Open call for curatorial projects! Retrospective exhibition 25 Years ICA-Sofia

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.

“25 revolutions (and 5 themes) later” is a project for an exhibition and parallel program of events to mark the 25th anniversary since the founding of ICA-Sofia in June 1995. ICA-Sofia is one of the most active and longest existing art NGOs in Bulgaria. Integrally woven into the development of Bulgarian art in the last decades, and instrumental for the opening up and the positioning of the Bulgarian art scene in the world, ICA-Sofia follows a vision that this project will present in 5 modules, one of which is the exhibition:

  • Democratization of the form and the language of visual arts;

  • Art and public space; own place in a shared world;

  • Education – theoretical and practical; permanent self-upgrade in art;

  • Contemporary art is The Cultural Heritage of the Future!

 

The “25 revolutions (and 5 themes) later” project is realized with the financial support from the “Culture’2020” Program of the Sofia Municipality.
