Warehouse421 and the Bombay Institute for Critical Analysis and Research (BICAR) invite curators from within the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia regions, to propose a group exhibition and publication on ‘Future Perfect: Catastrophe and the Contemporary’. Future perfect is a perspective of the future on what the past (our present) will have been if we do not think, act, and create in the here and now of contemporary catastrophe. 

The curatorial development program will entail rigorous study, artist and artwork selection, and writing on the future perfect, a tense introduced with modern science’s revolutionary break from ‘animism’ and the contemporary aesthetic turn to perspective. The successful curator/curatorial collective will receive a curatorial fee of AED20,000, in addition to a fully produced exhibition. 

Colloquium Guest Speakers and Participants include Ala Younis, Bijoy Jain, Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Raqs Media Collective, Rohini Devasher, and Walid Sadek.  Those who apply and are not accepted to exhibit and publish can choose to be considered for participation in the colloquium. Anyone from the humanities, social sciences, or arts can apply to participate in the colloquium only.

** Applications will be open from May 16 until July 3, 2021
