Limited capacity (50 people for visit).
He has developed an extensive work in photography, video, experimental cinema and cultural journalism, especially as an art critic at La Vanguardia newspaper, and previously as a film and music critic. His photographic work is abstract and focuses on topics such as light, energy, water and the flow of time. He has published poetry books, such as Antinaufragios (Antisinkings) and Subespecies humanas (Human subespecies). He has curated exhibitions and experimental film programs, and he is also the author of comic scripts drawn by Guillem Cifré, Pere Joan and Antoni Calonge.
The work of Ignasi Aballí permanently challenges the attention and perception of the viewer. Using strategies characteristic of conceptual art, such as text, archives and documents, his projects subvert distinctions between artistic genres such as painting, literature, photography, installation, film and video and also question the system of conventions of the representation of the work of art and the cultural or economic value of the objects.
Txema Yeste began his career as a reporter after completing his photographic studies in Barcelona and Birmingham. His stunning pictures are the combination of high-end technique, a sophisticated imaginary world and a perfectionist eye. Txema publishes regularly in some of the most influential fashion magazines in the world: Numéro France, Numéro China, Vogue Italia, Vogue Russia, Vogue Spain, Vanity Fair France and Harper’s Bazaar USA. High end brands like Armani, Roberto Cavalli, Lancôme and Viktor & Rolf choose Txema for their most important advertising campaigns. Txema continuously works in personal projects to fulfil his artistic soul. He is currently working in a very ambitious project in order to document traditional costumes in Spain.
