Disjecta Interdisciplinary Art Center – Looking for Curator-in-Residence – deadline 11/18/11

Disjecta Interdisciplinary Art Center is accepting proposals for a curator-in-residence for its 2012-2013 exhibition season.

Disjecta developed the Curator-in-Residence program to allow for significant engagement with a broad range of curators and artists. Rotated on an annual cycle, the program provides an opportunity for local and national curatorial talent to develop and expand the scope of their curatorial practice by organizing a series of exhibitions in Disjecta’s dynamic 3,000-square-foot space.

Portland, Ore.-based Disjecta Interdisciplinary Art Center is accepting proposals for a curator-in- residence for its 2012-2013 exhibition season. Disjecta is a nonprofit art and cultural organization that provides essential resources for artists to create and exhibit new work, serving as a bridge between Portland’s larger arts institutions and smaller, grassroots organizations and galleries. Disjecta houses an expansive exhibition space for the presentation of vital visual and performing arts at the local, regional, national and international level that speaks to the region’s diverse interests, talents and identities.

Disjecta developed the Curator-in-Residence program to allow for significant engagement with a broad range of curators and artists. Rotated on an annual cycle, the program provides an opportunity for local and national curatorial talent to develop and expand the scope of their curatorial practice by organizing a series of exhibitions in Disjecta’s dynamic 3,000-square-foot space.

Throughout the season (September 2012 through August 2013) the curator-in-residence will organize a series of five to six exhibitions. At least three of these must highlight regional artists of the Pacific Northwest.

The nature of Disjecta’s exhibition space and mission encourages contemporary work that is installation-based, specific to the site or project-based. Disjecta encourages artists and guest curators to challenge themselves and viewers, to take intelligent risks, and to expand definitions of discipline. Curator-in-Residence applicants must have a minimum of a 3-year curatorial history.
