To focus on artistic education in the center of a formal and informal development means an important input to personal development as individuals in society. In the medium term artistic education should also facilitate the emergency of more exigent publics and give place to a mutual respect.
One of the main aim of LINEA DE COSTA NPO is to do public and actual creation closer in all activities, and to improve creativity, critical and reflexive capacity and personal competences.
Different activities involving art projects of collaborative artists memberships are tools to get those aims: artists meetings, creative workshops related to their works, round tables discussion, visits to the studios, etc.
ALL EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES ORGANIZED BY LINEA DE COSTA NPO ARE FREE.
Linea de Costa – Contemporary Art & Culture Visual Magazine- is a free and highly visual digital publication where each issue focuses on a particular theme. From the perspective of artists Pablo Alonso de la Sierra and Rocío Arévalo Vargas, many different aspects of contemporary culture are dealt with: the art form and the artists, fashion and architecture, cities and landscapes, urban and rural culture, gastronomy and education, people and events, animals and things... In March 2012 the Linea de Costa Cultural Association was born. This saw the Linea de Costa – Contemporary Art & Culture Visual Magazine- being integrated into the association's programes.
PINEA-LINEA DE COSTA is happy to be, for the second consecutive time, one of the partner platforms for the Future Generation Art Prize 2017.
The last edition of the prize in 2014 received over 4,000 applications from over 130 countries, and its 21 shortlisted artists participated in a special exhibition in Kiev. The winners were Nástio Mosquito (Angola) and Carlos Motta (Columbia), who split the $100.000 prize. The exhibition included 21 finalists, among whom were Neïl Beloufa (France), Cally Spooner (UK), GCC (Arabian Gulf Region), Ximena Garrido-Lecca (Peru), Kudzani Chiurai (Zimbabwe), and Cécile B. Evans (USA/Belgium).
After the great success of the third edition, we are pleased to launch the fourth edition of the prize, which will culminate with an exhibition of the shortlisted artists in Kiev in February 2017 and in Venice, Italy, in conjunction with the 57th Venice Biennale in May 2017.
