Do you have an idea for an exhibition, a performance, intervention or event?

FaB is offering aspiring Curators the opportunity to devise and organise a show as part of FaB Festival, 24 May - 9 June 2019.

We invite fresh and challenging concepts

FaB is a test-bed for the new, wonderful and sometimes odd. We encourage you to think outside the box! See links below to some 2018 Curators' blogs, and visit www.fringeartsbath.co.uk for more.

FaB Curators' shows can include: performance, intervention, installation, multi-media and video work, photography, drawing, painting, sculpture and all disciplines in between. 

Curating a show for FaB is a great chance to gain experience in this competitive field, to realise your own exhibition or event, to make new contacts and network. In past years FaB has initiated exchanges between artists and curators from London, Brighton, Manchester, Swansea, Oxford, Bath, Hungary, Poland, Canada and beyond.

Selection by committee will take place in November, those selected will be invited to attend a Curator's meeting after which your show will be advertised in FaB's November call out to artists.

FaB will offer you admin support, practical advice through regular meetings, mentoring from past curators and exhibition space.
