Call for Curators: Picturing the Invisible

Written by Gabriele Grigorjeva
Published date 31 August 2019

How can we articulate the invisible, that which is not known, or that which is not provable?

Opportunity to curate a pop-up exhibition to coincide with the two-day conference - Picturing the Invisible, part of AHRC-funded research network.

Triangle Space, Chelsea College of Arts

7-9 November 2019

Deadline for curatorial proposals: Monday 23 September 2019

As our understanding of the complexity of the world grows incrementally, so does our realisation that issues and problems can rarely be resolved within neat demarcations. Therefore, finding means of communicating across disciplines and fields becomes a priority.

Whilst acknowledging the essential importance of the specialist academic, the capacity to understand other disciplines, their priorities, methodologies and even the language used, can become crucial in being an effective instrument for change.

We are looking for a Curator (or Curatorial Group) to work on an exhibition of selected works from MA/PhD students from across UAL, exploring the ways in which artists attempt to picture various phenomena and ideas.

This is an exciting opportunity to test out your ideas and have the experience of working on a live project!

The exhibition will be open to the public and the delegates of the Picturing the Invisible Conference with a private view taking place on Thursday, 7 November 2019.

Exhibition budget: £600 (to cover installation costs including labels etc)

Curators fee: £400

Terms:

  • The Nominated Curator (or Curatorial Group) must be current UAL student(s) or recent alumni.
  • The Nominated Curator (or Curatorial Group) would work with Professor Paul Coldwell and Gabriele Grigorjeva to take this through to the conclusion.
  • The Nominated Curator (or Curatorial Group) would be responsible for writing a short brief to send out to MA/PhD students Camberwell, Chelsea Wimbledon Colleges of Arts, and selecting the work from an open submission.
  • The exhibition should have the informality of an impromptu pop-up space.
  • The Nominated Curator (or Curatorial Group) must take account of the creative and practical aspects, including health and safety issues in staging an event that would be open to the public.
