Call for applications – ICI Curatorial Intensive in Marrakech, Morocco
Independent Curators International (ICI), in collaboration with Dar al-Ma’mûn, presents the inaugural Curatorial Intensive in Marrakech, Morocco.
Following ICI’s Curatorial Intensive in Addis Ababa with the Zoma Contemporary Art Center (ZCAC) in 2014, and in Johannesburg with The Bag Factory Artists’ Studios in 2013, ICI continues its commitment to supporting curatorial training in Africa, and to developing regional networks, with the Curatorial Intensive in Marrakech. The program will focus on the cultural landscape of West Africa and the Maghreb while also exploring the role of curators working for both local and international audiences. The seminars of this program will be conducted mostly in English, but also in Arabic and French. Translation will be available when necessary, but working proficiency in English is essential and familiarity with more than one language is recommended.
The Curatorial Intensive is designed to immerse participants in a rigorous schedule of seminars, conversations, and presentations that support the process of developing an idea for an exhibition or program into a full proposal. It will bring together emerging curators from the Maghreb and around the world for the opportunity to exchange ideas, develop their curatorial projects, and consider the local context and artistic production.
Application deadline: March 20, 2015
