Deadline Friday 27 October 2017
Do you have an idea for an exhibition, performance, intervention or event?
Fringe Arts Bath Festival is calling out to aspiring curators, offering the opportunity to devise and organise a show as part of FaB Festival, 25 May - 10 June 2018.
Anyone can apply, with any level of experience: students, graduates, artists, local, national or international.
FaB is a test-bed for the new, wonderful and sometimes odd. We encourage you to think outside the box! Visit www.fringeartsbath.co.uk for info & inspiration.
FaB curators’ shows can include: performance, intervention, installation, multi-media and video work, photography, drawing, painting, sculpture and all disciplines in between.
Curating a show for FaB is a great chance to gain experience in this competitive field, to realise your own exhibition or event, to make new contacts and network. In past years FaB has initiated exchanges between artists and curators from Manchester, Swansea, Oxford, Bath, Hungary, Poland, Canada and beyond.
Selection by committee will take place in November, those selected will be invited to attend a curator’s meeting after which your show will be advertised in FaB’s November call out to artists.
FaB will offer you admin support, practical advice through regular meetings, mentoring from past curators and exhibition space.
Deadline Friday 27th October 2017
Get in touch and tell us about your idea! Submit a proposal of up to 500 words detailing the underpinning themes with supporting images and your CV, all saved as a PDF. Email to email@example.com or post to Fringe Arts Bath, 103 Walcot Street, Bath BA1 5BW.
FaB 2017 saw visitor numbers break 9,500 across 36 exhibitions and 60+ events housed in 15 venues and around Bath's streets.
Bath is located in the South West of England with good transport links, has a thriving art scene and plays host to many international festivals throughout the year; FaB is the only visual arts extravaganza!
Please be aware FaB cannot offer funding at this time, but can cover some expenses agreed in advance. We are a volunteer-run, non-profit registered company.
