OPEN CALL | Shanghai University Hosted by SAFA (Shanghai Academy of Fine Art, Shanghai University) and Shanghai International Art City Research Institute, in collaboration with Shanghai Biennale (Power Station of Art), Shanghai Curators Lab (SCL) is a dynamic and challenging curatorial platform for early career curators focusing on experimental and critical discussion of the ecology of curatorial practice. SCL is also an artistic agency to intervene in and interpret the meaning of artistic and cultural production in a period of transforming knowledge, information, systems and values. Since curatorial practice has become an open-ended, catalytic cultural agency for shifting perspectives on artistic, socio-political, environmental, urban and various industrial showcases, a wide range of intersectional meeting points for research and practice is essential. Led by professor Yongwoo Lee and curator-duo Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath, founders of curatorial collective Art Reoriented, participants will experience and explore the hybridized, multi-layered art community of Shanghai and more broadly China during their time in the Lab. SCL serves to bridge art and educational institutions across China and beyond, having already created a remarkable impact in its first year launch led by two lead professors Carolyn Christov Bakargiev (Director of the Castello di Rivoli Museum of Contemporary Art) and Yongwoo Lee, with the participation of 21 curators from 12 countries. It works to facilitate theoretical and practical implications not only in the area of visual arts, but also in the context of knowledge production. Deadline: September 5, 2019
