Mapping Art Valladolid

BY MARTA ÁLVAREZ GUILLÉN
@ VOL 3 ON OCT 31, 2013

#MappingArt Valladolid es un proyecto creado y diseñado por Marta Álvarez, Laura López, María Nieto, Ada Sánchezy Rodrigo Simón que que repiensa el mapa de la ciudad, advirtiendo de la falsedad de estas herramientas y de la necesidad de repensarlas y rescribirlas no ya como descripciones de lugar sino como descripciones psicosociales y afectivas, que den mejor cuenta de la realidad que trata de representarse.

Su interés es triple: localizar y visibilizar cada uno de los nodos que tejen la red cartográfica vallisoletana en torno al arte contemporáneo; hacer ver la necesidad de una mayor formación en torno arte contemporáneo y mostrar la precariedad real oculta tras el aparente opulento mundo del arte.

Fragility, Flowers and Contemporary Portraits

"What I love about the medium, is that it’s innate honesty. A drawing lets slip its own history."   In "Fragility, Flowers and Contemporary Portraits" from PechaKucha Night Sunshine Coast Vol. 18, Greer Townshend shares her passion for and practice of drawing.  Her work is frequently underpinned by the concept of fragility, whether related to the process of memory, language or the self. Greer's practice combines portraiture and elements of nature, inferring an inherent connection between the two, and denoting life cycles. Greer will be talking about her take on ‘creating’ contemporary portraiture including her current fascination with all things 'flowering'.
