Working since 2010 for the interconnection and the exchange of local knowledge of art professionals and their institutions.
The Curators’ Network was created to overcome the lack of promotion of the peripheries of the art world:
- Helping art professionals across the world to share their knowledge
- Encouraging international collaboration between artists, art institutions and other art professionals
- Making visible the local clusters in the art world that till now have remained in the shade.
Curators’ Network is a platform which works since 2010 for the interconnection and the exchange of the local knowledge and for the mutual benefit of all implicated art professionals and their institutions.
Founder of Curators’ Network is hablarenarte: (Spain). Founding members of the Curators’ Network are the entities who joined hablarenarte: in the first three years of the project from 2010-2013: Kunsthalle Exnergasse (Austria), Studio of Young Artists (Hungary), Brukenthal Museum (Romania) and Foundation for Visual Arts (Poland).
Curators’ Network received a “Culture 2007-2013” grant of the European Commision between 2011 and 2013.
The general aim of Curators’ Network is to foster the international promotion and interconnection of art professionals who live and work in environments that can be considered peripheral to the main centres of contemporary art. It seeks making visible these professionals on an international scale as well as transferring local knowledge to an international community and vice versa. The activities of Curators’ Network are real-life events that are always combined with tools of digital promotion.
- Detecting and making visible the local clusters in the art world that till now have remained in the shade.
- Giving international visibility to emerging and mid-career artists among a general public.
- Helping create strong and long-lasting cultural networks among countries with no cultural exchange.
- Helping art professionals across the world to enter in dialogue and share their knowledge.
- Encouraging international collaboration between artists, art institutions and other art professionals.
- Encouraging the transnational mobility of curators, artists, art writers and other cultural agents.
