Es Baluard and 1er Escalón present the publication «A tiro de piedra: acercar lo posible» edited by the curatorial group, which will be attended by the director of the museum, Nekane Aramburu, and its three members: Isabel Durante, Ana García Alarcón and Miguel Ángel Hernández
This edition is the result of the residency carried out in Es Baluard by 1st Stage at the end of 2017 within the framework of the «Contrastes» program, an initiative aimed at developing knowledge, tutoring and exchange between different geographical areas. The texts condense the results and reflect on the distance and the insular condition, on the need to look for new exhibition formats in precarious times and on the power and urgency of a thought of the possible.
It is about partial, affective approaches that only aim to point out relevant issues of the art of our days. Issues that also unfold in the thoughts of some artists from the Balearic Islands participating in the program (Daniel Amorós, María Alcaraz, Irene de Andrés, José Fiol, Mar Guerrero, Julià Panadès, Marina Planas, Marta Pujades, Fran Simó, Laia Ventayol y Damià Vives) who, apart from reflecting on the meaning of art in the present, describe their possible, postponed, dreamed or future projects. Intangible works that transform this book into a traveling museum without walls, an exhibition of invisible works, a materialization of desires that, when narrated, communicated, in some way become reality.
In this project they have collaborated: Illenc, Balearia, Bconnected and Centro de Estudios Visuales de la Universidad de Murcia (VISUM).
