We’re back with another newsletter for your quick catch-up and immerse with exhibitions by Caribbean artists
The online exhibition titled ‘Estamos buscando temblor – We are looking to shake – Nos ta buskando temblor’ officially launched on the 25th of October. With the curatorial guidance of Yina Jiménez Suriel, 11 Caribbean-based artists have attended an online residency and explored new reading materials that cover topics such as the use of language to express, limit or redefine a reality.
Next to the collective group sessions, the artists were grouped in smaller groups based on similar themes of art practice to discourse regarding their practice. From this journey, these 11 artists have created new work that we are proud to share with the world.
The importance of a facilitator
During the Stimula program, we have explored the highly diverse undertaking of the art and cultural facilitator. With skills, mixed together with interest a facilitator can look like: a copywriter, a video editor, a funds recruiter, an event planner, a marketeer, and a producer all in one individual.
An interesting spin-off of the Stimula program is that one of the participants, Linda de Veer interviewed 3 artists, Ruben Cadenda, Ginelly Quandt & Melissa Bonilla that have participated in the Online Residency together with 8 other Caribbean-based artists.
With her affinity for language and writing, she extracted intriguing information and compiled it into a great read.
