Young talent hoping to forge a career in curating have a deadline approaching.
This September, the New York-based non-profit No Longer Empty is launching the NLE Curatorial Lab, an affordable, hands-on alternative to other curatorial training programs. The application deadline is tomorrow.
Under supervision from the NLE Lab’s curators Manon Slome and Sara Reisman, all three participants will partake in studio visits, workshops, and lectures with area arts professionals. The main goal, however, will be the development and execution of an exhibition held at an abandoned beauty salon in the heart of Chinatown.
We recommend applying for this program for two reasons: one, Sara Reisman, the director of New York City’s One Percent program is amongst the most knowledgeable curators working in the city. Any professional training you can glean from her is worth its price in gold. Two, relative to ICI’s Curatorial Intensive, a week-long series that lets you hone your curatorial skills by hobnobbing with the world’s top-ranked curators in global destinations like Istanbul, Johannesburg, and of course, New York, this program promises hands on experience. That’s going to be important to the three people chosen for this program.
And seeing as how there are only three slots available, if you haven’t started the application, now’s the time to do so.
