An exercise in violence. Guillermo Ros
The work of Guillermo Ros (Vinalesa, 1988) centres on the investigation of the relationship between contemporary systemic violence, artistic production and a personal “lore” manifested in a testimonial role. His study specifically addresses power relations, the legitimisation, justification and promotion of self-exploitation, and the role of the artist as an inexhaustible machine of schizophrenic production, more concerned with the final objective based on the catharsis of exhibition than with caring for his or her own human condition. Such a task materialises in the intervention of the exhibition space as though it were a newly frozen stage, where the dialogue between materials, forms and architecture speaks of the silence shrouding the production of any artwork during its final reception.
RENAU IN EXILE
This exhibition attempts to reconstruct the various historical and creative contexts to which the poster designer, photomontage artist, muralist and writer Josep Renau was forced to adapt in the course of his fascinating life. The show principally investigates two of the least known historical periods within his artistic production, his periods of exile in Mexico and in Communist Berlin.
Pinazo en el espacio público
The intention of this new exhibition on Ignacio Pinazo is to propose a new biopolitical focus on the part of his oeuvre made up of paintings and drawings that were largely produced by the artist for himself, and are therefore less academicist in their style and poetics.
Ensayos sobre lo cutre
L’exposició ‘Assajos sobre lo cutre‘ parteix del treball del «performancero», poeta i activista polític i cultural Miguel Benlloch (1954-2018). Allotjat en l’archivomiguelbenlloch.net, aquest portal reuneix els registres de les seues accions, escriptura i col·laboracions que mostren una mirada crítica a la identitat, un pensament des del cos i una escriptura que apareix en forma d’acció, fotografia, llibre, pregó, discurs o pancarta. Les operacions que Benlloch realitzarà amb la seua activitat política i estètica, a la calor del col·lectiu i de la vitalitat dels grups sociopolítics i artístics amb els quals es relaciona, es van conformant com un espai singular per a llegir i entendre el desenvolupament de l’art i l’activisme en l’Estat espanyol de canvi de segle, que ha posat en el centre dels discursos el debat i qüestionament de les categories binàries i heterocentrades.
The exhibition devoted to Mona Hatoum, a British artist of Palestinian origin gathers together a selection of sculptures, large-scale installations and works on paper created mostly in the last two decades. It is intended to serve as a tribute to an artistic oeuvre of great diversity and significance and to give the public in Valencia a first-hand, physical experience of the diversity and scope of her output presenting key works that have become iconic pieces of the contemporary art world.
La fotografía en medio
This exhibition project focuses on the role of the photographic image as a device of special significance within artistic practices after 1950. Questions related to the body and identity, memory and history, the public and political sphere, the role of the media or the phenomenon of mass consumption have permeated artistic proposals, which have incorporated photography as an expressive language, code or document in a process of hybridisation of the artistic media.
GLACIAL DECOY. Robert Rauschenberg - Trisha Brown. Caso de estudio
Trisha Brown’s choreography Glacial Decoy was previewed on 7 May 1979 at the Children’s Theater in Minneapolis (Minnesota). For the dancer, choreographer and artist (Aberdeen, Washington, 1936 – San Antonio, Texas, 2017), Glacial Decoy was a turning point in her career, as it was her first work conceived for the proscenium stage, following others made for alternative spaces. For this change of presentation venue, Trisha Brown brought on board the artist Robert Rauschenberg (Port Arthur, Texas, 1925 – Captiva Island, Florida, 2008), who she had met at Merce Cunningham’s studio in the early sixties and who had prior experience working with choreographers like Cunningham, Paul Taylor, Viola Farber and with the Judson Dance Theater.
