CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN TO LAUNCH ON OCTOBER 10!

Excited to announce our crowdfunding campaign to support ARTSail upcoming spring 2019 residency with artist Caecilia Tripp. On October 10 we are launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for Tripp's ambitious research and sound project, The Coral Sonata. During her residency, she'll use state-of-the-art technology to record the underwater sounds of South Florida's diverse coral populations, documenting an audio portrait of the effects of climate change.

One Drop at a Time project by Mark Lee Koven is postponed

We are sorry to announce that Mark Lee Koven’s interactive installation, the outcome of his ARTsail residency, will be postponed to a later date.

One Drop at a Time is an immersive interactive and participatory installation that integrates data collection, education and technology with art. Participants have the opportunity to better understand their local climate as well as share personal stories, beliefs, and perceptions about climate change. Participants are immersed in a 360-degree surround sound and video loop that includes video footage shot during Mark Koven’s ARTSail residency in South Florida, as well as 3D printed objects and interactive activities taking place inside of a mobile planetarium dome.

Stay tuned for further announcements!

We are thrilled to announce the arrival of our second resident, curator Blanca de la Torre. Blanca is a Spanish curator, currently based between Spain and Mexico City. From 2009 to 2013, she was the Chief Curator at ARTIUM, Basque Museum-Center of Contemporary Art(Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain).  Since 2014, she curated exhibitions at museums and institutions in Europe, Latin America and the US as an independent curator.  Her interest in environmental art, eco-aesthetic and eco-feminism brought her to explore these subjects through her curatorial activity and her writings. She recently inaugurated the exhibition HYBRIS at the MUSAC (Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Castilla y Leon).
