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.
