For its fifth international edition to be held in Lisbon, Portugal from October to December 2019, the Lisbon Architecture Triennale seeks a Chief Curator or Curatorial Team.
For complete information and deadlines concerning submission requirements, please visit the Triennale’s website here.
Applications from individuals or collectives of any nationality and country of residence are openly invited. Nevertheless, applications must include a resident in mainland Portugal that can interact and respond to the Lisbon Triennale.
Although the Triennale’s working and official languages will be Portuguese and English, proposals in Spanish or French are also welcome.
A jury composed of the Board of Directors of the Lisbon Architecture Triennale Association and the Chief Curator of the fourth edition will make the selection.
The selection criteria will take into account aspects such as relevance of theme, originality of the proposal, suitability for the Triennial’s goals and the structure and nature of the curatorial team and candidate’s experience. In case of doubt in the evaluation of the proposals, one or more candidates may be asked to provide additional clarifications.
The Form of Form, the fourth edition of Lisbon Architecture Triennale, is ongoing until 11 December 2016.
The Lisbon Architecture Triennale is a non-profit association whose mission is to examine, foster and promote architectural thinking and practice. It holds a major forum every three years for the debate, discussion and dissemination of architecture across geographic and disciplinary boundaries.
The first Triennale, Urban Voids, took place in 2007 presenting a programme of international exhibitions, competitions and conferences. In 2010, the second edition, Let’s Talk About Houses, consolidated the Triennale’s presence on the circuit of events devoted to architecture. With its third edition, Close, Closer, in 2013, the event consolidated its international projection and recognition.
In addition to its main event, the Triennale also organizes the Critical Distance conferences, which have brought to Lisbon major names in the world of architecture in the previous two cycles. Furthermore, it also organizes Open House Lisboa and Open House Porto (together with Casa da Arquitectura), two events that open the doors to the best architecture in these cities for one weekend per year. At its headquarters at Palácio Sinel de Cordes the Lisbon Architecture Triennale organises and hosts a range of other events, which constitute the palace’s cultural programming.
Each edition of the Lisbon Architecture Triennale is distinguished with the High Patronage of His Excellency the President of the Portuguese Republic. The Triennale has also enjoyed the Public Utility status since 2013, and was recognized by the Ministry of Culture in 2010, as an event of Cultural Interest.
