Following the success of the recent Artist of the Week programme, Salon Contemporary is thrilled to introduce a novel competition for all the budding, creative and visionary curators out there!Curator of the Month’ is offering young talents the chance to curate an exhibition of the nation’s aspiring contemporary artists in the artistic hub of Notting Hill, with the chance of international exposure and opportunities!

This competition provides a huge opportunity for any recent graduate with a talent for curating, and any business student with an interest in applying his or her skills to the art market, or any art history graduate/final year student willing to push boundaries and take risks within the contemporary art world.

On the last day of every month, Salon Contemporary will announce the winning ‘Curator of the Month’, who will then be invited to curate one of the galleries exciting forthcoming exhibitions in 2011.

Remember that this competition is monthly – there is no deadline, so if you’re not successful one month, there’s no reason not to keep applying!
