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
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

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.
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.
