The Asian American Women Artists Association (AAWAA) is currently accepting exhibition proposals for its Emerging Curators Program (ECP) which will culminate in two public multi-disciplinary art exhibits at community spaces in the SF Bay Area in Spring 2016. Through  a series of four (4) guided workshops and hands-on assistance, AAWAA provides mentorship and support for exhibition production from start to finish.

Designed to remove barriers to entry for would-be curators, and increase exhibition opportunities for Asian American women artists, the Emerging Curators Program is open to all curators of color of any gender who are interested in curating exhibitions featuring Asian American women artists.

  • Up to 8 images of artwork by artists to be included in the exhibition
  • Up to 3 video link urls on publicly hosted sites (i.e. YouTube, Vimeo, etc.)


  • The AAWAA ECP Committee will review all submitted proposals. Proposals will be judged primarily on the strength and clarity of curatorial concepts and feasibility of successful execution (space/time limitations, etc.)
  • One exhibition proposal with pre-selected artists and one exhibition proposal with no / few pre-selected artists will be chosen.
