Today (June 2), the programme of Cáceres Abierto continued with activities that were developed mainly at the Cáceres Museum and the Filmoteca de Extremadura cultural institution.
We started the day at 17:30 at the Cáceres Museum with a conversation between the artist Andrés Talavero and the curator Miguel F. Campón, titled “El Silencio del cuerpo, el decir de las nubes” (The silence of the body, the voice of the clouds), on the essential concepts that give consistency and cohesion to Andrés’s work, as observed in the exhibition “Silencio” (Silence), which was opened a few hours later at the Kernel Art Gallery and which can be visited until July 15.
Following that, at the same museum and with the support of Mª del Mar Lozano Bartolozzi, Professor of Art History at the University of Extremadura, a review of the artistic trajectories with Diana Larrea and Isabel León was conducted, along with a presentation of the artistic creations of both artists for Cáceres Abierto 2017. The subsequent panel discussion with the public was also joined by the artist Blanca Gracia, who presented her video installation together with that of other artists in the exhibition which was later opened at the Casa de los Caballos of the Cáceres Museum.
The day was concluded at the Filmoteca de Extremadura cultural institution where the documentary film Matria, written, directed and produced by the Mexican artist Fernando Llanos, was screened in front of a large audience. Fernando, who has accompanied us in all the activities performed throughout the week, had a conversation with all the attendees once the screening was finished.
This is the brief account of a new and complete day of Cáceres Abierto activities which will continue with an interesting programme at the A. Rodríguez-Moñino/M. Brey Public Library on June 3, which you can read about here: www.caceresabierto.com/programa
