About Curators’ Network
Curators’ Network is a platform which works since 2010 for the interconnection and the exchange of the local knowledge and for the mutual benefit of all implicated art professionals and their institutions. The general aim of Curators’ Network is to foster the international promotion and interconnection of art professionals who live and work in environments that can be considered peripheral to the main centers of contemporary art. It seeks making visible these professionals on an international scale as well as transferring local knowledge to an international community and vice versa. The activities of Curators’ Network are real-life events that are always combined with tools of digital promotion.
