Call for applications – Curator in Residence 2019, Banff International Curatorial Institute, Alberta, Canada

Application Deadline : September 05, 2018

This residency will provide time and space for mid-career curators to develop an exhibition or project and conduct research while engaging with artists-in-residence and programs in Visual Arts. This residency is suited to curators focused on the development of a substantial project resulting in an external public exhibition or curatorial event.

Curators are encouraged to meet with artists-in-residence to extend their networks, share their research in the form of a presentation or workshop, and engage with curatorial and artistic staff at Banff Centre in the development of their external project.

Residencies offer structured programs where artists, curators, and other arts professionals come together to create work and discuss pertinent themes in contemporary artistic practice. Scheduled programming is designed to allow for self-directed research and project development, and time to collaborate with the creative community at Banff Centre.

Participants will benefit from connecting with visiting curators, faculty, and artists, and through interaction with various Visual Arts residency programs and other arts programs across campus.

This program requires a full time commitment and variable dates will not be considered. Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed.

This program is open to curators exploring pertinent topics within visual arts and art criticism.
