As part of Valletta International Visual Arts (VIVA), the Valletta 2018 Foundation in collaboration with St James Cavalier Centre for Creativity, through an open call, the Valletta 2018 Foundation will be hosting Dutch emerging curators Lennard Dost, Mare van Koningsveld and Suzanne Wallinga in Valletta between 24th August and 7th September 2014. These curators will be in Malta to conduct initial research on Maltese contemporary art, with the aim of proposing an exhibition involving Maltese and international artists in 2015.
During their stay, they would like to meet visual artists based in Malta in order to discuss their art practice and ideas and the possibility of including their work in the 2015 exhibition. Meetings will generally be held at St James Cavalier in Valletta though some studio visits are also possible. Applications for meeting these curators are now closed. Selected artists will be notified by 4th August, 2014. Meetings with curators-in-residence are free of charge, but artists will be selected by the curators themselves on the basis of the quality of their work and ideas.
