ACASA is pleased to announce a new initiative, The Awards for Curatorial Excellence. The awards recognize the important contributions to the dissemination and understanding of African and African Diaspora Arts made through exhibitions. Temporary exhibitions and permanent collection installations organized by museums, galleries, cultural centers, and exhibition spaces of all sorts are eligible. Three ACASA Awards for Curatorial Excellence will be given per triennial cycle, beginning with the Triennial Symposium in Ghana in August 2017. To be considered, exhibitions must have been on view between September 1, 2013 and August 30, 2016. Exhibitions opening after August 30, 2016 will be eligible for the awards at the 2020 Triennial.
New deadline and eligibility requirements: The current deadline for nominations is February 6, 2017. Applicants for the curatorial awards need not be an ACASA member in order to apply.
