Exhibition “Huidas y otras historias”, by the students of the Postgraduate Course in Photography and Editorial Design

  • Opening June 1st, 19h
  • Exhibition From June 1st to 16th 2017
  • EINA Espai Barra de Ferro (Barra de Ferro, 2, Barcelona)
  • From Monday to Saturday, from 4 to 8 PM
  • Exhibition open to the public

On 1st of June, the exhibition "Huidas y otras historias" will be held at EINA Espai Barra de Ferro, a Collective exhibition by the students of the Postgraduate Course in Photography and Editorial Design.

The photographs address the escape as guiding thread, a transparent thread that weaves the lights and shades of the buildings, spaces, landscapes, and the body itself.

The photographs, which have a coherence somewhat disturbing, being the work of different artists, come with a photobook.

The artists have designed their own publication, which goes beyond a complete series of images. It represents, in most cases, a new artistic work.

Students who participated: Raquel Ares, Adriana Artaloytia, Carmen Campos, Andrea Expósito, Ariadna Flores, Marcos Gómez Barker, Andrea Larrea, Gisela Pastor, Rosangela Salinas and Melissa Sánchez Brualla.

"Anatomia d'una illa a ulls clucs", Jordi Fulla’s project at Museu de Montserrat

On the 8th of April, Jordi Fulla, former student and professor, and current head of the EINA foundation, opens his facility, whose curator is the former professor Albert Mercadé, in the Museu of Montserrat, which can be visited during the summer in the room Pere Daura.

“Through the facility Anatomia d'una illa a ulls clucs, painter Jordi Fulla, has an unusual and divergent look on the aesthetic and cultural points between East and West. Eastern plastics and thought is one of the main inspiration sources for the painter from his first trip to Japan in 2005. Fulla visits the island again ten years later to initiate a new artistic movement, inspired in the values that captivated him: the acquiescence of the landscape, the transcendent essence of their culture, the telluric mystery of their islands and mountains. A view that the painter contrasts with his own habits as a western artist: the need for the intellectualization of images, the rational exploration of the world, the critical questioning of the gaze, the romantic mystery of the landscape… Sixteen months of arduous pictorial reflection, in close dialogue with the curator of the exhibition, Albert Mercadé, with who he will share, literary, pictorial and philosophical thoughts in order to reach the creation of a final plastic stage, which will aslo be the synthesis and outcome of a new and important holistic view towards the world.
