Mon, Nov 7 2011 NoguerasBlanchard 2011, Barcelona, NoguerasBlanchard, Open Call, premio, prácticas curatoriales
is pleased to announce a Curatorial Open Call 2012
, which invites individuals or collectives to submit a proposal for curating an exhibition at NoguerasBlanchard
in Barcelona. The successful proposal will take place between June and July of 2012.
For four years now NoguerasBlanchard’s exhibition program has included in the month of June an exhibition proposal by a guest curator. In order to continue this line, to expand artistic horizons and provide a platform for curatorial practice and the making of group exhibitions, we launch our Curatorial Open Call 2012.
The selected curator/s will receive a maximum of €4.000 in concept of honorarium and exhibition production budget. NoguerasBlanchard will provide administrative and production support, design and mailing of the press release/invitation card and an opening reception. The curator/curatorial collective must be in Barcelona for the setting up and the opening evening.
The proposal should:
- Be thought taking in consideration NoguerasBlanchard exhibition space (see floorplan below)
- Have an international interest
- Show financial feasibility
We encourage proposals to challenge curatorial and gallery practices.
The decision will be made public on NoguerasBlanchard website and by mail, before February 1st, 2012
The jury will consist of 4 curators/curatorial group that have previously carried out group shows in the gallery:
Latitudes (Max Andrews and Mariana Cánepa Luna), independent curatorial practice. Extraordinary Rendition, exhibited in 2007;
Jacqueline Uhlmann, independent curator. Shining by Absence, exhibited in 2009;
Juan Canela, independent curator. Ref 08001, exhibited in 2010;
Direlia Lazo, independent curator. Somewhere Else, exhibited in 2011.

Application deadline: December 31, 2011

Information about NoguerasBlanchard
NoguerasBlanchard opened in June 2004 and is located next to Las Ramblas in the historic, multi-ethnic, Raval neighbourhood, in Barcelona. In this context we are strongly committed to developing an exhibition programme with emerging international artists whose work shows strong conceptual concerns and participates in the dialogue between art and broader currents in contemporary society.
The gallery's main goal is to engage in a long-term commitment with the careers of its artists and to be highly involved in the production of works. We are assisting with proposals, raising funds to produce films, biennial projects or catalogues while working in close alliance with international galleries and institutions, generating from co-productions to traveling exhibitions.
NoguerasBlanchard's participation in international fairs is essential for the promotion of our artists world-wide, while enabling us locally to maintain a lively and stimulating environment for art production and exchange.
