Wood Works: Open Call for Curators
The Estonian Association of Architects (EAA) has joined forces with the Estonian Centre for Architecture (ECA) and Irish Architecture Foundation (IAF) to promote an international Open Call to select a curatorial team for Wood Works— a new exhibition programme taking place between Ireland and Estonia in 2020—2021.
Wood Works is an Estonian and Irish collaboration that focuses on the use of wood in design and construction in architecture. The aim of the competitive Open Call is to find curators for the Wood Works initiative, which includes a travelling exhibition, collaborative workshops and publication
The Wood Works 2020-2021 project supports an exchange of expertise and creativity between architects from Estonia and Ireland to establish collaborative possibilities between all participants. We are seeking applications for a curatorial team who together demonstrate that they are deeply acquainted with the architectural culture in both Estonia and Ireland in equal measure.
