Open call for artists and curators for Extra City, 2017–19
Call for projects: Extra City, 2017–19
Application deadline: October 14, 2016
Extra City is a Kunsthal that finds inspiration in the city for depicting different visions of our future, by encouraging new links between contemporary (inter)national art and artists, researchers, and city dwellers. The full mission and vision can be found here.
Last year, Extra City Kunsthal in Antwerp updated its mission and renewed its structure. From 2017 onwards, it will be coordinated by a director who will carry out the concrete implementation of the programme together with a small team of (international) curators and artists, each for a maximum period of three years.
In that context, Extra City is launching an open call for project proposals to be realised during 2017–19. Applicants can submit a proposal for a one-off project or for a long-term, intensive collaboration via a segment of the programme or a project spread over a maximum of three years.
The submitted projects can be very diverse: we welcome proposals for exhibitions, creations, public programmes, workshops, lecture series, debates, research, film screenings, performances, reflective works, publications, discursive projects or completely new formats.
The proposals must align with the new mission and vision of the organisation, but it has been a conscious choice to provide very little in the way of limitations or concrete direction at this stage. We are instead giving voice to curators and artists, in order to create from the submitted proposals a sharp, urgent, varied, and pre-eminent programme for the coming years.
An international jury will make a selection of the submitted projects for further elaboration and realisation.
Submission deadline for project proposal: Friday, October 14, 8pm
