Young Curators Residency Programme
Since 2020, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo promotes the Young Curators Residency Programme Madrid. The project aims to support emerging curatorial practice while spreading knowledge of the Spanish art scene on an international level. The YCRP Madrid stems from the experience of the Young Curators Residency Programme Torino, that takes place every year in Italy since 2007.
Participants to the Young Curators Residency Programme are selected by an international jury following an interview with each candidate, based on a motivational letter, curriculum vitae, portfolio of previously realised projects, published or recently edited texts. The biographies listed in this page are updated to the year in which the jurors took part in the selection process.
