ABOUT ARTPORT

ARTPORT is a series of international arts exchange projects that travel to several PORTS in order to create sustainable artistic networks across cultures and to promote cross-fertilization between the art world and the real world. With every project, more PORTS will be added.

HURAKAN is ARTPORT’s first project, featuring exhibitions, panels, and residencies between New York and Valencia, Spain, from spring-winter 2008. HURAKAN explores artists’ responses to Global Warming and creates synergies among artists and climate change experts in order to generate awareness across the Atlantic.

HURAKAN builds on the ties that have been created between the two cities with Valencia’s star architect Santiago Calatrava designing the new World Trade Center transportation hub in New York City. It is one of the cleanest construction sites in the U.S. and in sync with Mayor Bloomberg’s greeNYC plan 2030.

ARTPORT_1: HURAKAN is officially supported by
The New York Foundation for the Arts
The Regional Autonomous Government of Valencia
UNESCO Valencia
