Maryland Art Place Curators’ Incubator Program

Deadline: May 12, 2012 (POSTMARK) or (HAND DELIVERY)

10th Anniversary Curators’ Incubator Program

Maryland Art Place
Baltimore, Maryland
May 2 to June 22, 2013

Maryland Art Place (MAP) announces a call for curators to participate in the 10th Curators' Incubator exhibition competition. This program was developed to provide a creative space for the region’s aspiring curators to develop and present their concepts. MAP guides the curatorial process through the counsel of its Program Advisory Committee.

Curators' proposals will be juried by MAP's Program Advisory Committee. The selected curator or curatorial team will be chosen to fully develop an exhibition scheduled for MAY 2 – JUNE 22, 2013. MAP welcomes discussion with curators prior to the deadline to assist in developing strong proposals.

The call for entry requires that curators complete an application form and submit a proposal, outlining the curators' ideas and goals in a statement of intent, while including a short bio for each artist intended to be included in the exhibition. Curators may not include themselves in the exhibition. After the initial review of proposals, a small number of curators will be asked to advance to the second phase of the application process where they will submit additional information, including

images of artists’ work being proposed for inclusion in the exhibition. Curators will be asked to come to MAP to present their proposals and if selected, will receive individual mentorship as they work to develop their exhibitions for debut in MAP’s galleries and to strengthen their curatorial writing in preparation for publication in a program catalogue.

Selected curators will be responsible for coordinating the delivery and both the installation and de-installation of artists’ work. They will also be responsible for unusual expenses regarding the installation and removal of their exhibitions, and must sign an agreement that their exhibition space will be returned to its original condition.

There is no fee to participate in the Curators’ Incubator program.

The deadline for submitting materials to be considered for the 10th Anniversary Curators’ Incubator Program is 5pm, May 12, 2012. Materials can be either hand-delivered to MAP or post marked.
