Ever wish you could get a chance to sit down with a curator to introduce yourself and show them your work? At Speed Curating there’ll be 40 of the top curators in Ireland waiting for you to do just that.
You will have the chance to read about the curators in the programme before you book and decide who you want to meet. On the day you’ll have 10 minutes to talk about what you’re working on, how you think you could work together or just introduce them to your practice. You can show them your work, the best way is to bring a laptop, or you can bring small originals or hardcopies. It’s a fast paced but friendly environment.
It’s a chance for curators to meet artists they might never have come across or to see new bodies of work in development. Multiple exhibtions and working relationships have developed from Speed Curating, and everyone walks away feeling the benefit of having discussed their practice with fellow professionals.
40 curators taking part in Ireland’s National Day for Visual Artists is a singular opportunity that comes around only once a year. It sells out fast so try to book early.
