Based in New York, No Longer Empty is a nonprofit that engages unique spaces and local communities through art. Among its many projects, the NLE Curatorial Lab (NLE Lab) is a professional development program for emerging curators and arts professionals interested in direct experience curating in an expanded field.
This fall, the NLE Lab is partnering with York College Fine Arts Gallery on the inaugural Southeast Queens Biennial, which will take place in Jamaica, Queens. The conceptual framework of the biennial is southeast Queens itself. Its diverse voices and artistic and cultural ties to the local and global community will become central to the experience of the Southeast Queens Biennial.
Applications are currently open to participate in co-curating this new biennial. NLE Lab seeks applicants who wish to deepen their curatorial practice and contribute to No Longer Empty’s mission of curating site-responsive and community-centered exhibitions. Local, national, and international candidates are all welcome to apply.
With a focus on research, project-based learning, and collaboration, NLE Lab is designed to deepen an understanding of the development of exhibitions and related programming within a distinctly urban setting. The program includes a curriculum of critical readings, guest speakers, site/historical research, studio/exhibition visits, and incorporates community engagement as a fundamental component in the formation of curatorial themes. The 2017 session will be led by Rachel Gugelberger, NLE Curator and Director of NLE Lab.
The application for the 2017 Fall NLE Lab can be found on nolongerempty.org.
