ESC-OUT: deviations of artistic practices in the public sphere

Dates: 6 February to 17 March 2019
Exhibition Opening: Tuesday 5 February, at 19.00
Where: 2nd Floor

ESC-OUT: deviations of artistic practices in the public sphere is a project by the ON MEDIATION/6 curatorial team and is part of the collaboration between the Contemporary Art Centre of Barcelona - Fabra i Coats and La Escocesa Open Factory for Analogical Creation

The project includes twelve proposals by resident artists at La Escocesa and has both an interdisciplinary vocation at the same time as an interinstitutional one. It also highlights the possible intersection between the different players in the artistic ecosystem. 

The work methodology aims to impact traditional mediation hierarchies, suggesting paths that enable artistic practices beyond the exhibition system and place them in the many outskirts of the art world.

A River Runs Through It  

Arianna Rinaldo (curator)

‘Ecosystem’ is one of those well-known words we learn at school, referring to an interconnected network where biological elements share a balanced living environment; an interdependent community in which all components interact and influence each other. 

Duae Collective (Silvia Campidelli / Luna Coppola) has been exploring and studying the river Besòs and its surroundings for two years, investigating its natural, urban and social ecosystem: an ongoing artistic research that has created a vast archive of aspects of the river that refer to its history, its biology and its existence within the city environment.
