Opportunities for Aspiring Curators


Fringe Arts Bath has opportunities for aspiring curators

Anyone can apply with any level of experience: students, graduates, artists. This is a local/national/international call for interest…

Fringe Arts Bath has opportunities for aspiring curators to devise and organise a show as part of the FaB festival 2014.

We are looking for challenging and fresh concepts; FaB is a good test-bed for the new, wonderful and sometimes odd. We are open to suggestions and encourage you to think outside the box!
FaB curators’ shows can include: performance, intervention, installation, multi-media and video work, photography, drawing, painting, sculpture and all disciplines in between.

Curating a show for FaB is a great chance to gain experience in this competitive field, to realise your own exhibition or event, to make new contacts and network. In past years FaB has initiated exchanges between artists and curators from Manchester, Swansea, Oxford, Bath, Poland and beyond.

Selection by committee will take place in October, those selected will be invited to attend a curator’s meeting after which your show will be advertised in our November call out to artists.

FaB can offer you admin support, practical advice through regular meetings, mentoring from past curators and exhibition space.

GET IN TOUCH AND TELL US ABOUT YOUR IDEAS! Submit a 500 word proposal detailing the underpinning themes with supporting images (optional) and CV, all formatted as PDF or Word Doc.

Deadline 18th October 2013

FaB 2013 saw our visitor numbers break 10,000 across 35 events and exhibitions housed in 8 venues in the center of the city.

Bath is located in the south west of England with good transport links and has a thriving art scene and plays host to many international festivals throughout the year; but we are the only visual arts extravaganza.
Please be aware FaB cannot offer funding at this time but can cover some expenses agreed in advanced. We are a volunteer-run registered company.

Fringe Arts Bath’s 2014 festival dates are yet to be confirmed (FaB runs for two weeks late May to early June each year).

Below find links to some of the curators’ blogs from 2013 and more information can be found on www.fringeartsbath.co.uk
