Curatorial practice as it emerged during the 20th century is being extensively recast. The tremendous change in the status of the object, culture, the various disciplines, information and education, implies an inevitable transformation of the curator’s role and competences. A renewed interest for curatorial practice has recently emerged within the field of architecture.
For the second year the CCA offers two curatorial opportunities: the Young Curator Program and the Power Corporation of Canada Curatorial Internships Program.
Realize your own curatorial project at the CCA, and apply for the Young Curator Program by Friday, May 11, 2012. This program offers the opportunity to propose and curate a project on the contemporary debate in architecture, urbanism, and landscape design during a residency of three months at the CCA beginning in Fall 2012.
If you want to take part in the CCA’s curatorial activities, apply for the Power Corporation of Canada Curatorial Internships Program by Friday, May 11, 2012. These internships are designed to share the CCA’s expertise with students and recent graduates in design disciplines, arts and humanities. One or two selected candidates will have the opportunity to become acquainted with the CCA’s collection, exhibition, and research programs through a six- to nine-month internship beginning in Fall 2012.
