About New Geographies
The East Contemporary Visual Arts Network (ECVAN) has launched New Geographies, a three-year partnership between nine arts organisations in the East of England, many local Outreach partners and three Dutch partners; Casco: Office for Art, Design & Theory, De Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten and the curatorial group ‘If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want to be Part of Your Revolution’.
Throughout Summer of 2017, we asked people to nominate overlooked or unexpected places in the region that they find meaningful and interesting to them. By asking ‘what is a forgotten place that you think is important to highlight?’. We want more people to share their stories, building upon an active discussion with the potential to connect us to each other and to re-imagine our idea of ‘place’.
In response to these nominations, ECVAN have commissioned artists – from the UK and internationally – to highlight some of those places with new site-specific work. This combination of local knowledge and world-class art seeks to create a new vision of the East of England as a place to encounter excellent art in unexpected places. Each of our Dutch partners have provided advice and support throughout the selection process, ensuring we take a fresh and innovative approach to the array of commissions that can be created.
