OPEN CALL: Curatorial Projects 

The Curatorial Project Open Call provides one deserving curator or curatorial team the necessary time and resources to realize an innovative project with the aim of encouraging curatorial research in tandem with exhibition planning. CUE provides institutional guidance and resources to the curator, who produces a group exhibition in CUE’s space with related public programming and an accompanying exhibition catalogue in 2018.  

The selected curator will receive valuable mentor support from one panelist including installation guidance in preparation for the exhibition, and will be awarded a $2,500 honorarium; a budget of $2,500 to divide amongst the participating artists and program speakers; and a production budget of $2,000.  Proposals are evaluated on merit of project, singularity of concept, and adherence to the application guidelines.
