Opportunity: No Longer Empty Curatorial Lab

Opportunity: No Longer Empty Curatorial Lab

The No Longer Empty Curatorial Lab (NLE Lab) is a professional development program giving curators an opportunity to build upon their existing knowledge and gain first-hand experience and support in developing, staging and evaluating a site-responsive exhibition. 


This program, expanding upon No Longer Empty's mission, offers curators a new platform for debate, exploration, and experimentation in curatorial practices. The NLE Lab reinforces the role of the curator and encourages new interdisciplinary projects with special emphasis on site-specific practice and community engagement.


No Longer Empty’s supportive networks and the vast creative environments in New York City provide participants with the resources to deeply explore and develop new curatorial concepts. These 21st century curators will emerge with the tools to conduct community research and engagement, work adeptly with artists, be communicative and collaborative, and create welcoming contemporary art experiences for visitors.


The program is open to local and international emerging curators. We encourage students from related disciplines to apply.  



Next Session: Fall 2014 (mid-September - December)


Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Deadline is August 22, 2014.

Application guidelines are available here: How To Apply.
