In 2018, Marres Maastricht and Z33 Hasselt jointly present the exhibition Currents #6.

For the sixth edition of Currents, Marres and Z33 are looking for a team of curators (minimum two persons). Currents is an annual group exhibition, showcasing works by recently graduated artists from art academies in Belgium, Germany, and the southern Netherlands. The exhibition will be embedded in a broader guidance trajectory in which training, networking and professionalisation are central.

With Currents, the House for Contemporary Culture of Maastricht, Marres, acts as a platform for up-and-coming artists and curators to contribute to an international infrastructure for talent development. Z33 – house for contemporary art in Hasselt also pursues this same objective in its operations. With the recently launched Studio Talent research cluster, Z33 aims to be a driving force for talent development.

After five editions, Currents is a secure platform for young artists and curators. Over the past years, 95 artists from 12 academies have exhibited their work, have given presentations, and participated in workshops. By participating in the project, 12 young international curators have given their careers a considerable boost.



We are looking for curators who:

  • enjoy working closely with young artists;
  • have a good feel for production work;
  • have a keen eye on logistics and planning;
  • have good writing skills;
  • have the time in June and July 2018 to visit all the graduation shows in the Euroregion.

A fee and compensation for travel expenses are provided
