Curator and artistic director of the Serpentine Galleries, London, Hans Ulrich Obrist, and curator and director of Swiss Institute New York, Simon Castets, in collaboration with OCA, will launch an open call for practitioners based in Norway – and born after 1989 – working in the fields of poetry, literature, film, dance, architecture, design, art, science and technology. Applicants should submit their candidacy to the long-term, international, multi-platform research project, 89plus.
On the basis of these applications, the curators will select a group of practitioners to participate in a workshop in Oslo in November 2017. From this group, a final selection will be invited to participate in future 89plus projects, including exhibitions, residencies and publications. The curators will give a public lecture at OCA discussing the 89plus project in general, as well as the results of their research in Norway in particular.
Submissions to 89plus are accepted on an ongoing basis via 89plus.com/submit.
Applications for the Norway workshop will close on 28 October 2017.
89plus is a long-term, international, multi-platform research project co-founded by curators Simon Castets and Hans Ulrich Obrist, investigating the generation of innovators born in or after 1989. Without forecasting artistic trends or predicting future creation, 89plus is expressed through panels, books, periodicals, exhibitions and residencies, bringing together individuals from a generation whose voices are only starting to be heard, yet which accounts for almost half the world’s population.
