2022 VisArts Emerging Curator Program

2022 VisArts Emerging Curator Program

This Deadline Expired: Monday, November 1, 2021

Application Deadline:  November 1, 2021, midnight

VisArts invites applications from emerging curators to work with an experienced mentoring curator to develop and present an exhibition.

The VisArts Emerging Curator Program offers a unique opportunity for an emerging curator or artist with an interest in exhibition making or curating to work with an experienced mentoring curator to develop and present an exhibition and to assist in the presentation of the mentor’s exhibition. In an effort to develop expanded education programming/enhanced visitor experiences, the 2022 Emerging Curator and the Mentoring Curator will also focus on developing tools to support public programming that promotes social interaction, creative exchange and audience engagement.

VisArts will provide the Emerging Curator with budget of $10,000 to cover exhibition costs and curatorial fee. Additional funding and staff support for printing, promotions, and execution of exhibition programming is available. The program is one year and will begin in January 2022. 

Applicants must be U.S. Citizens, since VisArts is not equipped to handle any visa issues. 
The selection panel includes the VisArts’ Curator, Artist Advisory Council, Gallery Committee and 2022 Mentoring Curator.

The 2022 Mentoring Curator is Sofía Gallisá Muriente.
