Curare Art Space
Meaning "to care for," CURARE gives artists a space to explore the deeply personal in a dynamic online platform. CURARE's exhibitions are activated through research and collaboration. As an art space that focuses on the stories of artists, writers, performers, and creators through their art, we engage with art as life, and make space for human stories.
Upon approval of a project concept, the Artist will be given an online platform to present a project-in-development or completed art project. CURARE will then work with the artist to develop his or her output in an online exhibition by collaborating regarding curation and exhibitionary formats, which may include communication, exhibition design, and conceptualization to help the Artist explore this online space. In completion and making the exhibition live, both CURARE and the Artist will hold supplementary activities during the duration of the online exhibit, such as artist talks (online podcast or actual meet-and-greet), conversations, or other public engagement programs.

About the Cover
On it's one-year anniversary since its conception as an idea, Curare has aimed to critique the white cube format of exhibition-making without totally eradicating its foundation, by accommodating unconventional media, celebrating artists' processes, and opening curation to collaboration. The white blob, symbolic of the online art space, is seemingly alive in the digital ether---yet within the confines of the screen. What has resulted is a space not entirely a white cube nor a black hole, but a mutated center, sentient in both limitation and potential. John Alexis Balaguer, 12/31/19
