Netherlands | de Appel curatorial programme | open call

Initiated in 1994, the Curatorial Programme of de Appel arts centre aims to offer young curators a condensed package of experiences and skills that can be seen as instruments to enhance the development of their professional career.

The ten-month long Curatorial Programme exists in its current form since 2006, with a reshaped curriculum and an extended tutorial team. It encompasses a dense array of seminars, workshops, excursions (including a three-week research trip to a destination outside Western Europe), practice-related assignments and encounters with artists and art professionals.

The programme pays attention to the history of exhibition-making, diverse curatorial practices, institution building and project management. The programme is characterized by a specific focus on ´curating in the expanded field´, which is investigated through the polarity between ‘free-lance ’ and ‘institutional’ curating and the notion ‘context-responsive’ curating.

The deadline for the Curatorial Programme 2013-2014 is 14 January 2013. 

The Curatorial Programme 2013-2014 commences mid August 2013 and will run through June 2014 (duration approx. ten months, exact dates to be announced).

On the basis of the submitted documents twelve candidates will be short-listed. These candidates will be invited to come to Amsterdam in the third week of March for an interview with an international jury, who will select the final six participants of the Curatorial Programme 2013-2014.
