The DOMINIK MERSCH GALLERY CURATOR AWARD is focused towards aspiring and emerging curators. It invites these curators to explore their own perceptions and expertise in response to the brief provided by DMG. The award is aimed to give the curators of the future a platform for their early work and the opportunity to experience first-hand the realities of curating and realising an exhibition in a commercial gallery setting. DMG urges entering curators to explore the galleries existing idiosyncratic themes while encouraging them to express their unique narrative style.
The 2016 applications will be judged by a panel of industry judges. The winning curator will be given a show in the DMG Exhibition Calendar 2016. The curator will work with the gallery team to realise the proposed exhibition concept.
