Open Call to UK based artists | Curate a Hayward Touring Exhibition

baltic-39-install-shot-listeningApplication deadline: 9am, Monday 5 September 2016

Hayward Touring invites proposals for an exhibition of contemporary art to be shown in four UK galleries in 2017/18. You don’t have to be a professional curator or exhibition-maker to submit an idea. Hayward welcome suggestions for innovative projects from artists, writers and imaginative thinkers in all walks of life, as well as from people working in galleries and museums. Your proposal might be for an exhibition that re-invents the way we think about art; it might be a new and surprising take on a well-worn subject; there may be a theme or tendency in contemporary art and visual culture that you think deserves to be explored in new ways; or a theme that you have always thought would make a great exhibition.

The exhibition will open in MAC, Belfast in autumn 2017 and then tour to DCA, Dundee and two further venues to be announced.

The successful applicant will receive an honorarium and a budget for research and travel. S/he will work in collaboration with Hayward Touring and the participating galleries on an exhibition of around 350 square metres, to open in October 2017. The selection panel will include curators from Hayward Touring and the participating galleries.

Short-listing: mid-September 2016

Interviews: End September / First week of October
