Expired: Open Call – Young Curators Program 2020

22.01.20 | Opslagstavle

Deadline February 17th

Gether Contemporary is pleased to announce an open call for exhibition proposals by Scandinavian and international curators under 30 years of age. We encourage curators as well as curatorial duos and collectives at the beginning of their careers to apply with a thoughtful project demonstrating a clear curatorial vision and an original concept before Monday 17th February at midnight.

The exhibition concept should be either a solo presentation or a presentation of up to 4 artists all under 30 years of age. We welcome cutting-edge proposals which try to push the boundaries and question positions while keeping in mind the context of an exhibition in a commercial gallery.

The jury will announce the selected project during the first week of March. The selected curator(s) will receive a competition prize of 5.000,00 DKK. An exhibition budget will be made available to realise the project.

The curator will discuss the projects concrete realization with the gallery and jury member Irene Campolmi to develop a production plan for the upcoming months. The opening of the exhibition is expected to take place within the first two weeks of June 2020 at Gether Contemporary, Copenhagen.

Curators will be responsible for managing the budget assigned, even though they won’t receive the full amount. The budget allowance will not cover the production of a new work and thus we strongly recommend the curators to work with existing works.

The committee will assign the price according to these criteria: 25% originality of the concept; 25% selection of emerging artists; 25% concrete budget plan and schedule for the realization of the exhibition; 25% narrative of the exhibition flow.

We encourage curators to submit a tentative budget along with a realisation plan for the show.

Irene Campolmi (Independent curator)
Marianne Torp (Senior Curator, SMK)
Sara Lysgaard (Collector of young contemporary art)
Sophus Gether (Owner of Gether Contemporary)
