14:44Fondazione Prada and QMA announce the CURATE Award
A global competition organized by Qatar Museums Authority and Fondazione Prada to find new curating talent is accepting entries online on www.curateaward.org until 31 December 2013. Curate opens up and challenges people’s ideas of what an exhibition can be. It will provide one winner with the unprecedented opportunity to curate the exhibition of their dreams. A world-renowned Jury will judge ideas on their creativity and social significance, rewarding those with a contemporary and culturally relevant point of view. They will be
looking for an exemplary exhibition that is both far-sighted and critical to the future. Participation in the competition is not limited to aspiring or established curators, but is open to anyone with a great concept for creative expression, with the emphasis on encouraging young people to compete, whether as individuals or as collaborative groups.
The Jury is: Her Excellency Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad Al-Thani, Chairperson, Qatar Museums Authority; Miuccia Prada, President, Fondazione Prada; Rem Koolhaas, architect, urban theorist, OMA/AMO founder; Nadine Labaki, Lebanese film-maker and actress; Nawal El Moutawakel, the first woman from a Muslim majority Country to win an Olympic gold medal; and Hans Ulrich Obrist, codirector, Serpentine Gallery, London. Proposals can be uploaded to the Curate website for consideration by the Jury. The format of the proposal should be a self-made video no longer than two minutes in length, with a one page accompanying text explaining the idea.
As stated by the Curate Jury: "The notion of ‘curating’ no longer belongs just to the museum. With the development of digital and social media, it has now become possible for anyone to participate in the selection, editing and communication of ideas. We hope that people, whatever their age or background, will make the most of the opportunity offered by Curate to think about the future potential of exhibition making, where there are no
imposed boundaries to media, scale, content and formats, and ideas, whether from the fields of science or the arts, can come from anywhere.”
