Carclew, in partnership with the City of Adelaide’s Emerging Curator Program, is offering three young arts practitioners the opportunity to curate visual art projects in a variety of Council locations.
The Emerging Curator Program enables emerging curators to gain vital practical experience by programming exhibitions within the iconic Adelaide Town Hall (1st Floor Gallery & Mankurri-api Kuu/Reconciliation Room) and contemporary 24/7 street front gallery, Art Pod.
The Emerging Curator Program is engaging three aspiring curatorial practitioners to further support their professional pathway and applied development.
The three selected curators are Chiranjika Grasby, Christina Massolino and Carclew’s 2019 Curator in Residence, Jack McBride who will work closely with Carclew and mentor Jill Newman (Manager – Arts in Health at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital Foundation), to curate two multidisciplinary art exhibitions in these locations over an eight-month period, including one for SALA Festival.
Carclew Chief Executive Tricia Walton said in a press release that she was thrilled to have three amazing young curators within the program.
“There aren’t many opportunities in South Australia for creative professionals who are keen to explore the intricacies of curating thoughtful, challenging and beautiful artworks into an exhibition that itself makes a statement. Carclew supports the early work of many artists and, through the Emerging Curator program, their work can be seen in significant public spaces in our city.”
Their first exhibition titled ‘Beyond All Disposition’ will launch on Wednesday 22nd May at 25 Pirie Street.
