Open Call: Frame Curatorial Research Fellowship

EVA International is pleased to partner with Casco Art Institute (NL) and Frame Contemporary Art (FL) on a new fellowship programme for contemporary art curators.

The programme offers four full months of working time with a stipend of 11,200 EUR, together with a small production budget and travel and accommodation costs. Fellows selected for the programme will have the opportunity to dive into curatorial research in an institutional environment comprising Frame, Casco Art Institute, and EVA International, along with various associates including artists, researchers, other practitioners, and institutional actors.

The programme offers support for developing new curatorial research practices and cultivating active practices embedded in an organisational context. What kind of curatorial research is needed in order to imagine new ways presenting and mediating contemporary art and cultural production in forms inseparable from daily life, politics and the policies of artists and institutions?

The fellowships also offer an opportunity to re-think what internationality and mobility of curatorial research can mean in the future. Are there new ways in which travelling, physical mobility and being present in certain geographical contexts can support socially and ecologically sustainable research practices? The programme seeks new forms of research that can renew curatorial and institutional working habits and introduce new ideological frameworks for sustainable international mobility within the curatorial research field.

For more information and learn more about the application process, research contexts and fees, please visit the Frame website here. Deadline for applications is 7 June 2020. The Frame Curatorial Research Fellowship programme is supported by the Kone Foundation.
