ArtSlant has partnered with EXPO CHICAGO to present an open call for curators called Curator’s Open. One user’s My List will be selected to mount at EXPO CHICAGO this September by a panel of influential curators including Independent Curator, Audrey Illouz, Maiza Hixson, the DCCA Gretchen Hupfel Curator of Contemporary Art, overseen by EXPO CHICAGO’s Director of Programming, Patricia Courson. EXPO CHICAGO will run from September 18 – 24, 2014 at the Navy Pier in Chicago, Illinois.
As an ArtSlant user, you are able to create My Lists. My Lists are your way to create collections of artwork; for inspiration, for future reference, or even your gallery night out. Curator’s Open makes use of this tool. First, you will be taken to a search page which presents artwork from members of the ArtSlant Community.
To begin, just click on enter Curator’s Open from your profile or go to the Contest tab in your My Page. When you find something you like, add it to your Curator’s Open My List. Complete your entry by adding more works until you are satisfied with your exhibition. Save your selections by clicking the submit button. Then just add your exhibition title, exhibition proposal and exhibition history. First timers are most welcome but professionalism will be a key component in the selection of the winning proposal.
Deadline for curatorial proposals is July 31, 2014.
