Curatorial Opportunity Program (COP)
The New Art Center (NAC), Newton, USA, has a 35-year tradition of using its Main Gallery for group exhibitions curated by an independent curator. Since May 1991, the Center has continued this tradition through Curatorial Opportunity Program's public call for proposals.
The New Art Center's Curatorial Opportunity Program (COP) is currently accepting proposals for contemporary art exhibitions involving two or more artists and at least one public presentation. This open-call programme supports independent curators by making possible diverse visions in a non-profit and alternative exhibition space. The programme investigates contemporary culture through the visual arts, exhibits strong curatorial voices, and encourages the timely examination of new ideas and perspectives. Curators of accepted proposals receive a 1,000 USD stipend as well as administrative, installation, marketing and PR support.
The COP furthers the New Art Center's mission to support the development of visual artists and cultivate a community that appreciates art. COP exhibitions and associated public programmes are the foundation of the gallery education and outreach programmes and enhance the learning available in studio classes and workshops, which educate over 2,500 students annually and sustain a faculty of 40 professional artists.
Application deadline is 25 January 2016.
