The curatorial residency supported by the Schwarz Foundation at their venue Art Space Pythagorion on the island of Samos is an opportunity for emerging curatorial professionals to gain experience in the day-to-day running of an existing exhibition.

Residents are offered full accommodation in the Art Space, where the Foundation's exhibitions take place, creating a vibrant living and working community. Residents will actively interact with the curatorial team and the artists during the installation of the exhibition. They will be provided an extensive briefing on the exhibition concept, curatorial practices adopted and the artists' intentions. At the start of the program, residents assist with the organisation of the opening and public program activities. Responsibilities include: distributing promotional materials, approaching local community members to publicize the show, assisting artists as they prepare for installing or realising their works, giving guided tours of the exhibition to visitors and aiding with mediation. Once the exhibition is running, residents are in charge of the mediation of the exhibition, taking care of the operation of the space and being the public face of the exhibition.
