Alternative Space Loop is looking for independent curators to program and realize contemporary art exhibitions that open up new formal and discursive possibilities for art shows. This new initiative is rooted in our belief that independent curators are cultural activists able to offer new perspectives for the art world, unaffiliated as they are to specific institutions or organizations. We seek to offer support to bold and innovative curatorial projects that explore the public value of contemporary art exhibitions and redefine the social role of the curator. We look forward to applications from independent curators eager to open up a new art discourse.
*Please note that this call for independent curators is separate from the call for artists (support for solo exhibitions). Applications to curate the applicant’s own solo show will not be considered for review.
