Currents: Euregional platform for emerging artists and curators

Call for Curators - Currents#7

For the seventh edition of Currents, Z33 and Marres are looking for a team of curators (minimum two persons). Currents is an annual group exhibition, showcasing works by recently graduated artists from art academies in Belgium, Germany, and the southern Netherlands. The exhibition will be embedded in a broader guidance trajectory in which training, networking and professionalization are central.

 

Currents: platform for emerging artists and curators

With Currents, Z33 (House for contemporary art, Hasselt) and Marres (House for contemporary culture, Maastricht), act as a platform to launch the careers of emerging artists and curators. Both houses contribute to an international infrastructure for talent development. The exhibition Currents #7 will be presented January 2020 at the new building of Z33 in Hasselt. 

After six editions, Currents is a secure platform for young artists and curators. Over the past years, 112 artists from 12 academies have exhibited their work, have given presentations, and participated in workshops. By participating in the project, 15 young international curators have given their careers a considerable boost.
