Call for Applications

Founded in 1987, l'Ecole du Magasin, a professional ten-months training programme that lasts from end of September to July, was the first formation in Europe to propose a curatorial training programme in contemporary art. The program is specialized in the coordination of artistic projects related to the exhibition, and relies on the activity of the art centre it is part of. It focuses on candidates involved in the professional contemporary art world. Upon completion of the programmme, participants will receive an attestation of participation to the session. The level of l'Ecole du Magasin corresponds to a Master in fine arts, a specialized professional formation post Master 2, a professional formation in production and diffusion of contemporary art for candidates already involved in cultural structures.

L'Ecole du Magasin is conceived as a research and production programme, developed independently from any academic frame. Teachings are based on the elaboration and production of a project on a ten-months term.The topic of the project is elaborated at the very start of the formation, in the perspective of fulfilling its realization in a professional art venue, taking into account the mastering of the exhibition process and its artistic tools both technical and conceptual.

The deadline for applications is 30 June 2008, the application file is available at www.ecoledumagasin.com.
