Application Call: A Temporary School for Emergent Curators!!!

Sàn Art is very pleased to announce 10 subsidized places on a month-long school for emergent curators. Applicants must be nationals of a Southeast Asian country.

Contemporary curatorial practices run a range of activities in exhibition-making, programming, and discursive projects within an expanding field of publishing. Uncommon Pursuits explores this diversity with a focus on critical questions of working outwards from the perspective of the Global South. Participants also gain introductory training in primary research methodologies.

Successful applicants will have demonstrated a great capacity to benefit from the learning experiences that Uncommon Pursuits offers. Minimum curatorial experience is required, the potential to hone and develop a curatorial proposal is valued.

Participants are required to submit a finalized curatorial proposal within 8 weeks of completion. These proposals will be used in a planned publication about Uncommon Pursuits. Further, Sàn Art will maintain a dialogue with all participants and aim to support the realisation of these proposals in the near future.
