Young Curators Residency Program 青年策展人驻地计划
The Young Curators Residency programme consists of a research residency in Italy and Spain that has the dual objective of developing the professional and critical skills of the young curators selected, while aiming at spreading knowledge of the Italian and Spanish art scene on an international level. The residency provides the opportunity for the three selected candidates to get in contact and work with local artists, and furthers the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo (FSRR)’s commitment to the national contemporary art as well as its engagement with emerging curatorial practice. In 2020 a collaboration was established between the Rockbund Art Museum and the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, which, through the establishment of a curatorial committee responsible for the nominations, proposed candidates from Asia. This project marks the first time the foundation has extended its acclaimed curatorial initiative to focus on improving visibility and awareness to young curators specifically from Asia to the residency program. From 2020, the committee – coordinated by Michele Bertolino and Xu Tiantian – is composed of Sabih Ahmed, Merv Espina, Esther Lu, Alia Swastika, Weiwei Wang, and X Zhu-Nowell.
