Curate opens up and challenges people’s ideas of what an exhibition can be. It will provide one winner with the unprecedented opportunity to curate their own exhibition, the exhibition of their dreams.
A world-renowned Jury will judge ideas on their creativity and social significance, rewarding those with a contemporary and culturally relevant point of view. They will be looking for an exemplary exhibition that is both far-sighted and critical to the future. Participation in the competition is not limited to aspiring or established curators, but is open to anyone with a great concept for creative expression, with the emphasis on encouraging young people to compete, whether as individuals or as collaborative groups.
Twenty finalists will be selected by the Jury, and will be showcased on the Curate website, giving an opportunity to the public to vote on their favourite project.
The Jury is: Her Excellency Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad Al-Thani, Chairperson, Qatar Museums Authority; Miuccia Prada, President, Fondazione Prada; Rem Koolhaas, architect, urban theorist, founder, OMA; Nadine Labaki, Lebanese film-maker and actress; Nawal El Moutawakel, the first woman from a Muslim majority country to win an Olympic gold medal; and Hans Ulrich Obrist, co-director, Serpentine Gallery, London.
International call for proposals open to anyone with a great concept for an exhibition.
