Tilting Axis is a roving project conceptualized by ARC Magazine and the Fresh Milk Art Platform Inc. The first iteration was hosted at Fresh Milk in Barbados on February 27 + 28, 2015 under the banner Tilting Axis: Within and Beyond the Caribbean | Shifting Models of Sustainability and Connectivity. The two-day conference brought together independent art organisations and museums operating across the Caribbean, U.S., E.U. and China. The goal of the meeting was to negotiate strategic regional and international alliances for the further development of infrastructure, production and markets for the Caribbean's visual arts sector.
A mid-point meeting, Tilting Axis 1.5, will take place in São Paulo, Brasil in collaboration with Southern Panoramas, 19 Contemporary Art Festival SESC_Videobrasil on October 8th. Tilting Axis 2.0 is being hosted by the Pérez Art Museum Miami from February 19-21 2016. This meeting will explore the current state of cultural work in the Caribbean, fortify networks, increase administrative and programming capacities, as well as transfer knowledge and funding opportunities to those working in the region.
