From the Info Page:
Founded in 2003, Manifesta Journal is an international journal focusing on the practices and theories of contemporary curatorship. Manifesta Journal explores and analyzes current developments in curatorial work, in correspondence with the evolution of the Manifesta Biennial over the course of the past decade. The main aim of the journal is to give a stronger voice to an up-and-coming group of (non-) institutional curators, intellectuals, theorists and critics, and to function as a platform for the articulation and discussion of their positions within a pan-European and transcontinental context.Matt Kappler
Justified by what is now the “stable” status of the curator, by the diversity within the broader community of professional curators and by the network of curatorial schools, programs and courses in Europe and beyond, Manifesta Journal intends to fulfill an otherwise vacant duty – the establishment of curatorial self-reflection and investigation.
The Copywriter behind the Historically Hardcore Adventure. Yes. We DO think that writing is an artform. If you don't consider writing a creative endeavor then go and write out a description of your most recent fart in 25 words or less and get 10 people to give a damn. Good luck.
This is a museum I want to visit someday...it is in Balzano, Italy. The Collections sound intriguing...

INTRODUCING PARKETT: A SMALL MUSEUM AND A LARGE LIBRARY OF CONTEMPORARY ART
Parkett is published in direct collaboration with important international artists, whose oeuvre is explored in several essays by leading writers and critics. Each artist also creates a special signed and numbered work exclusive to Parkett.
Up to now Parkett has published more than 80 volumes with some 180 monographs and over 1500 in-depth texts making it one of the most comprehensive libraries on contemporary art worldwide. At the same time the collection of all editions, prints, photographs, objects, and other works made by the artists especially for Parkett forms a unique document and small museum of the art of the past quarter of a century.
The Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris has called Parkett one of the best art publications and invited the publication to a special exhibition in Paris. Subsequently, exhibitions of Parkett's artists' editions have been held in Cologne (Ludwig Museum), Frankfurt (Portikus), Copenhagen (Louisiana Museum), Tokyo (Hillside Forum), Geneva (Centre d'Art Contemporain), London (Whitechapel Art Gallery), Zurich (Kunsthaus) among other places. For more details about Parkett’s Museum exhibitions please go to the exhibitions page (click menu on top right of the page).
"Where artists find their open calls." A portfolio site that can line you up with opportunities, or so it claims. They have over 13,000 professionals from over 140 countries looking for those same opportunities, so the competition might be a bit tough. Good luck!
