Supported by CNP Partners, this year the fair is focusing on “The Future“. This section presents a selection of 20 galleries, in addition to a programme of events curated by Chus Martínez, Rosa Lleó and Elise Lammer.
Designed by Andrés Jaque, the section “What is going to happen is not the future, but what we are going to do”, is conceived as an open presentation of the different works by the selected artists. Around twenty artists are present in this space, reflecting a diversity in both the generations and the artistic language set to propose the idea of the future as a form of training to get closer to the mindset of the artists and their issues and challenges. The Future conceived as an effort, an ongoing exercise of acknowledgement, producing space, imagining difference and avoiding the platitude of standard views of life.
In addition the curators are directing the Seminar Caressing the future. A tribute to the great Bola de Cristal, a day of theory organised into two sessions: a morning session with artists and professionals, and an afternoon session which will begin with an intervention by Timothy Morton.
