Critical Distance Centre for Curators

Part gallery and pub­lisher, part pro­fes­sional asso­ci­a­tion and net­work, CDCC exists to: pro­vide oppor­tu­ni­ties and resources to cura­tors and artists for the pro­duc­tion of exhi­bi­tions and projects within a crit­i­cal frame­work; fos­ter cura­to­r­ial com­mu­nity and dis­course at all lev­els of pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment; pro­mote edu­ca­tion, sus­tain­abil­ity, and best prac­tices in curat­ing and exhibition-making; and more.

With a focus on crit­i­cally engaged, col­lab­o­ra­tive, and cross-disciplinary prac­tices, under­rep­re­sented artists and art forms, and com­mu­nity out­reach and edu­ca­tion in art and exhibition-making, Crit­i­cal Dis­tance is an open plat­form for diverse cura­to­r­ial per­spec­tives, and a forum for the exchange of ideas on curat­ing and exhibition-making as ways to engage and inform audi­ences from all walks of life.
