Curatron – Selection Process
We will be using the Curatron software system as our method to define the artists within the group of the residency. Curatron is an online software tool developed to involve artists directly in the curatorial selection process. Each artist applying for the residency can view the entire pool of applicants and select other applicants they would like to spend their residency with. Curatron then calculates the final group from every applicants selection.
