Uncommon Pursuits – A Temporary School for Emergent Curators in Southeast Asia: Call for Applications
Deadline: 16 Jun 2018
Time of school: 20 Jul – 10 Aug 2018

From the open call:

Sàn Art is very pleased to announce 10 subsidized places on a month-long school for emergent curators. Applicants must be nationals of a Southeast Asian country.

Contemporary curatorial practices run a range of activities in exhibition-making, programming, and discursive projects within an expanding field of publishing. Uncommon Pursuits explores this diversity with a focus on critical questions of working outwards from the perspective of the Global South. Participants also gain introductory training in primary research methodologies.

Uncommon Pursuits is open to Southeast Asian nationals who possess 1-2 years of organizational experience in the visual arts. Participants are required to be present in Ho Chi Minh City no later than 19 July and all sessions in the programme are mandatory.

Participants are required to submit a finalized curatorial proposal within 8 weeks of completion. These proposals will be used in a planned publication about Uncommon Pursuits. Further, Sàn Art will maintain a dialogue with all participants and aim to support the realisation of these proposals in the near future.

To apply, please prepare (in Vietnamese or English):

1. A recent CV (no images needed) and;
2. A 500 word statement outlining a curatorial project that demonstrates your interest in ‘contemporary art’, broadly construed, and how you think you and your project will benefit from this programme. This curatorial project will be developed over the course. Participants are required to submit a finalized curatorial proposal within 8 weeks of completion. These proposals will be used in a planned publication about Uncommon Pursuits. Further, Sàn Art will maintain a dialogue with all participants and aim to support the realisation of these proposals in the near future.

Please combine the above into 1 single file (doc, docx or pdf) and email it to [email protected] and titled Application: Uncommon Pursuits.

Successful candidates will be notified from 25 June 2018.

Should you have any inquiries please email us via [email protected] and titled Inquiry: Uncommon Pursuits.
