Curatorial Programme

The 27th edition of de Appel’s Curatorial Programme will open soon. For information please contact Curatorial Programme coordinator Liza Nijhuis.

Up to six participants are chosen by a jury of leaders in their field. They will join a strong network of alumni and advisors who continue to transform the social life of art. People from different social and cultural backgrounds are invited to bring their knowhow and experience to the table, where they will learn from each other and from the leaders in their chosen field.

Over the last 25 years, CP alumni have gone on to lead and to found world-renowned and locally grounded initiatives; many have made strides as curators of biennials and signature exhibitions, and as the artistic directors of the last and the next editions of documenta. De Appel’s CP now aims to nurture a new generation of curators who are allies of artists and builders of institutions. At stake is the role of art as a space and time to pose vital questions—to pause, to reflect, to deliberate in our rapidly evolving and increasingly polarized society. Defending such a space-time for a broader public sphere takes great resourcefulness and organizational agility. It also involves imagination, wisdom and joy.

de Appel’s Curatorial Programme is supported by the Stichting Hartwig Foundation.
