Type - Collaborations
This project is designed to create a curatorial round table and collectively journal to get to know each other and ourselves. Every week one participant will ask their questions to delve into each other’s thoughts and create a form of conversation that we all listen to instead of forcing someone to accept/understand our perception.
On the 30th of May, Cooltsalon and co-curator iksvy art united several cities in Cooltzine vol.3; Changes. Participating cities this year included Sofia, Belgrade, Novi Sad, London, Vienna, Berlin and Paris with speakers joining relevant panel discussions, but without hosting venues due to reformatting of the event as purely digital, in line with the health and safety regulations surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic.
In partnership with Residency No.7 in Istanbul, iksvy art was entrusted with choosing an artist to be the last artist-in-residence in No.7, and to explore gentrification through art. For this one-time project, we have chosen Clément Bedel, an artist currently based in Belgrade.
Montemero Art Residency is a collaborative project, curated/organized by iksvy art and hosted by Finca Montemero on the east coast of Spain. We are dedicated to sustainable ecology and alternative art production. We believe that the experience of living and creating in a different context has to be facilitated through collaboration and exchange.
Montemero Art Residency focuses on eco-art with an experimental educational programme curated by iksvy art and hosted by Finca Montemero. We offer workshops introducing alternative ways and materials to incorporate nature into diverse art practices.
On 18 May 2019, three cities explored together the idea of a shared space by taking part in Cooltsalon’s international collaboration project, which manifested in a one-day exhibition event, happening simultaneously across three time zones.
