14.05 Inauguration in la Capella of “L’un i el múltiple” (One and the Multiple)

This exhibition features the work of artists who have participated in artists’ residence exchange programmes between institutions in Spain and Egypt during 2008 and 2009. The exhibition deconstructs cultural and artistic clichés showing the unity of the Mediterranean while, at the same time, the individual diversity of its artists.
Each project is concerned with observing, discovering and map-making (literally and metaphorically). Using mainly photography and video – although there are also maps, interactive installations and embroidery – the artists explore the complex realities of our contemporary societies, using art to question, investigate and portray our surroundings.

The participating institutions from Egypt are CIC, Townhouse, Artellewa and Medrar.
The institutions from Spain are Hangar, LABoral and CAN Farrera.
