HANDSHAKE  CURATION                                   

Curated Exhibitions

The HANDSHAKE (HS) curated exhibitions are additional to the existing HS programme. They evolve primarily from requests of galleries and curators in partnership with the organisers.

The HS programme has two divisions: the first one is the current mentor /exhibition programme and the second one focus on industry, where industry invites to participate with the aim that  HS artwork developed from past and current practices get another opportunity to be seen at different locations and circumstances.

Each curated HS exhibition is different with a different mix of artists, curatorial focus, exhibition set up, and other local circumstances. The HS organisers aim to collaborate with each of the curators, and/or gallery owners and negotiate the works for selection.  This additional programme allows continuation, and focus in the creative field for selected HS participants. The aim is to provide and stimulate opportunities for artistic excellence and growth.
