JCE BIENNIAL 2011/2013: ARTISTS SELECTION’S PROCEDURES IN THE JCE NETWORK
The next JCE biennial will be inaugurated in Montrouge on October 14th 2011. The itinerary of exhibitions all around Europe will last until 2013. To be selected to participate you have to be a young artist (less than 35 years old), living in one of the 10 partner countries of the JCE network:, Austria, France, Germany, Holland, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Portugal, Slovakia and Spain.
The selection process is realised during 1 year and closed on May 30th 2011.
An independent curator is appointed by each partner country; he is the intermediary for the selection at a national scale. To make the selection more representative of the local creation, each partner has developed its own selection procedure, which has been approved by the JCE Network. So, according to the referral country, the artist’s selection has been done, for example:
Ø By an open call and a pre-selection for a national exhibition. A professional jury chooses the artists of final selection.
Ø Through a call for application in the national network of Fine-Arts schools, leading to a final choice made by a professional selection committee.
Ø Through open application: artists send their project, and the final selection is be made by a professional committee.
Here is presented, country by country, the selection process procedures to apply to the next JCE biennial… for more information, please contact us at: email@example.com
