pdf print

The Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) launches its Curatorial Opportunities beginning in Fall 2014. The opportunities include a Curatorial Internship Program and the Emerging Curator Program. Applications are open until 28 April 2014.

As an international research centre and museum, the CCA is a laboratory for the exploration of key issues affecting contemporary architecture and its social and cultural context. Now celebrating its twenty-five years, the CCA conceives and hosts an extensive program of exhibitions, research opportunities, curatorial programs, publications and public events that establish links between its vast collection, contemporary architectural practice and social change.

Aiming to continuously rethink and re-examine the scope and the boundaries of “curating architecture”, the CCA solicits applications that will contribute to innovating curatorial approaches. The initiative aims to reinforce the CCA’s expertise and leadership in architectural curatorial practice. By hosting these programs for the fourth year, the CCA recognizes curatorial practice as an emerging critical component of the architectural profession and a complement to academic programs.

Emerging Curator Program

This Program offers the opportunity to propose and curate a project at the CCA related to the contemporary debate in architecture, urban issues, landscape design, and cultural and social dynamics during a residency of 3 months at the CCA. The selected candidate will become acquainted with the CCA’s institutional knowledge and vision, explore the institution’s resources and the collection holdings, and apply her/his curatorial direction to develop the proposed project.

Curatorial Internships

This Program is designed to share the CCA’s expertise with students and young professionals in architecture, the design disciplines, arts, and humanities, who are committed to exploring the editorial and curatorial fields in architecture. Selected candidates will have the opportunity to work closely with the CCA curatorial team in the development of current projects – including exhibitions, collection acquisitions, publications and research programs – through a six- to nine-month internship beginning Fall 2014. This Program receives the generous support of the Power Corporation of Canada.
