Curatorial Intensive in Bangkok

Program Dates: October 22–28, 2018

APPLICATION DEADLINE EXTENDED: August 15, 2018


ICI presents the inaugural Curatorial Intensive in Bangkok, Thailand, developed in partnership with the Faculty of Fine and Applied Arts at Chulalongkorn University to coincide with the launch of its international postgraduate program in Curatorial Practice, and with the James H.W. Thompson Foundation.

Focusing on the regional context of the rapidly expanding contemporary art landscape in Bangkok, participants will engage with key practitioners, curators, and artists, active in the city and internationally.

The Curatorial Intensive, a weeklong professional development program, is designed to immerse participants in a rigorous schedule of seminars, presentations, site visits, and one-on-one meetings that support the process of developing an idea for a project into a full proposal. It is a unique opportunity to forge a close network of peers and embark on future collaborations. This program is targeted toward self-motivated individuals at an early stage in their career, working independently or within institutions.

Seminars, site visits, individual meetings, and roundtable discussions will be led by a group of professionals that includes: Remco de Blaaij (Director, Artspace, New Zealand), Zoe Butt (Artistic Director, The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre, Ho Chi Minh City), Gridthiya Gaweewong (Artistic Director, Jim Thompson Art Center, Bangkok), Mami Kataoka (Chief Curator, Mori Art Museum, Tokyo), Renaud Proch (Executive Director, ICI), and Mari Spirito (Founding Director, Protocinema, Istanbul), David Teh ( Assistant Professor in the Department of English Language and Literature at the National University of Singapore) among others.


Application Guidelines
10–12 applicants working internationally will be selected to participate in the Curatorial Intensive. The applicant must have 3+ years of curatorial experience.
