Virtual curatorial residency "SIX YEARS" > Open call
The platform SIX YEARS is a space of curatorial activities with an experimental vocation, questioning the writing and digital uses. This tool makes it possible to reflect on the renewal of curatorial practices (research in art, spaces of the exhibition, dynamic processes / workshops vs exhibition, role of the curator...).
SIX YEARS borrows its name from the seminal work of American writer, art critic, curator, feminist activist Lucy R. Lippard. Lippard (born April 14, 1937) is one of the first art historians to recognize the dematerialization at work in conceptual art.
The purpose of platform, coordinated by CEA - French association of curators, is to support and accompany contemporary curatorial practices. It takes the form of a « virtual » editorial residency, in individual or collective format, once a year, the first edition of which will begin on June 1st, 2019.
Each year, a guest curator will be able to invest the platform tool SIX YEARS to question the curatorial practice itself (projects turned to the online curating, a streaming radio, a cultural mediation device, creation of new media-transmedia, etc.).
During a 6-month residency, the selected curator or collective (by project) is invited to produce a curatorial form published on this platform (remote work).
The resident will focus on the fragility of an intangible space, considering cyberspace as an exhibition space, an in situ workplace, and ultimately a site where realities intersect.
The curator or group of curators selected will receive a total allocation of € 2,500 including fees, representation fees for works, etc. both for the residency time and the restitution period.
Deadline: 19 May 2019
