overlooked artistic talent to a diverse audience and provided an important platform for artists working in London, the UK and abroad.
