LIQUID IDENTITIES explores all the different facets of social, physical and cultural identities of our contemporary societies. Everyday we deal with a multitude of different identities and roles: we face the public life creating and adapting our social identities; our body and aesthetic tastes modify and are modified by our physical and sexual identities; our whole being evolves as well as contemporary cultures and modern cities do. Differences create new compounds and exchange possibilities.

The Ferry Gallery is a public contemporary art space on privately owned ferry operating on the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok. The gallery was founded on January 2014 by Thai artist and entrepreneur Kawita Vatanayankur, as a mean to promote the contemporary art scene in the capital city and to bring contemporary art to the masses. The sheer number of daily cross-river commuters puts The Ferry Gallery in a special spot where large number of audience is guaranteed and often repeated, thus creating opportunity for maximum exposure for the works exhibited.

“In Paul Tiililä´s art is the poetry crystallizing. He is able to touch the spectator with only a few marks; his language is simply and linearity and it is coming straight from his feelings. Paul Tiililä´s art is clean and optimistic art, art which touches.” (Eraldo Di Vita)

Open call for curators: The 2015 CPPC Travel Award for Central America and the Caribbean

Application deadline: April 1, 2015

The Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros (CPPC) and Independent Curators International (ICI) are pleased to announce an open call for curators: The 2015 Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Travel Award for Central America and the Caribbean. In its fourth edition, this travel award will support a contemporary art curator based anywhere in the world to travel to Central America and the Caribbean to conduct research about art and cultural activities in the region. Intended to generate new collaborations with artists, curators, museums, and cultural centers in the area, this award will cover curatorial residencies, studio visits, and/or archival research. 

The CPPC Travel Award will support a curator to visit either one or multiple locations in Central America and the Caribbean. The travel period can be anywhere between three weeks and three months, and take place between May and November 2015. The grant will cover costs of up to 10,000 USD. 

Application guidelines for the CPPC Travel Award can be found on ICI’s website. Independent curators and those with institutional affiliations may apply. Applications from established and emerging curators (3+ years of professional experience) will be considered. A jury of professionals who live in, or have extensive knowledge of the region, will select the successful applicant. 

The inaugural CPPC Travel Award was granted in 2012 to Pablo León de la Barra, who conducted research trips to the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Panama, and Puerto Rico with the aim to reread seminal historical moments in the region that have acquired new relevance in the current political and economic reality. The 2013 recipient, Remco de Blaaij, set out to research women activist practices in the countries of Guatemala, Jamaica, Nicaragua, and Suriname. The 2014 awardee, María Elena Ortiz, explored film and video practices in Aruba, Martinique, the Bahamas, and Trinidad and Tobago.
