EUNIC in Russia Curatorial Exchange Project 2012
EUNIC in Russia is delighted to announce two events dedicated to the EUNIC curatorial exchange project. A young generation of Russian curators, working today both freelance and for cultural institutions in both Moscow and numerous dynamic cultural centres in Russia’s regions, will decisively shape the exhibitions and cultural life of the country in the future; modernizing and developing exhibition centres, biennales and institutions. Working experience in other countries can support their development.
In 2011 winners of the young curators competition had internships with: Haus der Kunst (Germany), Die Springerin and Tranzit (Austria), Kalmar konstmuseum (Sweden), Centre Pompidou-Metz (France), Anaid Art Gallery (Romania) and Turner Contemporary (the UK).
