Announces its Open Call for CPR 2016: South America
The CURATORIAL PROGRAM FOR RESEARCH (CPR) is pleased to announce its open call for curators for its second fully funded research program, which will take place in cities across South America in May 2016. 
CPR 2016: South America will occur over the course of 20 days across Bogotá, Medellín, Santiago de Chile, and Buenos Aires. Hosted by local institutions, each program gathers a cohort of ten curators, and stresses both academic rigor and on-site research. Each city features a specialized curriculum, which includes readings and lectures about local socio-political history, arts, and culture. These are complemented by daily visits to artist studios and local arts institutions. Following the trip, each curator is asked to submit a proposal for a project in his/her home city; one winning proposal will be awarded funds for its production.


For application guidelines and further information, please visit 
Both independent curators and those with institutional affiliations may apply; only applicants with two+ years of professional experience will be considered. A jury comprised of CPR's executive board as well as local CPR hosts (Carolina Castro Jorquera / Santiago de Chile, Marina Reyes Franco / Buenos Aires, Emiliano Valdés / Medellín) will select the participants.

The Curatorial Program for Research partners with local arts initiatives in each of its host cities and creates a professional support structure with an international scope. Our programs seek to expand the boundaries of current curatorial practice, and facilitate an international exchange of ideas. This program's partners include:
CPR is the core facilitator of an international network of curators, artists and institutions. Through open calls and full research scholarships, CPR has three goals: first, to enable a direct, in situ communication between international curators and local artists. Secondly, to promote equal access to knowledge. And third, to act as a platform for promotion and practice for the participating curators and hosts.
With a nomadic and intensive format, CPR promotes dialogue between international curators and local artistic scenes. The program was created by curators and for curators, and is a non-profit international organization based in Indianapolis, USA, with satellite locations in more than 12 cities throughout the world.
Applications are due January 5, 2016

Applicants will be notified by February 1, 2016
