Casa AmaCord is a curatorial initiative championing an eclectic roster of Latin American emerging and mid-career artists and designers.
Through institutional projects and curated exhibitions merging fine and decorative arts, Casa AmaCord intends to add new voices to the Art historical canon by forging international collaborations where creatives may reflect, present, and discuss their common practices and unrealised projects.
Stemming from this new light of heritage, vision, and passion, Casa AmaCord constitutes an umbrella concept promoting several yearly key projects that seek out innovative creations, foster artistic collaboration, and cross-practice exploration through exhibition programming and institutional projects in London.
Art has the profound ability to change our social consciousness and inspire real change. However, preserving the past, educating the present, and shaping the future come at an obvious cost. We believe that the privileged experience of art should not come at the expense of the environment.
Our modus operandi is designed to reduce and offset our carbon footprint as well as support climate-focused initiatives while our programming involves an effort to embed environmental subjects and methods throughout. We view, foster, and talk about art in ways that effect change and complement the work of education and science to protect the world art inhabits.
