Spring Season Opening: Curriculum Vitae
10 April 2019
sub is opened its spring program on April 10, 2019 with a group exhibition that will take place within the scope of the open call ‘Curriculum Vitae’: The open call aims to deliver the applications from different disciplines directly to the audience without a ‘selective team’. ‘Curriculum Vitae’ will meet the audience with the exhibition and parallel events that will continue until April 20, and a program held throughout the month.
'Curriculum Vitae', abbreviated as CV, means 'the course of life' in Latin. Nowadays, CV became a brief written description of the education, qualifications, previous work and sometimes personal interests compiled when applying for a place.
With ‘Curriculum Vitae’, sub proposes participants to share their alternative CVs that bring this commonly used format up for discussion, aiming to render all works answering this question visible.
The works presented in the exhibition offer alternative resumes through different mediums. Works on paper that deconstruct the resume format, as well as videos, installations and paintings referring to the social ‘curriculum vitae’ and discussing the subject can be seen at sub until April 20.
