THE CURATORIAL PROGRAM FOR RESEARCH (CPR) is the core facilitator of an international network of curators, artists and institutions. Through open calls and full research scholarships, CPR has three goals: first, to enable a direct, in situ communication between international curators and local artists. Secondly, to promote equal access to knowledge. And third, to act as a platform for promotion and practice for the participating curators and hosts.
With a nomadic and intensive format, CPR promotes dialogue between international curators and local artistic scenes. The program was created by curators and for curators, and is a non-profit international organization based in Indianapolis, USA, with satellite locations in more than 12 cities throughout the world. Each satellite city develops its activities through partnerships with local institutions, designating a host curator for each case. CPR draws up an academic program, with specialized readings about art history and general knowledge, together with visits to museums and artist studios, and discussions with scholars and experts.
