International Curators Program

Organisation. Artspace

Year: 2024

The International Curators Program (ICP) will invite leading international curators who are at the forefront of contemporary curatorial practice and expanded models of exhibition-making, to travel to Australia to participate in an itinerary of artist research and peer-to-peer engagement with local, cultural institutions.

This new partnership will support up to four international curators annually, over the next three years and will make a significant contribution to contemporary practice in Australia. The program aims to deepen their understanding of the Asia Pacific region and its discourses, and to foster new networks and collaborations, while promoting the exchange of ideas.

Artspace Executive Director, Alexie Glass-Kantor and the Founder of the Keir Foundation, Phillip Keir stated that “these relationships are key to expanding dialogues and developing partnerships, as well as creating global opportunities and professional networks for Australian artists. We hope to form collaborative partnerships with international colleagues that enable us to share information, networks and artistic content.”

March 2024: John Train, curator of Mountains and Seas, the third edition of the Lahore Biennale; and Maria Lind, Director Kin Museum of Contemporary Art, Kiruna, Sweden.
