CALL FOR CURATORS: 2019 exhibitions

Brooklyn Art Cluster is an art organization committed to building creative environments for curators and artists alike. We focus on supporting collaborations between curators and artists to share inspirations and expand networks for the development of their works and career. Our two locations offer residency and curatorial programs, long-term workspaces, exhibitions and various art projects with 18 work studios, a gallery and a project space.

The selected curators will be offered an exhibition space, opening reception and online and off-line promotions. We accept proposals of group shows, solo shows and other art events except for self-curated solo show. The date of exhibitions and other details will be determined after discussion with each selected curator.
