In 2020 I developed the proposal for a curatorial program for Cas di Cultura, the island's cultural center. The proposal for the program followed two urgencies on the island regarding the production and reception of (local) visual arts. Firstly, it addresses the lack of platforms for local artists to experiment, present their work, and engage with audiences. Secondly, it encourages a dialogue with the local audience where the depth, agency, and multifaceted nature of visual arts are presented.
The program, the first of its kind in Aruba, consisted of 5 exhibitions featuring emerging and mid-career local visual artists. The exhibitions were dialogues with the local community, questioning their understanding of the 'Aruban culture,' and the role of art within the community. The exhibition series aims to create a space for new art audiences and encourages the exploration of the aesthetic experience and arts' ability to facilitate dialogue.
