Residency Unlimited supports the creation, presentation and dissemination of contemporary art through its unique residency program and year-round public programs. RU in partnership with Visual AIDS announces a one-month curatorial residency, which will take place between March 1 and March 31, 2015 in New York City. The residency seeks to encourage the development of exhibitions, programs, and scholarship about HIV/AIDS and contemporary art.
The resident curator will conduct research at Visual AIDS in the Archive Project and online Artists Registry and will be invited to produce a free, public event co-hosted by RU and Visual AIDS. Panel discussions, film screenings, performances, or a lecture highlighting the curator’s use of Visual AIDS’ resources or a presentation of international cultural production around HIV/AIDS are examples of potential programs.
The residency is open to international curators, art historians, or arts writers interested in the intersection of visual art and HIV/AIDS. Special consideration will be given to applicants living outside of New York City from locations without support for cultural production about AIDS, LGBT, and gender issues.
The residency includes round-trip transportation to New York City, accommodation and $1000 stipend.
Interested candidates must fill in the online application form HERE. During the application process you should submit a C.V. and a Statement of Purpose (maximum 2 pages) outlining your goals for the residency, and any past or current projects that have led you to cultural investigations around HIV/AIDS.
The deadline to apply is 7 November 2014.
