CUE Open Call for Curatorial Projects

Visual Arts
Organization CUE Art Foundation
Deadline June 30, 2023

CUE’s open call for curatorial projects is now accepting applications! The open call builds upon CUE’s mission to support emerging and underrecognized artists and arts workers. The selected curator is awarded an opportunity to gain experience in curatorial research and exhibition making by organizing a group exhibition at CUE’s gallery space during the 2024 calendar year.

Each awardee will be paired with a mentor, an established curator who will work with them throughout the process of planning the exhibition and associated programming. CUE provides a generous honorarium to each awardee, a budget for the curator to allocate amongst participating artists, and a budget for transport of artwork and materials for on-site installation of the works in the show. CUE staff also provides guidance on project conceptualization and exhibition design in our space, communication and outreach support, identity and graphic design development, photography and visual assets, professional development assistance, and more.

Additionally, for each show at our gallery space, CUE produces an accompanying exhibition catalogue with a long-form essay developed through our Art Critic Mentorship Program, written by an independent emerging writer. The catalogue also contains curator, artist, and mentor statements, bios, and images of the work.
