events / ICI Curatorial Residency in Budapest

Boris Kostadinov, an independent curator and an art critic based in Vienna and Sofia, has been selected to attend the inaugural Curatorial Residency organized by and ICI in Budapest, Hungary.

He was chosen from an international open call for applications which came in from 12 countries including: Argentina, Austria, Canada, Italy, Mexico, Peru, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, Ukraine, the UK, and USA.

The residency provides an opportunity to explore the local and regional art scene in Budapest and develop connections with artists, curators, and other art professionals over a three-week period in conjunction with the Off-Biennale Budapest.

Kostadinov will use the Residency to develop a two-part exhibition in Vienna and Budapest featuring Hungarian and international artists with the aim to “stimulate collaboration between artists and institutions in both cities; to present an overview of contemporary Hungarian art; to facilitate cultural exchange and dialogue; and to play an important role in the career development of young and mid-career artists from Budapest.”

He participated in the ICI Curatorial Intensive in Moscow, Developing Infrastructures for Art, in August 2014.

The jury was comprised of Patrick Urwyler (Co-Founder, and Director of Chimera-Project, Budapest), Kimberly Kitada (Public Programs & Research Coordinator, ICI and independent curator, New York), and Rona Kopeczky (Curator, Ludwig Museum, Budapest).

Boris Kostadinov

Boris Kostadinov is an independent curator based in Vienna. He received his Masters from the National Art Academy, Sofia in the Department of History and Theory of Art. His projects are in the field of contemporary art and photography, conceptual design and architecture, sound and interdisciplinary forms. They explore the interaction of art with political and geopolitical realities, economics, social processes and theories: economy of art, art as a social or activist gesture and art as a political platform. The second guideline of his work is art & technology. Such projects are defined by artistic practices that moderate relationships between elite science, future forecasts and social consciousness. He has curated recent projects for Radiator Gallery, New York; IG Bildende Kunst Gallery, Vienna; bäckerstrasse4 Gallery, Vienna; Ernst Hilger Gallery, Vienna; Haus Wittgenstein, Vienna; Stephan Stoyanov Gallery, New York; and LOOP Fair, Barcelona.
