SOUTH AMERICA ORIENTATION TRIP 2009
For several years the Mondriaan Foundation in association with the Prins Claus Fonds, BAM and OCA, has been organizing an annual foreign orientation trip for art professionals to lesser-known regions of the world.
In 2009, the trip took place from 1 till 13 March. The group visited museums, galleries and met people working in the field of contemporary art in Sao Paulo (Brazil), Buenos Aires (Argentina) and Lima (Peru).
The goal of this orientation travel is to extend international networks and contacts, and to stimulate the international dialogue between art professionals. A selected number of institutions, such as galleries and museums, will be visited. With this initiative, the organizations want to contribute to a quality intercultural dialogue, stimulating future exchanges between art institutions and individuals from different countries.
