H+F Curatorial Grant

2nd edition 2008/2009


FRAC Nord – Pas de Calais (F), de Appel arts
centre (NL), H + F Curatorial Grant

The "H+F Curatorial Grant" is an ambitious and original initiative
which allows the FRAC Nord–Pas de Calais (Dunkirk/France) in close
partnership with the private collector Han Nefkens (H+F Collection)
and the de Appel arts centre (Amsterdam/NL), to give young
international curators the opportunity to participate in the
development of exhibition projects based on the collection.

This grant which was launched in 2007 offers emerging art curators a
unique infrastructure and environment with free access to a research
and documentation centre as well as to one of the best French
collections of contemporary art. The FRAC acts as the first
intermediary for these future professionals of contemporary art by
helping them to develop and implement their projects.

A panel composed of Han Nefkens (H+F Collection), Ann Demeester
(Director of de Appel) and Hilde Teerlinck (Director of the FRAC
Nord-Pas de Calais) will select the new candidate. The selected person
will become part of the FRAC's team as an assistant curator,
coordinating local, national and international exhibition-projects.
The grantee selected for the period 2008-2009 will be specifically
responsible for the ArtAids project which brings together contemporary
artists from all over the world –Part of the project will be presented
in France in 2009 and will focus on creating awareness about HIV/Aids
and tackling the stigma connected with it. See

She / he will receive in exchange a grant for 18 months that will help
finance her/his living and
travel expenses.

An excellent knowledge of English is required, knowledge of French
would be helpful.
The candidate will have to install her/himself in Dunkirk for the
mentioned period.

This project has been made possible thanks to the generous support of
Han Nefkens (journalist, writer and art collector), which enables the
FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais to reinforce the development of a strong and
active policy of patronage around its activity. From 2008 onwards the
application process is open for former students of de Appel Curatorial
Programme and all aspiring young curators who wish to enhance their
expertise and further develop their skills and agilities in project
