Currents #8: call for curators

Marres and Z33 are looking for a team of curators (minimum two persons) for the eight edition of Currents, an annual 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.

We are looking for curators who

  • enjoy working closely with young artists
  • have a good feel for production work
  • have a keen eye on logistics and planning
  • have good writing skills
  • have the time in June and July 2020 to visit all the graduation shows in the Euroregion

A fee and compensation for travel expenses are provided. In order to limit the costs for travel and lodging, we prefer candidates with a local address in the Netherlands or Belgium.


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

Currents, by Marres en Z33

With Currents, Z33 (House for Contemporary Art, Design & Architecture, Hasselt) and Marres (House for contemporary culture, Maastricht), act as a Euregional platform to launch the careers of emerging artists and curators. Both houses contribute to an international infrastructure for talent development. After seven editions, Currents is a secure platform for young artists and curators. Over the past years, more than a hundred artists from 12 academies have exhibited their work, given presentations, and participated in workshops. In addition, almost twenty young international curators have boosted their careers by producing one of the Currents editions.
