> WHAT IS THE FIFTH CURATOR COMPETITION?
>
> The Fifth Curator competition is a new and unique opportunity for an 
> aspiring curator from outside the UK to select an exhibition from the 
> British Council Collection, which includes over 8500 key works of 
> British art from the 20th and 21st century.
>
> Applicants are invited to research the collection via our website and 
> then to submit an exhibition proposal exclusively featuring collection 
> works. We particularly encourage new views and fresh perspectives on 
> the Collection as these are vital to ongoing debates about British art 
> within an international context.
>
> The winning proposal will be realised as the final installment in a 
> series of five British Council collection exhibitions at the 
> Whitechapel Gallery, one of the UK's leading contemporary Arts spaces, 
> situated in vibrant East London.
>
> The first exhibition in this series 'Passports - Great Early Buys from 
> the British Council Collection' was selected by Artist Michael 
> Craig-Martin and focussed on some of the most prescient acquisitions 
> in the Collection's long history.
>
> 'My selection of works for this exhibition barely scratches the 
> surface of the Collection. For every work I felt able to include there 
> were half a dozen I had to leave outů This is a collection that 
> contains hidden treasures, many of which I know will be included in 
> subsequent exhibitions of this series.' (Michael Craig-Martin)
>
> Other exhibitions in the series will be selected by Tim Marlow (White 
> Cube), Paula Rego (Artist) and Jeremy Deller and Alan Kane (Artists).
>
> The winning curator will be given unlimited access to the Collection, 
> will work side by side with the British Council's Visual Arts 
> Department in London and will be supported in realising a major 
> curatorial opportunity at the newly refurbished Whitechapel Gallery in 
> April 2010.
>
>
> WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
>
> - We are looking for someone who is based permanently outside the UK 
> and who believes they have the passion and knowledge to be a leading 
> curator. Preference will be given to individuals who would benefit 
> most from the professional development and mentoring aspects of this 
> award.
>
> - It is anticipated that the winning curator will have some proven 
> experience in the contemporary arts field, but does not regularly have 
> the opportunity to curate exhibitions of their choice within their 
> professional capacity.
>
> - Candidates must be competent in both written and spoken English 
> (I.E.L.T.S Level 6 English Language or equivalent). All applications 
> must be submitted in English.
>
>
> THE SELECTION PROCESS
>
> - In November 2009, six short-listed applicants will be invited to 
> London to take part in a week of professional development with the 
> Visual Arts Department of the British Council.
>
> - During this week, applicants will be encouraged to refine their 
> proposals with the advice, guidance and resources of Visual Arts 
> staff. They will be given the opportunity to visit the Whitechapel 
> gallery, to view the proposed exhibition space and to meet with the 
> Whitechapel curatorial team.
>
> - At the end of the week, the winning proposal will be selected by a 
> panel of senior art world figures at a special presentation dinner.
