As part of  CBAT's charter, we look to develop links with like-minded local and international arts organisations, foundations, institutions, and funders.  As such we are pleased to work with a number of partner organizations in the UK and Latin America.  Below is a summary of collaboration projects we have undertaken.

CBAT's partnership with Gasworks started in 2019 with CBAT's first sponsorship of an up-and-coming Bolivian artist (Andrés Bedoya) for a three month residency with Gasworks.

Gasworks is a prestigious contemporary visual art organization that provides studios for London-based artists; commissions emerging UK-based and international artists to present their first major exhibitions in the UK;  and develops a highly-respected international residencies programme, offering international artists the opportunity to research and develop new work in London.

CBAT creates opportunities for connecting Bolivian artists with the SDCLEAR’s research initiatives in contemporary art and heritage research relating to their collection. SDCELAR invited Sharon Pérez, whose practice focuses on the visibility of Afro-descendant identity, to participate in an artist residency (partially in London and partially in Bolivia) between January and March 2022.   The residency will focus on carnival costumes from the Andes, with a particular attention paid to costumes related to the morenada and negrería dances.

The Santo Domingo Centre of Excellence for Latin American Research (SDCELAR) is based at the British Museum; founded in 2019. It supports cultural heritage initiatives that are developed in Latin America and aims to create a network of communities that are interested in the heritage and material culture of the region.

 CBAT is co-sponsoring with Auto Italia the exhibition Amaru’s Tongue: Daughter, a newly commissioned moving image work and the first international solo exhibition by multidisciplinary Bolivian artists Chuquimamani-Condori (Elysia Crampton Chuquimia) and Joshua Chuquimia Crampton.

 

Auto Italia is an artist-run organization and project space that commissions new work, bringing together international networks of artists committed to the development of emerging practices and discussions in contemporary art.

 

CBAT partnered with KIOSKO to co-sponsor the Bolivian Ivan Cáceres artistic residency in 2019 at URRA  (Buenos Aires, Argentina).

Kiosko Galeria is an independent artist led gallery established in 2006 that disseminates and promotes contemporary art in Santa Cruz, Bolivia.
