SEEKING APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2016-2017
CURATOR IN RESIDENCE
application deadline: NOVEMBER 30, 2015
Charlotte Street Foundation seeks applications from outstanding curators based in the United States for the 2016-2017 Charlotte Street Curator-in-Residence.
The Curator-in-Residence will be responsible for conceiving, producing and presenting a series of original exhibitions and public programs (which may include talks, discussions, workshops, screenings, performances, events, etc) for Charlotte Street’s la Esquina gallery− a 2500 sf “white box” located in the downtown area of Kansas City, Missouri −over the course of their term.
Through the Curator-in-Residence program, Charlotte Street Foundation seeks to provide unique opportunities for exceptional emerging curators to immerse themselves in Kansas City and to actively engage with artists and the arts community of our region. The curatorial residency offers a high-profile public platform through which to explore, develop and test ideas, build relationships, and advance their curatorial practices and careers. The exhibitions and programs they develop are expected to be responsive to, and inclusive of, work by artists from the Kansas City region while exemplifying fresh perspectives and forging connections between area artists and artists from elsewhere.
