The Curate Award

Date uploaded: December 4, 2013

Curate, an award launched by Fondazione Prada and the Qatar Museums Authority, is a global search for curatorial talent.

The competition recognises that we are all curators. Everything we choose and collect to surround us has meaning. Great curatorial expressions and ideas on how to exhibit can be communicated in all artistic forms and media, by anyone, whether in the art world or not. Participation in the competition is not limited to aspiring or established curators; anyone with a great concept is encouraged to enter.

A jury will judge ideas on their creativity and social importance, rewarding those with a contemporary and culturally relevant point of view. They will be looking for a exhibition that is both far-sighted and critical of the future. The jury will select 20 finalists from which the overall winner will be decided.

The winning curatorial idea will be realised in an exhibition in either or (but not limited to) Qatar and Italy. There are no limits to the form or language in which your curatorial concept can be realised. Your exhibition can include any media. Enter the award by explaining your curatorial idea in a short video. Click here to upload your proposal.

No previous experience required.

Organised by Qatar Museums Authority and Fondazione Prada.
