|ADN Galería - Adn Platform - Conversations On Art, Politics And Society|
||ADN Galería launches ADN Platform which consolidates the cultural contribution of the gallery through different actions:|
• ADN Curatorial Challenge: exhibition projects generated by an open call for curators.
• ADN Think Tank: public programs exploring the link between art and society.
• ADN Residencies: artists and curators' residencies.
The program of activities will transcend the physical space of the initiative in order to host proposals that will be developed into the new facilities of Sant Cugat, at the gallery space in Barcelona, hors murs, or online.
Within the context of ADN Think Tank and in collaboration with the collective Azotea (Ane Aguirre and Juan Canela), a series of round tables condensed under the title: Vertex. Conversations on art, politics and society will start this month until June 2013.
Vertex. Conversations on art, politics and society wants to launch some questions, and present a series of examples and ways of acting, thinking about all these matters and bringing out a place for reflection and discussion around the position of art in the processes of the present, while debating about its potential as an active agent. Through discussion tables, activities and a final exhibition the aim is to trace lines of thinking and action from a critical and self-critical position, hearing other agents' voices and proposals, in order to know and understand ineffective choices and try to draw new options for the future.
The first session of this series will be held at ADN Galería on Thursday 24th January at 7.00 pm and will explore some lines of thought related with the junction of art, politics and society. Federico Campagna, Joanna Warsza and Yaiza Hernández will be the speakers for this first discussion and will bring a vision from a theoretical perspective. Enclosed you will find their biographies.
The following round table is planned for the second half of April and will analyze the work method of diverse artistic agents who will debate on how their practice undertakes with art, politics and society from a critical angle. Finally, the third meeting and closure of the series, foreseen for the last week of June, will focus on the process and the tools of action for art. In that specific case we will examine practices which aim to affect in processes of transformation, willing to contribute with tools and solutions for the current moment. Shortly we will facilitate more information about these two future conferences.
We kindly appreciate the confirmation of assistance due to the limited capacity and the implementation of simultaneous translation.
