Curators’ Incubator

Curators’ Incubator 

Established in 2003, Curators’ Incubator was developed to assist aspiring curators in developing and presenting an exhibition at Maryland Art Place. This annual program provides a creative space for the region’s emerging curators to develop and present their concepts.

Selected through a competitive two-phase application process, curators with limited or no previous experience are asked to submit an exhibition proposal to be considered for debut in MAP’s galleries. The selected curators or curatorial team then participate in a year, long mentorship program. This mentorship helps curators refine their vision; from laying out the show, to artists’ selection and feedback on their curatorial statements. The program culminates in an online exhibition publication. The publication is often the emerging curators first public platform for critical writing.
