Context Gallery International Curatorial Residency Program Derry, Northern Ireland Deadline for expressions of interest: 22nd May, 2010 Context Gallery offers an opportunity for an individual curator to visit Northern Ireland to research contemporary visual art produced in Northern Ireland and the North West of Ireland and to build contacts with local artists/curators and galleries. The selected individual will develop an international curatorial project with the Context Gallery being one of the host venues for the show in 2011. It is envisaged that the resulting project would involve a minimum of 50% participants working in the north of Ireland. This pilot programme is open to all individual curators worldwide with professional experience in organizing and curating projects based in contemporary visual arts. The residency is set up with open travel periods based over a six-month period with a budget for travel, accommodations and a research fee. Travel arrangements will be agreed between the individual and the gallery but it is envisaged that there would be between two and three trips made to Northern Ireland to allow for the necessary research to be carried out. In addition the selected individual would be requested to give a lecture or workshops during one of the research visits.
