Madrid, Thursday, January 19, 2017. The ONE PROJECT Program, composed by eight projects in solo-show format and curated by Carlos Delgado Mayordomo, presents a selection of 8 Spanish and Latin American artists reflecting on the concepts of territory, displacement and identity.
Unpublished projects, site-specific pieces, dialogue between artists, narrativity and discourse, are the elements that define the ONE PROJECT Program of Art Madrid Contemporary Art Fair.
On this occasion, Carlos Delgado Mayordomo has chosen 8 artists whose current work deals with the concept of TERRITORY. They are:
• Rubén Martín de Lucas (Madrid, 1977). BAT alberto cornejo Gallery (Madrid)
• Mariajosé Gallardo (Villaf. de los Barros, Badajoz, 1978). Espacio Olvera (Seville) • Irene Cruz (Madrid, 1987). Fifty Dots Gallery (Barcelona)
• Renato Costa (Río de Janeiro, Brasil, 1974). Javier Silva Gallery (Valladolid)
• Acaymo S. Cuesta (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, 1983). La Isla Gallery (Madrid)
• Keke Vilabelda (Valencia, 1986). Kir Royal Gallery (Madrid)
• Eloy Arribas (Valladolid, 1991). Silves Contemporary Art (Huércal-Overa, Almería) • Ernesto Rancaño (Havana, Cuba, 1968), South Border Gallery (Beirut, Lebanon)
The set that forms ONE PROJECT AM17 “reflects on the connection between creation, place, displacement, identity and memory. The selected artists place their accent on the metropolis, architecture and the body as scenarios in a permanent state of latent change” as explains Carlos Delgado Mayordomo.
“From very heterogeneous ideological and discursive canons, the 8 artists pose works that are not linked to a scenario of strong territorial significance, but linked to a global world increasingly marked by their diasporas and readaptations” adds the curator.
