ABOUT US

ABOUT US – OUR MISSION

 

13 ESPACIOarte as an independent center for contemporary art and creation. It opened its doors in February 2017.

Born in a spirit of collaboration with the rest of the cultural, artistic and social communities as well as providing space for all kinds of artistic manifestations, from the visual arts, artist books, performance and design, to dance, music and literature, while maintaining a special commitment to contemporary audiovisual art and film.

Art as an artistic experience should lead us to debate, understanding and knowledge. This is why analysis, reflection and experimentation shape and define our vision, working from a cross disciplinary approach to contemporary art.

We want to serve as a meeting point for people who approach contemporary creation from diverse perspectives and backgrounds. To do this, our programming tries to unite and strengthen both specialized viewpoints of art professionals, as well as common or shared cultures that are built in neighborhood associations and local communities.

We have developed several interconnected projects in our programming for a diverse but focused network, creating an eclectic and enriching fabric. These projects or sections are:

  • LOOSE TONGUES a program based on art theory and practice that is dedicated to the visibility of women in art.
  • THE YELLOW HOUSE, When I was a young girl, there was an abandoned and half-ruined house, painted a faded yellow right next to my house. The half hidden in the entrance gave us a feeling of privacy. When my cousin Maria Carmen and I didn’t know what to do with ourselves or what to play, we went to the steps of the yellow house to chat. It was our private space for thinking and plotting. In this section, with each debate, discussion forum, talk or conference, we will “plot” our way into contributing to the public discourse.
  • CONNECTION, a program in which 13ESPACIOarte makes its facilities available to the community for all kinds of activities that promote individual and collective artistic expression.

Our vision is implemented through an intense and above all, carefully curated cultural program, with artistic projects, exhibitions, meetings, festivals, conferences, workshops, presentation of books, discussion forums and all kinds of events. We are open to all ideas and innovative and creative proposals.
