In the spirit of creating a preview-map of what will be of relevance in the context of contemporary debate in the arts in 2019-2020, and thus collecting ongoing curatorial concepts/activities/proposals in this two year period from the international curators present at the meeting, the 9th CEI Venice Forum for Contemporary Art Curators will be held at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice on Thursday 9th May 2019, 2:30 – 6:30 pm.

Since 2003 the Venice Forum has been a CEI Feature Event, under the patronage of the Central European Initiative. It is a biennial moment of encounter and exchange of curatorial practices among curators of contemporary art in Central Eastern Europe. The 2019 Forum will bring together national commissioners of the Biennale, museum directors, international art curators, contemporary art organisers, young curators and key figures for contemporary art institutions.

The Forum will consist of a series of contributions (in English, 10 minutes) in which speakers will tell the audience from which point of view they are looking at the facts of today's contemporary art and will explain why, in their opinion, this point of view is important to deal with nowadays. They will also point what they consider currently effervescible, what are significant new trends.

As a part of 2019 CEI Venice Forum activities, Trieste Contemporanea launches a CALL FOR YOUNG CURATORS, which is open until 21st April 2019, in view of selecting 6 young curators willing to participate as speakers in the Forum and give the audience their views on the art world to come.
If participating in the selection interests you, send us the following by April 21st, 2019:
-- an ABSTRACT of an art initiative that you are organising in 2019 or that you would like to organise in the period 2019-2020 (max 500 words + some images of the works by artists involved).
