Located in the Dupont Arts Building, NAMARA Projects is a new venue for research, deliberation, and presentation of curatorial work.

NAMARA works around the fluctuating borders of the traditional art world. The explorations conducted in the Project Space inform both independent and commissioned presentations. Through our work, we celebrate thoughtful work by contemporary artists; challenge traditions, experimenting with untested methods; and welcome new collaborators and audiences.

We invite curators to respond to this open call for curatorial proposals. There is no criteria nor deadline but we ask that your proposal is tailored to the space. Digital or online components are also welcome. A maximum of four proposals per year will be accepted.
