Curatorial practice as it emerged during the twentieth century is being extensively recast. The tremendous change in the status of the object, culture, the various disciplines, information and education, implies an inevitable transformation of the curator’s role and competences. A renewed interest for curatorial practice has recently emerged within the field of architecture.

Since 2011 the CCA offers two curatorial opportunities annually: the Emerging Curator Program and the Curatorial Internships Program.

Emerging Curator Program

The Program offers the opportunity to propose and curate a project at the CCA related to contemporary debates in architecture, urban issues, landscape design, and cultural and social dynamics. The project is to be developed during a residency of 3 months at the CCA.

Curatorial Internships

With the generous support of the Power Corporation of Canada, the Curatorial Internships are designed to share the CCA’s expertise with students and recent graduates in design disciplines, arts and humanities. One or two selected candidates will have the opportunity to become acquainted with the CCA’s collection, exhibition, and research programs through a 6 to 9 month internship.
