Curatorial Program for Research 2024: Who is being heard? | Deadline 15 June 2024

This international open call is directed towards up to eight curators willing to partake in a travel residency in Norway, Sweden and Finland. The intense programme from September 15th to October 10th, 2024 is comprised of daily studio visits and meetings with 20 artists per country, public presentations by the curators, workshops and readings about local history. It lets the curators discuss and conduct research on perspectives that are being heard, represented and, even more pivotal, those that are not.

The Curatorial Program for Research (CPR) hosts their 9th annual residency in 2024 with unheard voices in mind. Be it marginalized peripheral groups, minorities or even voices from the past, everybody deserves to state their opinion and have listeners. Discussions will centre around active listening, if and how to listen to those we don’t agree with and determining who the Nordic art scene should lend an ear to more often. To instigate these discussions, CPR receives support from The Nordic Culture FundFrame FinlandThe Finnish Cultural Institute of New YorkThe Finnish Cultural Institute of LondonThe Office for Contemporary Art NorwayIASPIS and the Visual Artist Support Center, Norrbotten. 

The residency will be fully funded for a maximum of eight participants, including travelling fees and accommodation costs. The application requires a curriculum vitae demonstrating at least two years of professional curatorial experience, a fee of 75 USD as well as an online application form and short statement of motivation. A committee of CPR staff and guest jurors will select the grantees.
