Open call for curator sound art
Open call: Curator for ‘Sound Art in Public Spaces’
With Sound Art in Public Spaces: reinventing public space (for all) several European festivals investigate how people from different backgrounds interpret public space and to what extent it is (in)accessible to them. We invite five artists to take a critical look at how the public space is perceived for and by various groups in a society under unprecedented pressure, as a result of this health crisis. What has been the most important function of public space throughout this pandemic? And (how) should it shift in a postpandemic future? How can we, as a society, reinvent public space if we want it to be an inclusive and equal environment for humans, regardless of their income, place of residence, gender, age, cultural or religious background?
Their sound art installation will be presented by 5 partners of Sounds Now at their according festival:
• Wilde Westen (BELGIUM) - October 2021
• November Music (THE NETHERLANDS) - 5-14 November 2021
• SPOR festival (DENMARK) - 2022
• Onassis Stegi (GREECE) - 2022
• Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival (NORWAY) – 2022
For this project, we are looking for a curator.
Applications (CV, motivation letter with artistic proposal and examples of artists that illustrate your curatorial preferences, references...) should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org before February 28 2021.
