Ecole du Magasin - Session 20: Call for Application

Founded in 1987 and based in Grenoble at Le Magasin (Centre national d'art contemporain), L'Ecole du Magasin is a ten-month international curatorial training programme that specializes in the coordination of artistic and exhibition-related projects.

The school's training programme has two objectives: On the one hand, to complement the academic training of the participants by giving them access to theoretical and practical knowledge with which they are otherwise unfamiliar and by introducing them to other cultures; and, on the other hand, to accompany the participants in the critical analysis of curatorial practice and in direct contact and exchange with various actors, as they enter the professional world of contemporary art.

L'Ecole du Magasin is an independent research program; its teaching is developed independently of an academic institution and is based on the elaboration and production of a collaborative exhibition project. Through study trips, independent research, seminars, and meetings with established professionals, and in view of enriching and strengthening their final project, participants are confronted with various curatorial formats. Presented in a professional art venue, the concluding exhibition project allows each participant to acquire the technical and conceptual skills necessary for mastering the curatorial process.

Applications are accepted between 1 April 2010 and 30 June 2010.
