#sea_youhere is a digital exhibition project by SEA Foundation. In this cross-cultural project we direct a diverse window of artistic and curatorial practices and embrace a variety of perspectives, experiments, concepts and personal stories. The curated year editon aims to share knowledge and expand the network of artists and curators from all over the world. We invite artists, curators and collectives to share three exemplary projects of their practice in the proxy space of Facebook, Instagram and our email newsletter.
Every month in 2019, SEA Foundation virtually hosted one artistic or curatorial practice by virtually showcasing three projects from their professional practice.

The Virtual Vitrine sea_youhere 2.00 revolves around the theme #artandsustainability. We face the climate crisis, depletion of resources, extinction of species, the social and political uncertainties. We believe that artist and curators are visionaries, change-makers, thinkers and positive values-keepers. Therefore, we are interested to see the new perspectives on how artists, curators and collectives relate to the theme of art and sustainability. What does it mean to be a sustainable artist? What is the focus of a sustainable artistic practice? With the theme #artandsustainability, we want to provide common ground for diverse individuals working in various media and disciplines while honouring their differences in culture, experience and perspective.
