Curators' Incubator

Exhibition on View:  May 17 - June 23, 2018

May 17, 2018: Curators' Incubator Opening Reception

Maryland Art Place (MAP) is excited to restore the Curators’ Incubator program, slated to open May of 2018.  MAP established Curators’ Incubator in 2004 as a platform for aspiring curators to grow. In this program, MAP’s gallery is made available to an emerging curator or curatorial team to develop a creative, curatorial vision as part of a mentored partnership initiative. The program provides approximately 2,200 square feet of gallery space in downtown Baltimore, located within the Bromo Arts District.

Curators' Incubator proposals are currently being reviewed by MAP's staff and Programming Advisory Committee (PAC) this November, 2017. After the initial review of proposals, up to five curators will be selected for advancement to phase two of the application process where they will be required to formally present and expand upon their proposal to the PAC in November.
