Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts is now accepting applications from national and international curators for its 2022-2023 Curator-in-Residence Program. Beginning January 2022, the successful candidate will participate in an 18-month fully subsidized live/work residency as part of Bemis Center’s acclaimed Artist-in-Residence Program.

The Curator-in-Residence will have space and freedom to work on research and curatorial projects independent of his/her/their exhibition at Bemis.
Competitive applicants will possess a strong knowledge of national and international contemporary art and a genuine interest in researching and responding to cultural production in Omaha and the region. The Curator-in-Residence will also serve as a professional resource for local artists and arts professionals, and as an ambassador of Bemis Center in the community. S/he/they will be an integral member of Bemis Center’s Artist-in-Residence Program, stimulating intellectual discourse surrounding contemporary art practice through studio visits, knowledge-sharing workshops, and other organized programs with fellow artists-in-residence. Working closely with the curatorial team, the Curator-in-Residence will be involved in all curatorial and administrative aspects of organizing one exhibition after the conclusion of the residency. Exhibition will be original, conceptually rigorous, and exemplify the true breadth and experimentation currently defining contemporary art. The exhibition dates are tentatively scheduled for December 2023-March 2024.
