Curate is a unique award founded by Fondazione Prada and the Qatar Museums Authority which seeks to find the latest curatorial talent. These two renowned art houses have realized the importance of having youth in the world of art and know the potential they may reach so they have created 'Curate' to support and give a stage to curators around the world.
All you have to do is curate an insightful collection using any artistic forms and media and explain to the judges how relevant and critical the exhibit is. You can enter the award by explaining your curatorial idea in a short 2 minute video as well as attaching a proposal.
Participants from around the world will be evaluated by 6 celebrated judges on their curation and curators of all ages are able to participate. They will be judged by H.E Sheikha Al-Mayassa Al-Thani, fashion designer Miuccia Prada, Rem Koolhaas, founder of The Office of Metropolitan Architecture, Arab filmmaker Nadine Labaki, artist Hans Ulrich Obrist, and Olympic Gold Medalist, Nawal El Moutawakel.
Out of the curators, 20 finalists will be chosen based on their creativity and originality with the winners work to be exhibited in both Qatar and Italy.
