The International Biennale of Performance, Collaborative and Participatory Arts means to shift: to be movable, exchange, modify, transfer… the crux includes the shifting of minds, theories and practices. Grappling with the unconventional and new ways of working. Not being afraid of experimentation and pushing past any stagnant boundaries. Performance art is new within the canonical context of art history. Therefore, [SHIFT: ibpcpa] provide a platform for artists to interpret and present work, for an international biennale based on ‘junction-making’ and ‘networked’ performances which enable an exclusive focus on performance practices including collaborative and/or participatory elements between artists and other non-art disciplines.

Coventry Biennial celebrates and promotes contemporary art, producing high quality exhibitions, activities and events in one of the UK’s most creative and industrious cities. This biennial festival is deeply connected to Coventry, its histories and wider context, but also retains an outward looking perspective, ensuring that the programme has wider appeal, significance and impact. Now working towards our second festival in 2019, we are also looking forward to contributing to Coventry taking the title of UK City of Culture in 2021 and we intend to play a significant part in attracting local, national and international audiences to experience the distinctive voices, rich culture and diversity inherent to Coventry. Our programme occupies unexpected sites in the city such as historic buildings, community centres, empty retail units, theatres and public spaces as well as more traditional gallery and museum spaces.

I started painting early, I do not remember age, but discovering as a child distant drawings and scribbles on the walls of my parents’ workshop. Then, I was drawing for hours on my parents’ sewing machines while they worked. I did it for pleasure and because my weak health did not allow me to run around with other children. Then they sent me to a teacher and I met the oil painting, the models, and the museums and galleries, as well as the concerts, since it was part of my teacher’s demands. As a teenager I embarked on painting as an adventure, which led me to discover other active artists, to live together in the San Telmo Fair. The Constructivism was a solid foundation for walking the path of Painting, giving a solid approach towards mural painting & Applied Art. With the decades this form of work received new names as Urban Art, and many times in fusion with graffiti artists. I believe that the artist’s task is to give a testimony of his time and to tell something individual and important of one: to make a place on earth and relate something unique and relevant. When I have the […]

Sluice has staged art fairs and biennials in London and expos in New York and Berlin.

Sluice magazine grew out of these initiatives and is now independently published by Sluice Art twice a year.
The Curatorial Collective for Public Art (CCPA) develops curatorial formats for the production, mediation and representation of art in public space, public art and urban interventions. As an agency for site-specific, transdisciplinary, critical and transitory public art, it approaches curatorial practice as a collective endeavor on the intersection of concept, organization and design. Through long-term collaborations and in reciprocal processes with artists, CCPA experiments with innovative curatorial frameworks for artworks in public space – be it a festival for urban interventions, an artistic funfair or an exhibition of ephemeral public art. CCPA was established in 2020 and consists of Yael Sherill, Lianne Mol, Julia Kawka and José Délano. The collective combines the members’ collective interests and expertise in curatorial practice, exhibition and stage design, cultural mediation, research, dramaturgy and project management in the field of site-specific theater, transdisciplinary art in public space and socially engaged practices. CCPA is an independent, nomadic collective without a fixed space, working across a variety of localities and collaborating with institutional partners and project spaces. Although based in Berlin, the collective works translocally, combining the international networks of its members. The team first worked together in 2019 in the frame of the project “Tracks in […]

SUPERORDINARY IS AN EPHEMERAL ART SPACE LOCATED IN THE BRISBANE CBD. WE PROVIDE SPACE FOR ARTISTS TO CREATE WORK, SHOW WORK AND COLLABORATE BY RECLAIMING UNUSED URBAN SPACES. Superordinary facilitates partnerships with property owners to utilise otherwise unused urban spaces in central Brisbane and repurposes them for arts projects and artistic development. Superordinary aims to provide opportunities often unavailable to artists due to economic barriers of entry. As a melting pot of energy for multi-disciplinary collaboration, our artists in residency are provided with space, opportunity and encouragement to create and innovate within a like minded community. In addition to our artistic facilitation, Superordinary provides space to emerging creative professionals to garner the support required to produce activations of their own. Our ground floor venue space will be home to many of these, as well as several immersive events and exhibitions from our artists in residence. While our current location at 62 Mary Street is temporary, the ephemeral nature of Superordinary and the community it cultivates will continue on in future spaces responding to their unique attributes. It’s what continues on between these physical spaces that defines Superordinary.

The Union is a newly created Oslo-based organization (2020), an artist-run mediation platform consisting of Slovakian Martinka Bobrikova, Peruvian-Palestinian Rodrigo Ghattas-Pérez, and Spanish Oscar de Carmen. One of the core missions of The Union is to explore new socio-political realities through digital and physical activism and creative-citizen movements: the impact of Covid-19 – for artists, activists, thinkers, and creative minds – and its aftermath, being one of the most urgent ones. The Union´s laid-back projects target power structures in institutions, triggering loosen-up critical reflections through the use of unconventional, domestic, and experiential practices. We work to create other valorization structures for art, life, and culture, and to reshape the publics’ interaction; to actively participate in the collective design of new forms of care, participation, and empowerment through the arts. Whilst we cultivate countercultures and creative-civil community engagement.
