ARTPORT_making waves is an international curators collective that raises awareness of current social and political issues worldwide through theme-oriented exhibitions, performance projects, workshops, residency programs, and artists collaborations.
ARTPORT_making waves aims at creating sustainable networks of artists, curators, galleries, art collectors, and critics to promote a true globalization of the artistic discourse, giving a voice to promising artists from all over the world. At the same time, ARTPORT_making waves encourages the cross-fertilization of art, science, and politics. The collaborative programs will bring forward new and exciting ways to inspire positive changes across borders.
The first project series of ARTPORT_making waves explores artists’ responses to Climate Change, its causes, effects, and solutions. How do artists reflect on the drastic ecological shifts that cause an increasing number of natural disasters like hurricanes, droughts, floods, and diseases? How can artists make a difference? How can they create awareness among the general public, and influence the political will to introduce changes in policies and education? What are the different approaches worldwide and how can we create synergies?
ARTPORT_making waves was founded in 2006 by two international curators, Corinne Erni and Anne-Marie Melster. ARTPORT_making waves is based in Valencia, Spain and New York City. ARTPORT is incorporated as a non-for-profit organization in Spain. It is also a fiscally sponsored project of the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA), a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. NYFA receives tax-deductible donations in the U.S. on behalf of ARTPORT.
