Call for applications – ICI Curatorial Intensive in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
This May, Independent Curators International (ICI), in collaboration with Zoma Contemporary Art Center (ZCAC), produces the Curatorial Intensive in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. This one-week professional development program offers curators the opportunity to explore art production and international connections currently developing in Ethiopia, while discussing among colleagues, the concepts, logistics, and challenges of organizing exhibitions globally. Sessions will focus on topics that range from the pragmatics of developing a program to building infrastructure and platforms for the support of artistic production.
This program marks the second Curatorial Intensive in Africa. The Curatorial Intensive is designed to immerse participants in a rigorous schedule of seminars and presentations that support the process of developing an idea into a full exhibition or program proposal. The Curatorial Intensive is targeted toward self-motivated individuals—working independently or in institutions—who would benefit from a week of intensive discussions around the issues and questions that arise for curators today. The program fosters horizontal learning and promotes the development of an international network of collaboration.
Application deadline: March 10, 2014
