Curatorial practice is in the air this week. Word came from the awesome people over at HATCH Projects as part of the Chicago Artists Coalition that applications are up for both the curatorial and artists residencies. Elsewhere in the world of curatorial-ness, something is going down in Paris, and Frieze wants someone badass to hire.
Hatch Projects curatorial residency application: August 15th
Hatch Projects artists residency application: October 1st
HATCH Projects (2012-2013) is a yearlong, juried incubator for contemporary Chicago artists and curators that strives to support an ecology of curatorial and artistic practice. A pioneering initiative of CAC, HATCH Projects fosters shared experimentation, exchange and creativity to produce ground-breaking exhibitions and programs.
The Curatorial Residency is a new component of the program, designed by an Advisory Committee of local curators, artists and arts administrators who identified a need for professional development opportunities for emerging curators.
Artist Residents are divided into groups of six to work with one Curator Resident throughout the year. Selected artists will participate in two exhibitions curated by the groupâ€™s assigned Curator Resident. Each Artist Resident receives professional development through dynamic exhibitions, one-on-one studio visits, public programs, and community building to develop a sustainable creative practice.
Mentor Curators will provide experienced mentorship to selected Curator Residents throughout the year: Romi Crawford, (Ph.D.) Associate Professor, Visual Critical Studies and Liberal Arts and Graduate Director, Visual Critical Studies, School of the Art Institute of Chicago; Lisa Dorin (Associate Curator of Contemporary Art, Art Institute of Chicago); Sarah Herda (Executive Director, Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts); and Lisa Yun
Lee (Director, Jane Addams Hull-House Museum). Tricia Van Eck (founder and Director, 6018 North) will act as the HATCH Projects Advisor.
High five woman curator power.

Young Curators program, Palais de Tokyo, Paris, EU
Deadline September 30th
(hell yes: no application fee, must be under 40)
Dedicated to the emergence of the newest forms of contemporary art as it is, the Palais de Tokyo sees participating in the renewal of the ecosystem of art as part of its remit. This is why it undertakes to seek out and support new players, and new directions.
Thus in the summer of 2013 the Palais de Tokyo is entrusting its entire program schedule to young curators. Selected on the basis of the proposals they submit, the winners will bear witness to the perpetual reinvention of the issues involved in curating an exhibition, their scouting talent, and their ability to dream up new ways of relating to art. This event is likewise intended to demonstrate the dynamism of Paris and the surrounding area as part of a joint initiative involving a great many partners and institutions.
