KHOJ will host a series of residencies for young curators, as part of a four-year Curatorship Programme conceptualized by India Foundation for the Arts (IFA) in collaboration with select institutions across the country. As a nodal centre facilitating curatorial practice in the visual arts, KHOJ provides a model of practice-based training for curators. The selected resident curators benefit from the support and network of art practitioners that are associated with KHOJ. The first of its kind residency aims to develop a training ground for emerging curators who will engage with various modes of artistic practice as well as be actively involved in critical writing.
H+F Curatorial Grant
The "H+F Curatorial Grant" is an ambitious and original initiative which will allow the FRAC Nord--Pas de Calais (Dunkirk/France) in close partnership with the de Appel art centre (Amsterdam/The Netherlands), the private collector Han Nefkens (H+F Collection) and Tomorrow Books Studio/Jan van Eyck Academy (Maastricht/The Netherlands), to give different young international curators the opportunity to make exhibition projects based on the Frac collection. This grant offers emerging art curators a unique infrastructure and environment with free access to a research and documentation centre as well as to one of the best French collections of contemporary art. The selected person will become part of the FRAC's team as an assistant curator, coordinating local, national and international exhibition-projects. She / he will receive in exchange a grant for 12 months that will help finance her/his living and travel expenses.
The Curatorial Fellowship is designed to immerse young curators of African descent in a rigorous professional training program that will lead them through the conceptual and vocational components of working in the curatorial field. The schedule will consist of three key aspects: organizational structure at MoCADA, professional development in the field, and curating an exhibition.
Curatorial Proposals for Exhibitions
ABC No Rio was founded by visual artists committed to political and social engagement and we retain these values to the present. We are known internationally as a venue for oppositional culture. We prefer collaborative efforts and group shows based on theme, and we embrace work with strong social and political content. Our goal is to present interesting, vital, and exciting exhibitions and to provide a forum for artists who may not be heard elsewhere, that have rejected or been rejected by the mainstream art-world. Modest amounts of funding are available for exhibition expenses.
Curatorial Research Grant
Etant donnÃ©s: The French-American Fund for Contemporary Art offers Curatorial Research Grants supporting the professional development of American curators by offering them extended stays of up to three months in France for research projects in the field of contemporary art. Ultimately the grants are intended to highlight and further current artistic interactions between France and the United States, facilitating the discovery of new talents and reinforcing interest in established contemporary artists, as well as encouraging the exploration of France's cultural resources. Grants will consist of a $2,500 stipend per month and travel expenses covered up to a maximum of $2,500 total. Upon completing their research, all recipients will be required to write detailed descriptions documenting how their use of the grant fulfilled the program's goals. Ideally, their specific research will translate to tangible results, such as a publication or exhibition. Recipients must agree to mention the support of Etant donnÃ©s: The French-American Fund for Contemporary Art, Curatorial Research Grants Program and other funding sources indicated by the Fund, on all communication materials regarding the research and its outcomes. Grant recipients planning a three-month stay are given the opportunity to reserve housing at the CitÃ© Internationale des arts in Paris. No other housing opportunities are offered in advance, the grants being nonresidential. Curators are expected to make their own travel and housing arrangements, although the Fund's staff is available to advise them by suggesting contacts and providing other planning assistance.
