Rogaland Kunstsenter jobber med Curatron prosjektet. Curatron er et online kuratorisk verktøy som gir kunstneren en direkte innflytelse i utstillingsprosessen. En Open Call har blitt utlyst for utstillinger og residencies i Norden og Baltikum, og den finner du her.

Curatron is an online software tool that involves artists directly in the curatorial processes of the exhibitions in which they participate. Curatron is an anonymous system of peer evaluation and selection, which enables a pool of artists to select co-exhibitors from amongst a group of applicants of which they are a part of. The prize sought out by the Curatron software is the algorithm for the perfect, or at least perfectly coherent, thematic group show. With the cooperation of human artists, this may just be achievable.
