Curator's Incubator 2009 at MAP


Each year, MAP’s Curators’ Incubator Program renews the opportunity for Maryland Art
Place to become a working laboratory for aesthetic experiments. Curators’ Incubator
provides a creative space for the region’s aspiring curators to develop and present their
concepts. MAP guides the curatorial process, beginning with an open call that
encourages proposals and ending in the presentation of selected projects. MAP’s
Program Advisory Committee took on the review and selection of our 2009 curators and
MAP staff facilitated the production of the exhibition and companion catalogue.
