Visiting Curators Series.
Helping Quebec artists access new markets and opportunities.
Funded by the Canada Council for the Arts, ELAN’s Visiting Curators Series created links between Quebec artists and cultural centres outside Quebec, to increase career opportunities and market awareness.
For the 2017 edition, three curators from NYC and one from Toronto viewed the work of 12 artists from Montreal and West Quebec. Scroll down for bios of this year’s participating curators.
The curators presented topics on strategies for artists to get their work seen and exhibited, observations of the art markets they participate in, and their own curatorial practices at a networking event that took place on Sunday October 22, 5-8:30 PM at Parisian Laundry (3550 Saint-Antoine West; Facebook event).
The selection of artists was juried by a panel of professional art jurors who considered the quality of the artist’s work, and aimed for a broad spectrum of representation and cultural diversity in their selection.
Travel and accommodation subsidies were provided to artists chosen from the regions to attend the talk and networking event, and for those artists from West Quebec who were selected for visits with the curators.
