Member-run artist collective Vox Populi will launch a curatorial fellowship program dedicated to performance art. Vox Populi will host five curatorial fellows in total over a period of two years; each will complete two months of research and then oversee two months of programming at AUX, Vox Populi's performance art space. Artist-members and staff will work closely with fellows to ensure that their programs are linked thematically to existing AUX programs, and to experiment with new approaches to audience participation. In working with these outside fellows, Vox will expand its national network, while educating its members and local audiences about experimental performance practices outside of the immediate artistic community. Fellows will be chosen initially through a nomination process and later, after the program gains traction, through an open call. 1
