Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo presents the
fourteenth edition of the Young Curators Residency Programme Torino
Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo announces the curators selected for the fourteenth edition of the Young Curators Residency Programme Torino (February – May 2020): Alison Karasyk (U.S.), Camille Regli (Switzerland), Katie Simpson (UK). The coordinator of the fourteenth edition is Lucrezia Calabrò Visconti.
The curators were selected by a jury composed by Andrea Viliani, Director of Madre. Museo d’arte contemporanea Donnaregina, Naples, and Alessio Antoniolli, Director of Gasworks, London.
The Young Curators Residency programme consists of a research residency in Italy that has the dual objective of developing the professional and critical skills of the young curators selected, while aiming at spreading knowledge of the Italian art scene on an international level. The residency provides the opportunity for the three selected candidates to get in contact and work with Italian artists, and furthers the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo’s commitment to the national contemporary art as well as its engagement with emerging curatorial practice. The in-depth research process, which sees the curators visiting over 200 artists’ studios, museums and art institutions across Italy under the guidance of a reference Italian curator, culminates in an exhibition curated with the support of the team of Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo. Now in its 14th edition, the Young Curators Residency programme is still a unique example in Italy and a renowned project internationally, thanks to the quality of the training provided and the outstanding practice pursued by the alumnae and alumni who, in many cases, hold prominent positions in museums and institutions.
Nominated participants are recent graduates of the most relevant international programmes for curators: The selection of participants takes place in collaboration with the most renowned international programs for curators: Royal College of Art, London; Graduate Program, Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College, New York; Curatorial Program, De Appel, Amsterdam; CuratorLab, Konstfack University of Arts, Stockholm; Independent Study Program, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; MFA Curating, Goldsmiths University of London; MA Curatorial Practice, California College of the Arts, San Francisco; MAS/CAS Curating, Zurich University of the Arts. Participants are pre-selected following the indications of the directors of the courses involved by sending a motivational letter, curriculum vitae, portfolio of previously realised projects, published or recently edited texts.
The residence lasts three months, and this year the final exhibition will take place in the spaces of the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in Guarene d’Alba. The preparation of the exhibition is preceded by the study of bibliographic material, meetings with artists, curators, gallery owners, collectors and museum directors through trips and visits to the most important cultural production centres of Turin, Milan, Venice, Bolzano, Rome, Bologna, Naples, Palermo.
