Aarhus Center for Visual Art (Aarhus Billedkunstcenter, AaBKC) invites international curators of contemporary visual art to apply to AaBKC Residency’s Spring 2018 program.
The aim of AaBKC Residency is to introduce international artists and curators to the visual arts scene in Aarhus, the second largest city in Denmark.
The AaBKC Residency facilitates networking as a mode of curatorial research. AaBKC will provide living accommodations, work space, administrative support, discounted meals, bicycle access, and a 10,000 DKK stipend. Emerging and established curators of contemporary visual culture are encouraged to apply.
AaBKC Residency’s Spring 2018 program invites one international curator to live and work in Aarhus from April 30 – June 22, 2018, where s/he will have an opportunity to meet local artists and arts professionals, visit artist studios and exhibition spaces, and participate in networking meetings and cultural events. By focusing on networking, AaBKC Residency facilitates short- and long-term professional development, allowing curators to broaden their knowledge base, develop new and meaningful professional contacts and relationships, create future work opportunities, refine their networking skills, and build other vital professional capacities.
