Open Call
Curator team Currents

This Open Call has now closed

In 2024, Marres Maastricht and Jester in Genk (BE) jointly present the exhibition Currents 11. For this exhibition, we are looking for a team of curators (minimum two persons). Apply as a team!

Currents is a recurring group exhibition, showcasing works by recently graduated artists from art academies in Belgium, Germany, and the southern Netherlands. The exhibition will be embedded in a broader guidance trajectory in which training, networking and professionalisation are central.

With Currents, Marres, House for Contemporary Culture, acts as a platform for emerging artists and curators to contribute to an international infrastructure for talent development. Jester, house for contemporary art in Genk, also pursues this same objective. 

After 10 editions, Currents is an established platform for young artists and curators. Over the past years, 150 artists from different academies have exhibited their work, have given presentations and participated in workshops. By participating in the project, 25 promising international curators have given their careers a firm boost.

We are looking for a curator team that:

  • enjoys working closely with young artists;
  • has a good feel for production work;
  • has a keen eye on logistics and planning;
  • has good writing skills;
  • has the time in June and July 2024 to visit all the graduation shows in the Euroregion.

An honorarium and reimbursement for travel expenses will be provided. To reduce travel and accommodation costs, candidates with a residence address in the Netherlands or Belgium are preferred.

Please send your personal resumes and motivation letters as a team to currents@marres.org.
