As part of ICI’s collaboration with the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros to create research opportunities in Central America and the Caribbean, ICI is pleased to announce the launch of a resource platform that offers information on institutions, archives, museums, collections, and other relevant activities constituting Central America and the Caribbean’s contemporary art scene, including independent initiatives, biennials, and private foundations. This platform was conceived of and developed by Sofia Olascoaga, ICI’s first Curatorial Research Fellow (2010).
Reflecting the evolving landscape of the art scene, this platform will be updated as new information becomes available.
Thanks to the artists and curators who have helped to shape and enrich the project to date: David Ayala Alfonso, Magali Arriola, Stefan Benchoam, Tamara Díaz Bringas, Rosina Cazali, Santiago Olmo, María Inés Rodríguez, and Paola Santoscoy.
