The Center for Contemporary Arts is publishing an open call for collaboration in the AIR Celeia 2022 program, which will enable the selected curator to carry out an in-depth research of the visual art produced in Slovenia and to prepare a curatorial project that will be realized in the Center for Contemporary Arts in 2023.
The AIR CELEIA program is conceived on the basis of a reciprocal model that enables the residential curator to become acquainted with, get in contact with, exchange experiences with, and get involved in the local artistic community, offering at the same time local artists the possibility of establishing new connections and forms of collaboration.
During two-month residential stay, the selected curator will be expected to prepare a concept for the curatorial project which must include Slovenian artists (dual presentation of Slovenian and foreign artists). The Center for Contemporary Arts will arrange for the curator to connect with the city, to become well acquainted with the local artistic community and will offer all the necessary support in the realization of the curatorial project.
The selected curator will be offered a two-month stay in our residential flat (which is located in the city center in the immediate vicinity of the Center for Contemporary Arts and the local artistic district; the residential flat includes a kitchen, a studio, a bedroom, a bathroom and Internet), a grant of € 600 per month and a royalty payment of € 1000 after the realization of the curatorial project.
In order to apply, please send the following documents:
– Personal data (name, surname, date of birth)
– Contact details (address, telephone and email)
– Letter of motivation
– Curatorial statement
– Description of selected curatorial projects
Please send applications to the following email:
APPLICATION DEADLINE: February 16, 2022
The selected curator will be informed of the decision by the end of March 2022. The exact term of the stay within the planned time framework will be decided together with the selected curator, while the exact term of the presentation of the curatorial project in 2023 will be determined subsequently.
