Application Deadline: 1st July 2018.

The British Council in Turkey is delighted to launch the open call to select the curator of the third digital exhibition.

The British Council is offering an opportunity for local curatorial professionals to curate the third edition of our digital gallery ‘Museum without Walls’. The virtual gallery space has successfully hosted exhibitions of works from the British Council Collection. The selected curator will also have the opportunity to travel to the UK, work alongside experienced visual arts professionals to develop his/her exhibition concept and selection.

As the British Council we believe that the empowerment of women and achievement of gender equality are crucial to creating inclusive, open and prosperous societies. This year we initiated a three years programme to recognise and celebrate women power in arts and culture in Turkey. To learn more please visit the programmes web page.

Accordingly, the selected curator will be asked to develop an exhibition concept based on the theme of ‘Woman’ using works from the British Council Collection and also works of artists from Turkey. For this exciting new phase we are seeking an unconventional curatorial approach that would embrace different art forms such as music, film, performance, etc enhancing the exhibition visitors’ experience on the digital.
