Call for Curatorial Proposals

Call for Curatorial Proposals

Dear Goldsmiths & GSA Curatorial Practice Alumnus,

FLING is looking for curators to facilitate and take part in an exchange between 82 recent graduates from The Glasgow School of Art, Goldsmiths and Slade. By organising exhibitions and taking part in events we aim to share our knowledge and resources and get to know other practitioners from both cities.

FLING exists of a series of smaller curated shows under the same ‘banner’. The smaller exhibitions will take place in several venues between November 2018 and March 2019 in both Glasgow and London to give the graduates
the possibility get to know these cities by exhibiting there or working with people from those cities.

In order to make this a manageable for everyone, we wanted to ask anyone who wants to participate in this project as a curator to submit a small bio and a short 100-word ’proposal’ towards the artists of how they wish to approach such one of the exhibitions from the series. We will then ask the artists to write an interest to one or more curators. This way, we
aim to stay as inclusive as possible and would not have to ask you to read 82 biographies.

Venue and marketing costs will be provided for from a collective budget of the project. On top of that, there is a 100£ guaranteed curatorial budget available for handout printing costs, openings some discursive programming to benefit both the artists and the curator. You can apply to cover some extra costs that will be assessed by the FLING committee depending on
Artists are informed that they are responsible for their own equipment.


Still interested?

This is not a selection process! FLING is created to benefit recent master graduates from these schools. We are here to collaborate and develop your plans further to suit the project.

To participate, send us:

  • a short biography
  • a 100-word proposal briefly and pointly explaining what idea/theme you would like to work on and with what kind of artists you would like to collaborate with.
  • If you have anything to offer FLING, we are happy to know this as well!
  • Lastly, don’t forget to give us your full name, email address and potential website for further communication and inclusion on the FLING website.

Email us until October 24th noon
