The CEIA – Center of Experimentation and Information in Art stands under the general coordination by the art historian Marcos Hill and fine artist Marco Paulo Rolla, and the editorial coordination of the fine artist and graphic designer Viviane Gandra.
Interchanges of various natures, as well as the constitution of a long distance network, these are CEIA targets which made possible a series of ideas-and-creative-processes-nurturing-activities related to the Brazilian artistic production.
The CEIA lead to Kunstvlaai 2012 a lecture about the last event organized by the iniciative based on the concept of permeability and five brazilian artists: Estandelau, Joacélio Batista, Marcel Diogo, Marco Paulo Rolla and Noemi Assumpção.
INexactly This: the 2012 edition of Kunstvlaai, brings together some of the most significant and unique models of artist-‐run spaces, self-‐organized platforms as well as art schools from across The Netherlands and abroad. For over a decade, the festival has supported and propelled independent thinking as well as collaborative processes in the Dutch cultural scene. It continues to be a hosting platform for diverse structural positions and organizational attitudes that celebrate speculation, buoyancy, generous openness and mutual inspiration. Now framed as ‘Festival of Independents’, Kunstvlaai remains committed to showcasing a multitude of contemporary voices.
Curators: Natasha Ginwala (IND) and Fleur van Muiswinkel (NL).
