Bringing together speed dating and portfolio viewings, curators are invited to review artists’ portfolios in 10 short sessions of 20 minutes each. The day closes with food and drinks for everybody.
In a clean and friendly environment, PIGS will bring together artists and curators who have not yet met and appear to share interests with each other. The curators will be chosen based on their variety of interests and practices. The artists will be chosen based on their work and “compatibility” with the participating curators. During the event, the curators will stay at their tables while the artists rotate with their laptops, catalogues etc.
up to 15 curators: Each curator reviews 10 portfolios.
up to 25 artists: Each artist meets at least 4 curators.
A number of guest curators / artist-curators will also be present during the day. With them, artists can informally test-run their presentations while meeting a few more interesting contacts.
