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 January 27-28, 2011 at the UP Vargas Museum. Now on its second year, 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 workshop is geared towards the JENESYS Program for Curators in developing curatorial resources in the region.
Deadline for proposal is on 15 January 2011 and may be e-mailed to email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com under the reference “Curatorial Development Program.”
