Galvanize 2006: "Visibly Absent" artists & draft schedule of events

The core of Galvanize 2006 is the "Visibly Absent" exhibition programme: nine projects by emerging artists shown at non-traditional sites in and around Port of Spain. The nine participating artists are Akuzuru, Tessa Alexander, Sabrina Charran, Gerard Gaskin, Marlon Griffith, Jaime Lee Loy, Parker Nicholas, Nikolai Noel, and Alex Smailes.

CCA will provide logistical support for the nine projects, and the Galvanize advisory board will work with the artists to develop their ideas in the specific contexts of the physical sites where they will be created and shown.

In the coming weeks, more information about the nine artists and their projects will be posted on this weblog.
