Portland, Oregon-based Disjecta Contemporary Art Center is accepting proposals for a Curator-in-Residence for its 2014-2015 exhibition season.
Disjecta houses an expansive exhibition space for the presentation of visual and performing arts at the regional, national and international level that speaks to the region’s diverse interests, talents and identities.
Supported in part by a grant from The National Endowment for the Arts, the CIR program—the first of its kind in the region—provides an opportunity for emerging local and national curatorial talent to develop and expand the scope of their practice through a one-year residency. Curators actively engage with a broad range of artists to create a series of exhibitions in Disjecta’s dynamic 3,500-square-foot space.
Throughout the season (September 2014 through April 2015) the Curator-in-Residence will organize four to six exhibitions. The nature of Disjecta’s exhibition space and mission facilitate contemporary work that is installation-based, specific to the site or project-based—though these should not be considered limitations. Disjecta encourages artists and guest curators to challenge themselves and viewers, to take intelligent risks, and to expand definitions of disciplines.
