The Moderna galerija / Museum of Modern Art, Ljubljana, invites curators to enter for the third Igor Zabel Competition

The winning project will be realized in April 2010 at the Mala galerija (Slovenska cesta 35).

The Igor Zabel Competition is dedicated to innovative curatorial approaches and theoretical research in contemporary visual arts. Igor Zabel, a curator at the Moderna galerija for many years, stressed the dialogic relationship, the heterogeneity of the identity, the transparency, and the contextual determination of a curator’s position. The winning project of 2008 was You Own Me Now Until You Forget About Me, by curators Birgit Rinagl and Franz Thalmair, and in 2009, Darcy Lange: Work Studies 1974-77, by the curator Mercedes Vicente.

Your entry must include:

  • a description of the proposed project,
  • a concept of the show or an outline of a short catalogue essay,
  • your biographical data,
  • a financial break-down of the costs,
  • and visual documentation.

(The documentation will not be returned.)

Please send your entries by regular mail to Moderna galerija, Tomšičeva 14, SI-1000 Ljubljana, Slovenia,
by 1 March 2010, with the annotation “For Igor Zabel Competition” on the envelope.

The proposals will be reviewed by an international panel, and the selection announced by 15 March 2010.
