Hunterdon Art Museum Program for Independent Curators


HAM Program for Independent Curators
Hunterdon Art Museum

Clinton, New Jersey

The Hunterdon Art Museum focuses on new and innovative work in all forms and mediums with the goal of creating dialogue, generating ideas and sparking creativity. HAM has a particular interest in work that explores the intersection of art, craft and design and work that displays the qualities of craftsmanship while pushing the limits of the materials in innovative ways.

The Museum seeks proposals that focus on innovative work by artists of outstanding potential and established artists who have international, national or regional reputations. Proposals may be for thematic or solo shows. Curators should have a track record of creating exhibitions in the fields of contemporary art, craft, and design; however, the Museum will also accept for review proposals from emerging curators developing their careers. Curators may not include their own work in the proposed exhibition. Additionally, the exhibition should not have been on view within 50 miles of the Museum’s location.

The HAM Program for Independent Curators is a dynamic project that opens the way for an array of ideas and viewpoints on contemporary art, craft, and design to be presented in the Hunterdon Art Museum’s exhibitions program.

Ideally, proposals should be submitted one to two years in advance of the proposed exhibition; however, shorter lead times will be considered and in some cases desired. Please do not send original art or documents, as materials will not be returned. The Museum will contact curators of interest for an in-person discussion with the Museum’s Exhibitions Committee to determine whether the proposal is feasible.
