In a bid to develop curatorial practice in Uganda and to encourage the development of curators living or working in Uganda, Afriart Gallery has set apart 3 exhibitions out of its 2015 exhibition calendar to be independently curated by up-coming curators. We believe is a great opportunity for curators to try out their skills.
Application deadline: February 28th, 2015.
Afriart Gallery invites curators to submit proposals for an exhibition of contemporary art in our space in Kampala, Uganda. Afriart Gallery is a gallery with an emphasis on new and experimental forms of expression. We are looking for curators with a vision that coincides with the gallery's mission of providing an engaging space that fosters innovation and exploration. As Afriart Gallery seeks to be a platform for emerging artists to produce and present their work, as well as a site of sustained dialogue with the public, we are open to curatorial proposals that draw from a wide range of artistic practices. Strong proposals will be clear, concise and engaging while presenting innovative ideas that show a solid understanding of the spirit of Afriart Gallery. We encourage you to visit our gallery website, review our exhibition history and consider the gallery floor plan before submitting a proposal. The deadline for the 2015 application is February 28th, 2015. Applicants will be contacted with a decision from the Afriart Gallery committee within four weeks of the deadline.
