FUTUROMA – ERIAC Proposal for a Roma Exhibition at the 58th Venice Contemporary Art Biennale

ERIAC CULTURAL INSTITUTIONS NETWORK INITIATIVE PROGRAM
30th of October, 2018
Venice, Italy

 

 

FUTUROMA, the exhibition commissioned by ERIAC and curated by Daniel Baker is currently under evaluation by the Artistic Director of the Venice Biennale. It is a proposal under consideration.
While awaiting the proposal’s evaluation the objective of ERIAC´s Venice event that took place on 30 October 2018 was to present the selected curator and his curatorial concept for the third Roma Exhibition at the Venice Biennale.

 

In case the proposal is selected by the Venice Biennale, our international jury consisting of academic Prof. Dr. Ethel Brooks, filmmaker Tony Gatlif and artist Miguel Ángel Vargas and ERIAC management decided to select Daniel Baker.

The event was attended by Ms. Timea Junghaus, Executive Director of ERIAC, Ms. Luisella Pavan-Woolfe, and Ms. Dijana Pavlovic, President of the Alliance for the European Roma Institute. It gathered distinguished Roma and non-Roma artists, scholars and political representatives who discussed the importance of the inclusion of Roma arts and culture into mainstream scenes.

 

 

The event is part of European Roma Institute for Arts and Culture (ERIAC) Cultural Institutions Network Initiative. There are seven events planned to be held in seven countries between September 2018 and February 2019. These events will embody ERIAC’s mission by providing visibility to Roma arts and culture, showcasing highest-quality productions of Roma contemporary art and engaging in discussions on the most relevant themes related to Romani history and heritage. They aim to educate majorities and provide a positive image of beauty and richness of Roma arts and culture.
The CINI series is supported by the German Federal Foreign Office.
