Call for applications – Call for Curatorial Residents 2014-15, 221A, Vancouver, Canada
221A is an artist-run centre located in Vancouver, Canada with a mandate to explore design within contemporary art. Projects are presented in the form of exhibitions, talks, publications and special projects that address design in its widest sense, which may encompass graphics, objects, architecture, or, more broadly, social codes and conventions.
221A is seeking proposals from practicing artists, designers, architects, academics and/or curators, including curatorial collectives, for the 2014-15 Curatorial Residency Program. Started in 2010, the Curatorial Residencies program was implemented to diversify our curatorial approach to our mandate. Residents take on the critical function of working both inside and outside of the organization, offering their experience and ideas towards the continued development of the organization.
Projects may include exhibitions, performances, publications, talks or special projects. Proposals must discuss a viewpoint, theory or approach that the project hopes to foster in relation to the organization’s mandate.
Deadline, Monday, February 3, 2014 no later than 11:59pm PST
