Call for applications – CPR 2017: The Baltic Sea, Denmark, Estonia, Norway and Sweden

Applications are due March 15, 2017

The Curatorial Program for Research (CPR) is the core facilitator of an international network of curators, artists and institutions. Through open calls and full research scholarships, CPR has three goals: first, to enable a direct, in situ communication between international curators and local artists. Secondly, to promote equal access to knowledge. And third, to act as a platform for promotion and practice for the participating curators and hosts.

With a nomadic and intensive format, CPR promotes dialogue between international curators and local artistic scenes. The program was created by curators and for curators, and is a non-profit international organization based in the US, with satellite locations in more than 15 cities throughout the world.

The Curatorial Program for Research (CPR) is pleased to announce its open call for curators for CPR 2017: The Baltic Sea, visiting cities across Denmark, Estonia, Norway and Sweden. CPR’s fifth fully-funded research program will take place from September 24 – October 18, 2017. Hosted by local institutions and independent curators, the program gathers a cohort of up to eight curators, and offers daily visits to artist studios and local arts institutions, complemented by readings about local socio-political history, arts, and culture. Following the trip, each curator is asked to submit a proposal for a project in his/her home city, and one winning proposal will be awarded a production grant.

For application guidelines and further information, please visit Both independent curators and those with institutional affiliations may apply; only applicants with 2+ years of professional experience will be considered.
