Contrastes program

The “Contrastes” program is based on the invitation to different experts of the Spanish State or international, to give rise to the visibility, training and exchange between different communities and regions between the intergenerational and the transboundary. It is an initiative aimed at enabling knowledge, tutoring and exchange between different geographical areas.

The objective is to produce:

• Visibility
• Training
• Artist exchange

It is a research activity to approach different contexts: that of the artists and active agents of contemporary art in the community of the Balearic Islands with that of the curators and researchers that are integrated into this program. The visibility is carried out in the Observatori and lntermedi spaces of Es Baluard and in the places and forums that the researchers consider appropriate to the philosophy and dynamics of each project.

The curatorial collective 1erEscalón, from Murcia, was the first guest on the “Constrastes” program last October 2017, developing its activity in different phases.
