Alba Mayol Curci

Long term residency

may 2018 - 2020

Alba Mayol Curci. Barcelona, 1979

Graduated in English Studies from the University of Barcelona and MA in Theory and Aesthetics of Contemporary Art from the Autonomous University of Barcelona-Fundació Joan Miró, she obtains a postgraduate degree in Visual Culture from the University of Barcelona and studies photography at Central Saint Martins College. She participates in workshops and seminars led by Dora García, Gayatri Spivak and others on psychoanalysis, feminism and deconstruction.

She begins to work with text, drawing and photography out of an interest in marginal practices and techniques, and against the grain of received academic discourses, especially those centered on classicism of canonical literature and visuality. From this point she moves towards a link with political contexts, to explore the possibilities of approaching the concept of militancy or activism from the areas of subjectivity. She exhibits and develops projects at Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart, Bòlit Center d’Art Contemporani, Can Felipa Arts Visuals, Eastern Bloc Montreal, Arts Santa Mònica, Museu Abelló, Sala d’Art Jove, Fabra i Coats, among others.

She has simultaneously worked in the Cooperativa General Humana project, on the possibilities of dissecting theater as a bourgeois genre, interrelating installation, action and performance with video-art. Projects have been presented at, among others, Hamaca-Museo Reina Sofía, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Madrid Escena Contemporánea, Fokus Videoart Festival Copenhagen, Loop Videoart Festival.

She has published writings in a number of specialized media such as A*Desk, Unlikely Journal for Creative Arts, Graf and L’Espill Universitat de València.
