In 2012, Independent Curators International (ICI), l’insitut français in Paris, and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in New York, are collaborating on a Fellowship program offering a French curator a new opportunity for international research and the development of professional networks. Launching in July 2012 with a research trip to New York which coincides with the Summer Curatorial Intensive, the program spans over a period of six months and includes a second visit to the U.S., where the Fellow will use ICI as a base.
We are pleased to announce the selection of Muriel Enjalran as the first Fellow in this program. Enjalran is an independent curator and writer who is currently working on a monographic project with Hamish Fulton, which will open in 2013 at the CRAC Languedoc Roussillon in Sète, France, and is planned to travel internationally. In addition, Enjalran is developing a collaborative network that brings together artists from Portugal, Brazil and Morocco, where she also regularly curates projects for L’appartement 22, an independent art space in Rabat.
Since 2006, Enjalran has worked at the D.C.A – the French association for the development of art centers – where as Project Manager she has helped to coordinate a structure of 50 art spaces across France, and enable connections between them and other European institutions. She was an Associate Curator for the first edition of the Biennale de Belleville, Paris, in 2011; and for the 3rd Arts in Marrakech International Biennale, in 2009. She regularly contributes essays and reviews to publications such as Particules, Mag’Art, and Paris Art.
The progress of Enjalran’s research will be available on this page from September 2012, with updates through to the end of 2012. Please check our website regularly.
This Fellowship program is supported by the Ministère de la culture et de la communication (DGCA), with further assistance from the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in New York. Additional support is provided by THE OUT NYC.
