World of Art calls new students

SCCA Ljubljana launches call for application for the new cycle of their educational programme World of Art.

The World of Art, school for curators and critics of contemporary art would like to offer to future curators, critics and all who are interested in working in the field of contemporary art experience and skills needed to deal with different aspects of the art world.

Due to increasingly complex program, aimed to allow participants to obtain a broader knowledge, the curriculum of this year is expanded. The first semester (November 2011 – June 2012) is focused on acquiring art-historical, theoretical and methodological knowledge and the second semester (September 2012 – April 2013) on curatorial and critical studies and testing in practice.

The school’s program includes a wide range of lectures, seminars, workshops, research work, curator practical work modules, study trips at home and abroad (a one-day excursion to Graz, Celje and Maribor, and a five-day excursion to Krakow and Zurich) as well as a traineeship in the galleries. The process consists of organising events, studio visits, meetings with curators, artists, theorists, writers and teamwork in conceptualisation and the exhibition of contemporary art under the mentorship.

A group of participants will be selected by tender. Anyone can submit an application, regardless of experience, age and education.

Those interested should send:
· completed online application form,
· CV,
· letter of motivation,
· a brief review of a contemporary art exhibition (up to 40 lines)
in electronic form to the e-mail or posted to SCCA-Ljubljana, Metelkova 6, SI-1000 Ljubljana.

Fee: EUR 500.

Candidates, shortlisted based on the sent material, will be invited for an interview, which is expected to be held on 26 and 27 October 2011.
Call is opened until October 11th, and further information can be found here.
