Call for Proposals
The Japan Foundation and the University of the Philippines Vargas Museum are accepting proposals for curatorial projects for a workshop on curating contemporary art from November 24 to 25, 2009 at the UP Vargas Museum. The project aims to provide a platform for interaction among young curators, their peers, and established practitioners in the field.
The curatorial proposal of 500-800 words should include a working title; a brief explanation of the project, with reference to artists, space, and relevant logistical details; and conceptual issues or theoretical reflections. Only individuals 35 years old and below may submit. After the proposals are selected, the proponents will be advised to write a more detailed essay for the workshop.
This initiative is set against the broader interests of the Jenesys Program for Art Curators, which seeks to develop curatorial resources in the region.
Deadline for proposal is on November 16, 2009 and may be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org under the reference “Curatorial Development Program.”
