Descripción del Premio
The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation is excited to announce the first in a series of open calls, giving curators, academics, and art historians a platform to stage an exhibition at The 8th Floor, the Foundation's gallery and event space, at 17 West 17th St. near Union Square, NYC. We are searching for emerging or established researchers and cultural presenters to work with us to realize their pre-existing, and as-yet unrealized exhibition concept. Proposals with an experimental and/or pedagogical approach are sought for thematic group, or solo presentations. Applicants should be engaged in research which addresses themes reflecting the Foundation's mission of art and social justice, championing equity, education, access, and underrepresented narratives and practices. Selected curators will be given an honorarium of 3000 USD for their work on the exhibition and 2000 USD for their essay for the accompanying catalog. In addition to an exhibition budget, they will be guided and ... supported in their administrative, planning, and promotional endeavors by the curatorial team at the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation. This commission is open to those listed in the criteria for this application and there is no fee to apply. The chosen curator will engage in all associated programming, in tandem with the resulting exhibition. All qualified applicants will receive consideration regardless of race, color, sex, age, national origin, religion, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, marital status, citizenship, or any other protected status. Applications will open on February 15, 2022, a link to the application portal can be found on the Opportunities page of the Foundation website. The deadline for submissions is March 30, 2022 and results will be announced in April. The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation believes in art as a cornerstone of cohesive, resilient communities and greater participation in civic life.
