«The waiting room»

I'm throwing myself in the waters of curation and therefore organizing an exhibition in December in my flat. The money collected will remunerate the artists and cultural actors that will partake.

This is what it's all about.

I’m embarking on an exciting journey into the world of art curation, and I invite you to join me. In the world of creative projects, getting the green light and funding can be quite challenging. You often get more rejections than approvals, and it can be frustrating. I’m interested for this exhibition in proposals that were well-thought-out but never got the chance to become a reality. What I want to do is not directly bring these projects to life, but rather shine a spotlight on the proposals themselves.

My project is special because ...

The stage for this exciting exhibition is my apartment in Zürich, which will undergo renovations in January. With the apartment empty, we can make the most of this unique space. The exhibition, as of now, will take place from the 31st of December until the 3rd of January.

This is what I need backing for.

Unfortunately, the funding possibilities that I encountered (also due to timing) did not support smaller project like this one and are reserved to bigger events, mostly already supported by other foundations… I can’t provide fees for the exhibiting artists and cultural actors partaking. The money will also cover the necessary material to build the exhibition, eventual shipping costs, the documentation, the drinks for the opening etc… Your support will help bring this celebration of ideas to life !
