Hayward Touring: Curatorial Open 2010

Curate a Hayward Touring Exhibition.

Hayward Touring invites proposals for an exhibition to be shown in four UK galleries in 2010/11.

You don't have to be a professional exhibition maker to propose an idea. We welcome innovative proposals from artists, writers and imaginative thinkers of all kinds, as well as from people working in galleries and museums. It may be a show you have never seen but would like to; there may be a theme or tendency in contemporary art and visual culture that you think deserves to be explored in new ways. Simply describe your project in no more than 600 words, and accompany it with an initial list of artists and a selection of images.

The exhibition will tour to: John Hansard Gallery, Southampton; QUAD, Derby; Oriel Mostyn Gallery, Llandudno; Leamington Spa Art Gallery and Museum.

The successful applicant will receive an honorarium of 3,000 plus 1,000 for research and travel expenses. S/he will work in collaboration with Hayward Touring and the participating galleries on an exhibition of around 130-150 square metres, to open in July 2010. The exhibition budget will allow for some international loans and a modest publication.

The selection panel will include the Director, Hayward Gallery, Senior Curator, Hayward Touring, an artist (to be announced) and representatives of the participating galleries.

Application deadline: Monday 21 September 2009, 5pm
Short-listing: late September 2009
Interviews: mid October 2009
