Dates: 28 June to 21 July 2019
Exhibition Opening: Thursday 27 June, 19.00
Where: Espai Zero
The exhibition presents the results of the work carried out by post-graduate students on the Master’s in Production and Artistic Research at the University of Barcelona, as part of the Art and Intermedia Contexts specialisation. The intermediary nature is especially underscored through multidisciplinary experimental lines, artistic practices in continuous expansion and research processes that regenerate the arts.
The projects by this year’s artists reveal the plurality of expressions and relations with the world and thought. From different positions, inquiries and registers, we will find cross-border migratory poetics (Catalina Piedrahita), alterations of urban spheres (Valeria Castillo), deconstructions of the Handbook for Good Artists (Sara Lorite), art-work occupational confrontations (Joshua Perkin) and perturbed perceptions of materiality (Domingo Portela). Also, vindication of a decontaminated childhood (Cai Saiyin), research on the hidden divine (Joan Villaplana), cartography of connections (Fèlix Pons), recreation of a garden of emotional relationships (Daniela Vargas), the media questioning of suffering (Mònica Porta) and the ritual of ecological healing (Maria Marvila).
Some of the artists have held residencies at the Art Factory of Barcelona – Fabra i Coats, sharing the last stage of their studies and the artistic production of their Final Masters Projects. The purpose of the collaboration between ICUB (Culture Institute of Barcelona) and UB (University of Barcelona) is to make the transfer of artistic research effective and to open up the necessary channels of cultural permeability for the results, within the contemporary intricacies of the city.
