la micro

la micro La Micro es un piso compartido en la ciudad de Barcelona que funciona como espacio expositivo centrado en los artistas. Muestra exposiciones periódicas de artistas infrarrepresentados que se especializan en arte performativo y visual.

A través de este proyecto, un piso habitado se transforma en una galería de arte viviente. El pasillo, el salón e incluso el baño de nuestro apartamento acogen exposiciones periódicas de una duración de 24 horas, convirtiendo así la Micro en un contrapeso doméstico a espacios institucionales donde el arte es habitualmente expuesto. La Micro reta a sus asistentes a repensar su definición de exposición y alienta a los artistas a relacionarse con espacios de uso cotidiano. Este proyecto quiere dar espacio a prácticas artísticas de valor mientras pone sobre la mesa como cuestión fundamental qué sucede cuando el arte vuelve a casa. ********************************ENGLISH********************************** La micro is a shared flat in the city of Barcelona that works as an artist-centred exhibition space. It showcases the periodical exhibition of underrepresented artists working in the visual and performing arts. With this project, an inhabited apartment transforms into a living art gallery. The corridors, the living room, and even the bathroom of our flat periodically welcome 24-hour long exhibitions, converting la micro into a domestic counterpart of dominant institutionalized spaces where art is usually exhibited. La micro challenges participants to re-think their definition of art exhibition and encourages artists to relate to everyday living spaces. This project wants to give room to valuable artistic practice while raising the fundamental question of what happens when art comes back home.

Young people in the art world are disproportionately likely to get financial help from their parents. Can only rich kids afford careers in the arts?

"Apartment galleries offer viable alternatives to see art outside of commercially focused, white cube gallery spaces, and to witness a more intimate, inclusive side of the art world."

Things here in la micro are going a bit slowly due to x-mas shenanigans. We belatedly wish a very happy new year to all of you! As long as Patty Smith - the Patron Saint of our project is still alive, there is a dash of hope for a more promising 2017.

Here's a photo from our first exhibition taken by Paloma Mateos - Filmmaker​. Many more will follow soon. Stay tuned.

Get your artsy clothes people, we are almost ready for the opening!

Here you find all about Alessandra Cecchini the last (but not least) of our protagonists! See you tomorrow!

Alessandra Cecchini (‘90) lives and works in Bologna. During her studies at the Fine Arts Academies of Perugia and Bologna she delved into the concepts of memory and oblivion. Finalist of the Francesco Fabbri Prize for Contemporary Art 2016, Cecchini keeps investigating these concordant - and possibly not mutually exclusive - concepts by alluding to authors and artists that have embraced these two notions such as Debord, Augé, Sontag, Yates, Calvino, Weinrich, Goya, Agnetti, Boltanski, Richter, Kiefer and Cardiff. Despite her experimentation with various artistic modes like installation, sculpture or sound art, her work chiefly stems from drawing, which upholds the matrix of her artistic language.

Més sobre els protagonistes de l'exposició que obre aquest dissabte, ens veiem a partir de les 18!

Enric Lax Sulé ('92) és un il•lustrador que viu i treballa actualment a Granollers. Va estudiar il•lustració a Barcelona i després va fer un màster en il•lustració editorial a l’Acadèmia de Belles Arts de Bolonya. Fou finalista dels Premis Junceda 2014 pel seu primer projecte Jack, un treball sobre la despersonalització i els límits de la tecnologia a la societat actual. La seva obra està constituïda d’històries que tenen un cert caire de crítica social i que s’expressen a través d’imatges que ens transporten a un més enllà que al poc resulta vagament quotidià. L’Enric entén l’il•lustració com una eina de comunicació, un llenguatge educatiu que serveix per explicar com, segons ell, l’art pot arribar a canviar el món o, com a mínim, no deixar-nos indiferents.

Hey hey, it's Thursday evening - a quite obscure moment in the week we think. Well, time to present you another partaker in our upcoming exhibition, this time from Greece!

Aristeidis Lappas was born in Athens in 1993; he attended university in the UK and after his graduation he returned to Athens where he now lives and works. In his artworks, Lappas focuses on big city life and the day-to-day experiences of the people living in it. Drawing inspiration from architecture, music and urban culture, he conveys a simplified – almost naive – perspective of his environment. Through this approach, he induces the audience to re-look at their surroundings and question them with a regained childish curiosity, unaffected by prepossessed notions and ideals.

We are excited to introduce you the protagonists of la micro's opening exhibition - Intersections: connecting the dots.

Marchien Veen ('91) is an interdisciplinary artist based out of Vancouver, Canada. Veen's practice circulates around concepts of futile labour and digital intimacy, often placing herself in the position of a faulty machine or virtual experience. Her performative video work invites the viewer to engage in a one-sided encounter, touching upon concepts of consent and anonymity in digital acts of intimacy.
