The exhibition culminates the course of this grant, reflecting the extent of artistic interests and practices. Each project on display must be understood as a work in itself, as a unique invitation to get involved in the languages and networks that the artists have been building over the past two years. They are joined by the context in which we live, permeable to the current economic, ecological and social crises, whilst committed to the creation of new alliances and representation strategies to come up with other potential formats.
