Komisariotza programa. Prentsaurrekoa = Programa de comisariado. Rueda de prensa = Curating program. Press conference

Tabakalera has presented its Curating Program this morning. Ane Rodríguez Armendariz, cultural director of Tabakalera, has explained that the program is aimed to create a meeting place for curatorial practices, writing and reaserch in exhibition formats, Tabakalera opens a call for people who want to start, or have recently started, to develop projects in those fields. The main objective of this program is to offer support and assistance to those who want to start their career in this field during the development process of a curatorial project, or to whom have already started to do so; and at the same time, getting to know agents who are working in this field through sessions that will be held in Sukaldea (Tabakalera).

From April to June six intensive sessions will take place every Friday. Our guests will share their expertise through presentations, workshop and/or exercises focused on different approaches to curatorial practices. Haizea Barcenilla, co-coordinator of Curating Programme, listed some of the topics that will be discussed during the sessions: critic, writing and testing; management practices and cultural production; curatorial models in relation to the format and the different degrees of involvement with the institution; Curator's relationship with the artist, etc. To do this, we will have professional guest curators, artists, critics and cultural managers.

This proposal is part of the activities of Creator’s Office where Tabakalera supports the work of creators and strength the professionalization of artistic practices.
