During my initial investigation into current curator open calls for 2014, I also noticed an open call for artists and curators on callforcurators.com dated 10 January 2014 for new exhibitions during 2014. The call was on behalf of art:i:curate, a website that “organizes exhibitions based on what its network likes” (Call for Curators, 2014, online). As well as creating an opportunity for artists and curators to curate collections online, there is also the opportunity for popular online exhibitions to be exhibited offline.
I decided to sign up to the art:i:curate website and emailed the organization for further information as follows:
