The Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Travel Award for Central America and the Caribbean

Since 2012, the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros (CPPC) and ICI have been collaborating on an opportunity for curators: The CPPC Travel Award for Central America and the Caribbean.

The CPPC Travel Award for Central America and the Caribbean annually supports a contemporary art curator based anywhere in the world who wishes to travel to conduct research about art and cultural activities in Central America and the Caribbean. Intending to generate new collaborations with artists, curators, museums, cultural centers, and/or collections in the region, the travel award will support curatorial residencies, studio visits, and archival research.

The first award was given in honor of curator Virginia Pérez-Ratton (1950-2010), who was internationally renowned for her work with contemporary artists in Central America and the Caribbean, as well as her dedication to ensuring their practices be recognized beyond the region.

The travel period is between 3 weeks and 3 months. The grant covers costs of up to $10,000. Independent curators and those with institutional affiliations are eligible for the award. Applications from established and emerging curators (3+ years professional experience) will be considered. The award will support travel to either one or multiple locations in Central America and the Caribbean. Travel can be requested to the following countries: Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, The Antilles, The Bahamas, Colombia (Caribbean region), and Turks and Caicos Islands.
