Fire Station, a contemporary art space in Doha, Qatar, has announced a bi-annual open call for an International Curator in Residence. The residency lasts for three months and includes a workspace at a minimalist building that dates back to 1982, first used for civil defence and later occupied by the fire brigade until 2012, when it was made into a contemporary art space. The curator program also includes participation in Open Studio events and public programs and provides the participant with the chance to organize exhibitions during their residency.
The program is open to those based outside of Qatar but those enrolled in academic programs (excluding doctoral programs) are not eligible. The residency offers a good variety of additional support, including a round-trip ticket, off-site accommodation, and a monthly per diem. The participant will also have unlimited access to a private, furnished workspace, social media coverage, and networking opportunities and interactive sessions with artists and visiting critics.
