Dive and Immersion, Espai 13 exhibition program 2022 at Fundació Joan Miró
Pere Llobera, curator, and Martina Millà, head of exhibitions department of the Fundació, have resented Dive and Immersion, the exhibition program for Espai 13, Fundació Joan Miró, for the 2022 season, in collaboration with Fundació Banc Sabadell.
The project surveys the state of the art of painting over the course of four exhibitions by artists from the local scene employing a wide range of the many languages used in our context. The shows by Victor Jaenada, Marcel Rubio Juliana, Marria Pratts and Martín Vitaliti showcase the tremendous possibilities afforded by the notion of expanded painting in conjunction with methodologies and research from the world of emerging art.
Jaenada, Rubio Juliana, Pratts and Vitaliti thread these same concepts through their own projects in a tragic and lucid vein. In their installations, artefacts and paintings, all four artists-dubbed "natural painters" by Pere Llobera-address the need to find their own voice in this cyclical succession. The title of the series also hints symbolically at these artists’ deeply felt, radical commitment to their work.
