La Galerie, Contemporary Art Centre
the residency programme for a foreign curator

call for applications

La Galerie, a Contemporary Art Centre located in the suburbs of Paris,
hosts each year a foreign curator in residence for a period of three
months. First organised in 2006, the aim of the residency is to put on an
exhibition at La Galerie within the context of an art centre, and to meet
artists and professionals working in the contemporary art field in France.
In 2010, exhibition proposals will have to deal with the city as an image.
The selected exhibition proposal will be part of the “Art Grandeur Nature”
biennial in Seine-Saint-Denis department.

Free accommodation is provided (including costs of electricity, gas,
internet, phone and transport) in a 65 m2 flat in the centre of
Noisy-le-Sec (10 minutes by train from Paris + 15 minutes walk). The flat
includes a bedroom, a living room/kitchen and a workspace. In addition
there is a cellar connected to the flat.

A total budget of 25,000 € is provided by the art centre to cover artists'
and curator’s travel costs, the curator’s fee (3000 €), transport of art
works, insurance costs, production costs, publicity(invitations, flyers,
poster, etc), the publication of a 16 page bilingual French/ English
leaflet and of a 12 page leaflet for children.

In addition to the residency period, a one-week stay will be paid to the
curator in order to supervise the installation of the works in the
exhibition space and to attend the opening of the exhibition.

Each candidate must submit an exhibition proposal which he/she would be
able to implement with the help of La Galerie's team. In addition, the
curator would be required to:

- Take into consideration the general artistic programme of La Galerie
- Propose an exhibition that deals in some ways with the city as an image
- Have an interest in the French art scene
- Engage as much as possible with the context of the art centre and
participate actively in public talks and events organised by La Galerie
- Write an introductory text and accompanying texts on the works for the
press release and the exhibition leaflet.

To facilitate communication with the La Galerie team and the public, the
curator should speak French or English.

The application should contain:
- The curator’s CV/résumé with his/her name, address, phone and e-mail
- An exhibition proposal (2 pages maximum, excluding images), explaining
the idea behind the exhibition. In addition it should provide a list of
artists with a short text about each artist (5 lines max) and one picture
for each artist.
