The Curatorial Program for Research (CPR) is pleased to announce its open call for curators to participate in CPR 2018: Dimming the Northern Lights. In this program curators will travel to the Nordic region, visiting Faroe Islands, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. CPR’s sixth fully-funded research program will take place from August 2–27, 2018.
Hosted by local institutions and independent curators, the program gathers a cohort of up to eight international curators. The robust programming offers daily visits to artist studios and local arts institutions, and it is complemented by readings about local socio-political history, arts, and culture. Following the trip, each curator will submit a proposal to conduct a project in his/her home city, and, one winning proposal will be awarded a production grant.
