Elopement, or to elope is to run away with a lover, a term more specifically used to refer to a secret or hurried marriage. With Elopement, HMK brings about an exchange with a partner organization outside Europe and the Western influence. The exchanges’ main goal is to effect equal exchange of professional knowledge. Throughout both exchanges curators and artists share knowledge, gain insight into each other’s practices, both artistically as well as organisationally, and establish international contacts and visibility.

HMK {Hotel MariaKapel} and Lugar a Dudas

In 2013 Elopement will take place in Lugar A Dudas in Cali, Colombia and HMK {Hotel MariaKapel} in Hoorn, the Netherlands. Lugar a Dudas and HMK got into contact through the ArtsCollaboratory forum in 2010, the idea emerged to start an exchange between both residencies. LaD and HMK started to exchange ideas, in order to further develop this collaboration. Both HMK and LaD aim to develop partnerships with art-initiatives internationally, in order to improve artistic mobilization, establish international contacts en improve global presence for both residencies.
