Open call for Re-Directing: East Curatorial Seminar and Residency 'Hospitality ' (Poland)
Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art invites professionals such as curators, organisers, researchers and art managers to apply for a one-month-long residency.
Re-Directing: East Curatorial Residency is a platform for carrying out research and meetings between curators, representatives of the most interesting grass-root initiatives, and people in charge of organising artistic events from all over the world. It was launched in 2013, starting with the U–jazdowski residency programme. The notion of "re-directing" refers here to a need to facilitate collaborations between art initiatives which due to geopolitical conditions have not had many opportunities to collaborate thus far.
The participants are expected to share their experience and understanding of respective artistic and socio-political contexts, as well as to prepare themselves for participation in this year's exploration of the topic: "hospitality."
Re–Directing: East Curatorial Residency is a peer-learning workshop, a curatorial seminar, an extended site exploration, and a research opportunity for groups of four to six individuals together with the U–jazdowski team and local participants. This curatorial residency is a platform for developing a possible working collaboration with the U–jazdowski and other parties concerned in the years to come.
What is covered?
–Individual living space connected with working space
–A grant of 4000 PLN / approx. 1000 USD
–Reimbursement of travel costs
–Organising a customised programme of lectures, presentations and study visits in and outside Warsaw
–Organising the final seminar including participants’ presentations created collaboratively during the residency
Deadline: 25 February 2018
