The Center for Contemporary Arts Celje is the central institution in the Savinjska region involved in the reaserch, presentation, development and promotion of local, national and international contemporary visual art. It includes three exhibition spaces (Gallery of Contemporary Art, Likovni salon Gallery and Racka Gallery) and carries out an educational program, outreaching with its activities in the regional framework, while at the same time functioning as a meeting place of local and international artistic events. We maintain active contacts with the rest of the world through our residency program AIR CELEIA, which has been active since 2005 and is dedicated to both artists and curators.

The AIR CELEIA program is conceived on the basis of a reciprocal model that enables the residential artist / curator to become acquainted with, get in contact with, exchange experiences with and get involved in the local artistic community, offering at the same time local artists the possibility of establishing new connections and forms of collaboration.

The Center for Contemporary Arts is publishing an open call for collaboration in the AIR Celeia 2013 program, which will enable the selected curator to carry out an in-depth research of the visual art produced in Slovenia and to prepare a curatorial project that will be realized in the Center for Contemporary Arts in 2014/2015.

During two-month residential stay, the selected curator will be expected to prepare a concept for the curatorial project which must include Slovenian artists (dual presentation of Slovenian and foreign artists). The Center for Contemporary Arts will arrange for the curator to connect with the city, to become well acquainted with the local artistic community and will offer all the necessary support in the realization of the curatorial project.

The selected curator will be offered a two-month stay in our residential flat (which is located in the city center in the immediate vicinity of the Center for Contemporary Arts and the local artistic district; the residential flat includes a kitchen, a studio, a bedroom, a bathroom and Internet), a grant of € 600 per month and a royalty payment of € 1000 after the realization of the curatorial project. The travel costs are not covered.

The selected curator will be informed of the decision by the end of July. In 2013, the curatorial stay offered by AIR CELEIA will take place between November and December.
