BRIC - Brooklyn Information & Culture
The Rotunda Gallery

Application Deadline: Monday, May 8, 2006

Program Overview

The Rotunda Gallery's Curatorial Initiative Program fosters emerging curatorial talent in the field of contemporary art. Each year the Rotunda dedicates its professional space and full staff support to realizing the vision of an emerging curator selected through this open call for proposals. The curator is awarded the Lori Ledis Memorial Award, which was established through the donations of family, friends and professional associates of Lori Ledis, a pioneering art dealer and music producer, and member of both the Rotunda's Artist Advisory Committee and the Board of Directors of Brooklyn Information & Culture.

Application Process
Submit a one-page written description of your idea for a thematic group exhibition. Please describe how the exhibition theme will be developed through the artwork presented. You may include between 5 and 10 slides of artwork; these do not need to be exact pieces you will include in the exhibition, but rather selected to illustrate your ideas. All media will be considered.

Selection Process and Criteria
Five curatorial finalists will be selected; each will receive a $100 honorarium and be asked to prepare a full proposal including the names and resumes of 5-12 Brooklyn-affiliated artists (artists who live, work or were born in the borough) and slides of proposed work. Curators may not include their own work in the exhibition. Final selection will be made by the Gallery's Artist Advisory Committee. One proposal will be selected for presentation during the 2006-2007 exhibition season; the curator will receive the Ledis Award, a $1,000 honorarium.
