Smack Mellon Call for emerging curators. Deadline: Sept. 1, 2016

Proposals are accepted annually from Emerging Curators for the Emerging Artists Summer Exhibition. The Emerging Artists Summer Exhibition will be curated by a selected Emerging Curator and will be made up of Emerging Artists. An Emerging Curator is defined as an independent curator who is beginning their career as a curator. Proposal must show history of at least 3 prior curatorial projects successfully presented to a public audience.

The selected curator’s exhibition theme will be announced in the open call process for the emerging artists program. The theme should be relevant to political, social or environmental issues. Curators must select 50% of their artists from the pool of emerging artists. The exhibitions must include at least 60% women artists, as part of Smack Mellon’s mission to support women artists.

Smack Mellon provides curators a stipend and a budget for artists’ stipends. The curator is encouraged to stop by the gallery during gallery hours to look at the space in order to tailor their proposal to the space.

Smack Mellon can provide audio and visual equipment such as projectors and flat screen monitors as well as technical support for installing complex projects.

The curator should realize that we expect a hands-on approach at the gallery. The curator is expected to be in NYC to review all submissions. The curator is expected to be at the gallery throughout the installation and the curator and artists involved in the exhibition are responsible for the execution and installation of the artwork. The curator should clarify to all artists when invited to participate that they are responsible for delivering their work to the gallery, installing and de-installing their work. Smack Mellon does not have a full time staff of preparators. Smack Mellon will hire an installer for 2 days to help with general installation. Smack Mellon gallery staff can assist in installation of work requiring a lift or special mounting. Our gallery staff may also assist artists with installation of other complicated projects but will not be involved in helping the artist to build their work on site. Our technical staff will install all of the equipment (projectors, monitors etc.) belonging to Smack Mellon. It will be the artist’s responsibility to install and maintain any equipment that belongs to the artist.

Specifics about the installation of artwork and about the equipment that Smack Mellon is able to provide will be discussed after the initial proposal has been reviewed and accepted as a proposal under consideration.

Curators do not have to propose a completed show but must submit the following:

______________________

1. Documentation of past exhibitions
(Up to 20 still images and/or a maximum of 3 three-minute videos of past exhibitions.)

2. Resume

3. Curator’s Statement about past exhibitions

4. Curatorial Proposal for new exhibition
(A list of artists under consideration can also be included.)

5. Work Samples
(Curators should also include images of the artists’ work to be included in the exhibition. If new work will be created for the exhibition, send images of their past work. A maximum of 20 still images can be submitted. )

Comisart for Emerging Curators. Deadline: Sept. 23, 2016

Call for Applications, 2016

Comisart is a call for applications aimed at art curators under 40 years of age, with Spanish nationality or resident in Spain, who have previously curated at least three exhibitions. Any curators who already have well-established careers will not be accepted.

The three curators selected will receive a grant of 6,000 euros and will benefit from the resources and advice of the exhibitions team from the “la Caixa” Foundation.

Comisart is a two-yearly programme involving three exhibition projects based on items from the “la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection and the MACBA collections. We are committed to innovative projects, both in terms of interpretations and reflections and also regarding the creative approach and forms used.

The exhibitions will be included in the annual programming of CaixaForum Barcelona and there is also the possibility of them becoming travelling exhibitions, as well as potential collaborations with other institutions. The exhibitions may also include work by young artists embarking on their careers as a complement to items from the “la Caixa” Collection, provided these works already exist and do not form part of another institution’s collection.

Each project will be developed over a period of four months. During the first month, curators will have access to the Collection and to the teams from the “la Caixa” Foundation and MACBA in order to define the project, while all the work to prepare the exhibition will be carried out in the following three months.

KEY DATES

No projects or additional documentation can be presented outside the deadlines established in the rules of the call for applications unless the organisation announces an extension of the deadline specified in these rules.
