The 'H+F Curatorial Grant' is an ambitious and original initiative which allows the FRAC Nord–Pas de Calais (Dunkirk/France) in close partnership with the private collector Han Nefkens (H+F Collection) and the De Appel arts centre (Amsterdam/NL), to give young international curators the opportunity to participate in the development of exhibition projects based on the collection of FRAC Nord-Pas-de-Calais.

This grant, which was launched in 2007, offers emerging art curators a unique infrastructure and environment with free access to a research and documentation centre as well as to one of the best French collections of contemporary art. The FRAC acts as an extra-ordinary framework for these future professionals of contemporary art by helping them to develop and implement their projects.

Irène Aristizábal (Colombia/Spain) was selected by a panel composed of Han Nefkens (H+F Collection), Ann Demeester (Director of De Appel) and Hilde Teerlinck (Director of the FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais) as the new candidate.

She will become part of the FRAC's team as an assistant curator, coordinating local, national and international exhibition-projects and bringing a fresh view on the collection as well as on the development project of the future FRAC.

The FRAC is supported by : le Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication, le Conseil Régional Nord-Pas de Calais, Dunkerque Grand Littoral/Communauté urbaine, la Ville de Dunkerque, les Conseils Généraux Nord et Pas-de-Calais et le rectorat de l'Académie de Lille.
