A support program for aspiring planners and curators launched in 2006, calling for applications from young exhibition organizers with project proposals. In the past, the applications have not only come from curators but also from artists with their own self-produced project plans. Many of those artists' self-produced exhibition outlines have presented innovative ideas beyond existing genres in art.
Three projects from 44 exciting applications from young curators and self-producing artists were selected for the Emerging Artist Support Program 2010.
