Orientation trips
The Mondriaan Fund organises orientation trips for visual artists and mediators to Asia, Latin America and Africa since 2004. The trips are aimed at exchange and cooperation between visual art professionals.

Dear all,

On behalf of the Mondriaan Fund, the Flanders Arts Institute, the Danish Arts Foundation and Pro Helvetia, we would like to thank all the institutions and people that we visited/met during this orientation trip. You all really made this trip into a unique experience for us all. We surely hope that this trip will lead to future collaborations on both sides.

Many people have given the trip long-term support, and this is the opportunity to warmly thank them for their advice, help and making things possible: Alexia Tala (Santiago, Chile), Maria Irene Alcade and her staff at MAVI (Santiago, Chile), Constanza Guell, Elisa Ibáñez and Alfonso Diaz from Antenna (Santiago, Chile), Tony Evanko and Estefania Piedrahita from Casa tres Patios (Medellin), Emiliano Valdés and Cleo van der Veen from Museo de Arte Moderno de Medellin, Nydia Gutiérrez from Museo de Antioquia (Medellin), Claudia Segura from NC-Arte (Bogota), Su Tomesen (Amsterdam) and last but not least Kris Kong and Cristina for guiding us in Bogota.
