Curatoría Forense – Latinoamérica.

Curatoría Forense is a multidisciplinary group dedicated to contemporary art practices in Latin America. Its activities begun in 2005 in Santiago de Chile. At start the organization emerged so as to cover a flaw regarding exhibitive possibilities for young Chilean contemporary artists, who were not able to participate in the established art institutions. At that time, the main mission was to research on the curatorial field establishing a horizontal relationship between the producer and the curator in order to create new capabilities for aesthetic experimentation.

Since 2009 Curatoría Forense turned into a nomadic organization that focuses and carries out research on the processes of emergence and consolidation of peripheral local contemporary art scenes in the Latin America.

This shift implied the innovation in the methodology as well as in the production of texts and activities in order to understand how contemporary art occurs in communities that have a lack of resources and weak cultural policies. To this effect, Curatoría Forense became a vector between different scenes, developing collaborative projects.

We encourage the generation of thought, knowledge and interaction focusing on the triangulation of contemporary art and debate with different communities.

Our goal is to test -on facts and on ideas- the diagrams and hypothesis that we generate.

Our mission is to build a network in order to create and consolidate affective and effective relationships with art and cultural practitioners along the continent.
