Curators' Network - a convention of international curators
You are invited to the fourth – and the first to take place in Poland – session in the series Curators’ Network, which will take place at MOCAK from 5 to 8 December. Nineteen curators from thirteen countries will share their knowledge and experience. All artists selected to participate in the project are welcome to participate in the session, as is anyone who wants to take part.
The chief objective of the project Curators’ Network is the popularisation of the work of young artists beyond their home countries as well as the consolidation and promotion of international co-operation between both curators and art institutions all over Europe.
The Polish edition of Curators’ Network comprises two parts:
- The first part istargeted solely at the artists chosen by the jury via an open selection process. It will take place from 5 to 7 December 2012 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow. Each artist will participate in a three-day portfolio review, during which s/he will also have individual meetings with nineteen curators from thirteen countries.
- The second part, directed at the audience, will take place on 8 December 2012. From 11 am until 6 pm, in the building of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow a ‘showroom’ will be open to the public, with works on display of the artists who have been selected for the project. Please mention ‘Curators’ Network’ to gain access.
- Between 2 pm and 4 pm at the BAL club there will be a 10-minute Tête à Tête. The event provides a chance for anyone interested in art or culture to swap ideas with a professional curator in a short face-to-face individual encounter. Entry free, but prior booking required by contacting: firstname.lastname@example.org. The curators will propose the topics for discussion, but the participants can make their own suggestions. The list of topics can be found on: www.curators-network.eu/krakow. All the discussions will be conducted in English.
