Open call for curatorial projects!

This is an open call for all interested professionals to state their interest in working out a concrete curatorial project! The curator or the team of curators will be selected according the following procedure:

  • → Respond to the open call and state your interest in the project – via no more than 2 pages statement, including name and contact details;
  • → Invitation to a short list of 3-5 statements of interest to converse with the organizers and to develop a more elaborate curatorial project within the announced thematic framework;
  • → Selection of a curatorial project.

 

The project selected by ICA-Sofia will respect the listed modules and will work out themes that are relevant for the development of Bulgarian art in the last 25-30 years, as well as for the role played by the ICA-Sofia in this multifaceted process. The project will rely on the free choice of works and artists, events and sub-themes, unrestricted by the practice of the ICA-Sofia though integral for the history of contemporary art in Bulgaria as part of the world at large.

The selected project will be realized as a collaboration between the curator (team of curators), with the support of ICA-Sofia and in partnership with the hosting space (in the process of TBD). The planned realization period of time is – ongoing program of events; exhibition – fall of 2020.

 

 → Statements of interest will be accepted in electronic form until 6 pm on Monday, February 10th, 2020 at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
