Curating the Young Exhibition

Thu 16.12.2021
Sun 19.12.2021
Location: OPEK

Curating the Young is hosting a bash of an exposition in a space occupied by promising young talent. The doubts, musings, perspectives, and certainties of artists and artistic disciplines about or on the Big Bang, the universe, and nature coalesce in this shared space. In short, the artists are bursting to blow your mind.


Curating the Young

Curating the Young is a dynamic, young curator collective that has been causing a bang in the art world since it first blasted onto the scene. We have a genuine claim to uniqueness because CTY pulls out all the stops to claim space for young people in the arts sector. We give young artists a platform and, more importantly, given them a shot at curating themselves. Expect edgy new art in a singular location by an artist on the cusp of making it as the next big thing. Or better yet ... Ditch those expectations and be blown away!
