Encura III: Open Call for a curatorial research residency

Fully-funded two-month-residencies in Barcelona.

Hangar Barcelona in association with Curators' Network is offering a fully-funded two-months curatorial residency in Barcelona (Spain), during February and March, 2019.

The call is free of charge and open to all curators and researchers who currently do not live and work in Catalonia. Deadline for the submission of applications is October 14, 2018, midnight, Spanish time, CEST time zone. 

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work either with artists residents at Hangar and/or other cultural agents, located in Catalonia and/or another location along the Spanish territory. Therefore, the selected candidate will have the occasion to research the wider artistic context of Barcelona and Catalonia as well as to establish networks and dialogues with other local and national cultural agents.

It will be fundamental to justify the reason for developing the research in the selected territories, understanding the residency as a process of situated work in which immersion in the context makes the places, agents, present structures and relationships contribute coherence to the project.

We are aware that in rural or peripheral territories, this situated work usually arises organically due to the needs or riches of the context. For this reason, the selection criteria include sensitivity to projects related to these places, although they do not exclude proposals located in other environments such as the urban one.

Applicants should submit a proposal that fits into the general lines of work of Hangar and Curators' Network. As previously mentioned, the proposal should foresee a collaboration with other cultural agents (2 maximum), as well as a presentation of the outcomes in a format other than a classical exhibition.

The selected candidates are expected to realize the suggested project during the residency.

Information and applications here.
