English Français Curator in Residence 2018 Banff International Curatorial Institute


This six-month residency will provide time, space, and access to resources for mid-career curators to develop an exhibition or project, conduct research, while engaging with artists-in-residence and programs in Visual + Digital Arts. This residency is suited to curators focused on the development of a substantial project resulting in an external public exhibition or curatorial event. Curators are encouraged to meet with artists-in-residence, share their research in the form of a presentation, and engage with curatorial and artistic staff at Banff Centre in the development of their external project.

What does the program offer?

Residencies offer structured programs where artists, curators, and other arts professionals come together to create work and discuss pertinent themes in contemporary artistic practice. Scheduled programming is light and designed to allow for ample research and project development, and time to collaborate with the creative community at Banff Centre.

Curators will benefit from the insight and mentorship of Banff Centre curatorial staff, visiting curators, faculty, and artists, and through interaction with various Visual + Digital Arts residency programs and other arts programs across campus. This program requires a full six-month commitment and variable dates will not be considered.

If an exhibiting partner for the proposed project is not yet identified, some assistance or coordination may be provided to secure an external opportunity for final presentation of the work created while in residence.

Who should apply?

This program is open to curators exploring pertinent topics within visual arts and art criticism.
