The Lacuna Festivals are an annual International Contemporary Art Festival delivered in the Canary Islands, Spain. Over the last three years our festival has grown in popularity and now runs for a whole month during the summer. In 2020 the festivals exhibited 653 artworks, from 210 artists, coming from 53 countries around the world and held 45 live events. There was no fee for artists to partake or exhibit and all of our exhibitions and events were completely free to view or participate in, encouraging the public to engage in Contemporary Art from around the world. We aim to continue to grow our reach around the world and continue to bring international artists together. The Lacuna Festivals aim to: Promote quality, contemporary (and sometimes challenging) art to communities isolated from mainland Europe which, therefore have limited access to Arts & Culture. Offer something local/translocal for both resident and visiting artists through stimulating local creatives and the local culture. To enlarge creative networks and provide a point of contact for the exchange of knowledge, the sharing of ideas and the blossoming of creativity.

Juxtapose Art Fair is a new gathering for the artist-run sector, featuring exhibitions, talks, tours, and a one-day conference. The fair will debut in Aarhus, Denmark in August 2021. As a non-commercial art fair, Juxtapose is not focused on sales. Instead our goal is to celebrate the diversity of the artist-run sector, and to support the artists behind this sector. The fair will showcase 24 artist-run initiatives. By “artist-run initiatives” we mean: projects that are led and organized by visual artists and/or independent curators. Such initiatives are separate from the organizer’s individual artistic practice. We are interested in all kinds of artist-run initiatives, including artist-run exhibition spaces, artist collectives, independent art publications, online platforms, and other projects that fall outside the walls of museums and commercial galleries. By bringing very different initiatives together in one space, we hope to highlight the unique profile of each project. The public will be able to learn more about each initiative and the larger artist-run sector through a series of talks, panel debates, and tours to local initiatives here in Aarhus. Behind the scenes, the initiatives participating in the fair will have many opportunities to meet and learn from other artists. We will consider […]
