CARMEN CALVO. Premi Julio González 2022
On the occasion of the Julio González Award being granted to Carmen Calvo (Valencia, 1950), IVAM has organized an exhibition which reviews the principal lines of this artist’s research from the late 1960s to the present time. To a large extent, one of Carmen Calvo’s works supports the recovery and re-creation of images and of discarded objects. In her complex creative process, the artist constructs her personal view of the world activating mechanisms such as daydreams, memories, desires and fears.
EN UNA CASA. Genealogía del trabajo del hogar y los cuidados
In a house, the project by Alba Herrero (València, 1986) and Ana Peñas (València, 1987) was conceived specifically for Gallery 3 at IVAM. It introduces the hybrid nature between the graphic narrative and social research and focuses on housework and domestic work, carried out away from one’s own home, in the privacy of someone else’s home, whether or not this is part of the formal or informal economy. This is a feminised and insecure type of work, where the social construct of its responsibility is mirrored as an inherently female matter. Despite the centrality of this work to the sustainability of life, historically, it has been invisible and displaced within areas such as economics and politics, which today leads us to collectively ask, how do we look after homes and how would we like to do so?
INDUSTRY/MATRICES, THREADS AND SOUNDS
Industry. Matrices, threads and sounds is a hybrid proposal that is situated between the creation of an archive and an artistic project. Its objective is to offer a necessarily partial reading of Valencian industrial heritage based on the sound, the intangible and social movements. The proposal is developed through the compilation of sounds, processes, images, videos, music, art pieces and discourses linked to factories in their original context of use, but also in their abandonment and their conversion into heritage spaces. Industry focuses particularly on the proactive uses of industrial heritage driven by citizens.
Mar Arza. A pesar / A saber / A palpes
The exhibition Mar Arza. A pesar / A saber / A tientas (In spite / In short / In darkness) is a specific project by Mar Arza for Gallery 3. Designed as an installation, which has brought together archaeological pieces that are displayed in dialogue with works by Julio González and works by the artist herself. By juxtaposing some of these examples of cultures of different geographical and temporary origins, you can perceive one continuous thread in the gestures and nuances of the human condition. Successive clues are shown that hold they hypothesis of the continued existence of shapes: those that are transmitted through time and coexist in the shared imagination.
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.
