CPR 2016: SOUTH AMERICA
CPR 2016: South America will take place over the course of 20 days across Bogotá, Medellín, Santiago de Chile and Buenos Aires. Hosted by local institutions including the Museo de Arte Moderno de Medellín
(MAMM), Fundación Artes Visuales Asociados
in Santiago de Chile, and arteBA Fundación
in Buenos Aires, each program gathers a cohort of ten curators, and stresses both academic rigor and on-site research. Each city features a specialized curriculum, which includes readings and lectures about local socio-political history, arts, and culture. These are complemented by daily visits to artist studios and local art institutions. Following the trip, each curator is asked to submit a proposal for a project in his/her home city; one winning proposal will be awarded funds for its production.
ABOUT THE CURATORIAL PROGRAM FOR RESEARCH
CPR is the core facilitator of an international network of curators, artists and institutions. Through open calls and full research scholarships, CPR has three goals: first, to enable a direct, in situ communication between international curators and local artists. Secondly, to promote equal access to knowledge. And third, to act as a platform for promotion and practice for the participating curators and hosts. With a nomadic and intensive format, CPR promotes dialogue between international curators and local artistic scenes.
