2017 Curatorial Exchange programme: “Reaching Out”
Applications for the 6th edition of the EUNIC internship programme for young Russian curators are open from 6 April 2017 to 12 May 2017.
This programme, organized by the members of EUNIC Russia, aims at helping young Russian curators acquire experience, share knowledge and create networks whilst working in leading European cultural institutions. After the internship, the selected curators will develop their own independent curatorial projects, which are to be presented at the final event. The best project will be implemented with financial support from EUNIC (3.000€).
The topic for 2017 is “Reaching Out”. The main idea is to represent the curatorial statement further than usual representation. The aim is to move away from traditional institutions and create a broader output to a wider audience (including people with special needs and abilities), whereas art is introduced in unbounded ways and extensively spread in the unique fringe areas. A message suggests any form of media and occupies any kind of space, producing response, opinion or coexistence. The key point is to search, or invent, new instruments to collaborate with public areas and an unlimited number of individuals.
