With the generous support of Inlaks Shivdasani Foundation, Mumbai Art Room is happy to hold its second open call addressed to artists and curators all across India. We are inviting project proposals that comprise a collaboration between an artist and a curator to be realised in the form of an exhibition. While the strength of individual portfolios will be taken into account, our interest is primarily in what you will do in coming together and how that is informed by, while simultaneously departing from, what you could do, as artist or curator, on your own. This will typically require an awareness of what you bring to the table by way of your own practices and preoccupations, as well as an understanding of each other’s work. In preparing to work together, we ask that you re-assess, amongst yourselves, the terms implicit in the artist-curator contract. What do you expect from each other? What function do you feel you ought to perform? To whom are you responsible? To what are you committed? Why? If it were up to you, would you redefine the rules of engagement between the figure of the artist and the role of the curator? How would this redefinition expand the notion of exhibition-making? What implications would that have, if any, for the question of authorship? (We do not expect you to answer these questions directly. Deem them prompts for you to play with and allow them to inspire the shared ground of your thinking. In your proposal, we want you to tell us what you will do and how you plan to go about doing it. It is important, wherever possible, that you indicate what labour will be shared and also how labour will be divided. (Intellectual labour, like of writing, included.) You may choose, for example, to work more or less independently towards your own objectives, acknowledging that what binds you together, as artist and curator, is simply the space and time of the exhibition. We are open to all forms of artistic and curatorial practice from within the contemporary art context, and are ultimately concerned with what can happen at the place where your trajectories intersect.
THE SELECTED ARTIST AND CURATOR WILL RECEIVE :
A 10 weeks exhibition at Mumbai Art Room
An artist fee and a curator fee of INR 10,000 each
An exhibition budget of up to INR 70,000
Mumbai Art Room will provide critical engagement towards the conceptual development of the project and logistical support towards the production of the exhibition. We will oversee expenditures and do our best with press coverage.
