CURATORIAL AXIS:

"SEED-PLANT-FRUIT"

Our curatorial line focuses on creations that emphasize the process as a whole. That is, in proposals that ensure, from their approach, the three crucial parts of the creative process:

1. 'Seed': refers to projects that must observe in depth the foundations of their proposal and that –in addition-, do not neglect the look at the sociocultural roots and the context from which they emerge and are nurtured.
2. 'Plant': They relate to the need for a solid, nourished and complete process, which, fed in depth by research, rises strengthened.
3. 'Fruit': Has to do with the result that is offered with a careful finish, and with creations -that you feel- that have the possibility of 'breathing' (from virtual, mixed and purposeful languages), and 'provide oxygen' to whoever receives them (being characteristic of contemporary art to oxygenate society, through its questioning of 'normality', for example).
