BICI: Curatorial Futures


The Banff International Curatorial Institute (BICI) Curatorial Futures program will explore alternative realities for curatorial practice in a transformational world.  In response to the current social, political, ecological, economic, and global health situation we find ourselves in, this program will question and discuss recent shifts in the art world; unconventional and innovative artistic/curatorial platforms and structures; how we engage with technology; the shift toward local from global; and the systemic changes that need happen in the field to create more equitable ways of working for communities, artists, and curators. 


Throughout a period of four weeks, participants will connect with faculty who will share their knowledge, experience, and predictions, participate in discussion and debate, and engage with each other and build networks.  Participants are asked to write a 1500 word text around the program theme to be shared as a free digital PDF through the BICI program website.  Faculty will work one-on-one with each participant to provide feedback on their work, and participants will receive a writer’s fee of $1,000 CAD upon completion.  


The Banff International Curatorial Institute  (BICI) encompasses a range of activities including events, residencies, symposia, and publications.  A program of the Walter Phillips Gallery, BICI provides discursive, research, and writing based programs for curators, arts writers, theorists, artists, and academics to explore curatorial pedagogy, practice, and criticism. BICI’s long history of publications and writings on curatorial practice include Naming a Practice: Curatorial Strategies for the Future (1996); Beyond the Box: Diverging Curatorial Practices (2003); Making A Noise! Aboriginal Perspectives on Art, Art History, Critical Writing and Community (2005); Raising Frankenstein: Curatorial Education and Its Discontents (2008); and Great Expectations: Prospects for the Future of Curatorial Education (2016). 


What does the program offer?

This program offers dedicated feedback and mentorship to develop your curatorial writing, financial support through 100% tuition scholarship, and an opportunity to share your work.  The program cohort will be small so that online discussion can be easily facilitated.  Participants should be prepared to submit their completed text prior to the end of the program, and will receive $1000 commission on completion. Please see the Itinerary section for an approximation of the program schedule.  


What length of residency is available?

This program requires a dedicated commitment over a period of 4 weeks with the understanding that absence from weekly synchronous activities will be minimal. Alternative program dates cannot be considered.


Who should apply?

This program is open to individual independent curators exploring topics pertinent to the program theme, within the field of contemporary art. 


Applicants should have an established exhibition/publication record, have completed formal training in visual arts at the post-secondary level, or equivalent experience and recognition from their peers. 

Program Dates: September 28 - October 24, 2020

Application Deadline: August 26, 2020
