Speed Curating at Belfast Open Studios

Belfast Exposed, The Exchange Place, 23 Donegall St, Belfast BT1 2FF

Speed Curating is back…

This is a perennially popular strand of our Get Together event and Belfast Open Studios and one that can potentially lead to all sorts of opportunities. The format offers just 15 minutes get to meet a Curator and introduce your practice. From past experience, we ask that you look at each Curator’s interests and remit carefully, making interesting and favourable comparisons. Taking the time to matchmake yields results.

The sessions are quick and snappy. We ask that you respect the next artist in the queue by leaving the table when indicated. Artists must send supporting material in advance when you book – this could be a link to your website, a personal statement etc. The clearer the support material that you bring the better. As always, we recommend that you treat this like a first date and prepare well.
