Puntos de Fuga
Miro Foundation

20.08.12 31.08.12

Invited by the Pilar and Joan Miró Foundation in Mallorca, Alicia Candiani is currently in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, directing Punto de Fuga: graphic field practices expanded one of the three Graphic Workshops that the Fundación Miró developed during 2012. With Spanish artists from Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Tarragona, Alicante, Seville and Palma de Mallorca, the group is working on the Joan Miró engraving workshop at Son Boter under the magic of the place and the spirit of the artist.

Vanishing Point is a collaborative work that covers various theoretical and technical aspects related to contemporary graphics using as pivot the new techniques of dry photolithography (waterless) and its hybridization with digitally printed images, with the aim of expanding the creative possibilities of the participants within what has come to be called “expanded graphics”, that is, its extension to other formats, media and processes, this time the appropriation of the offset commercial reproduction media (photo- dry lithography) and digital printing.

 

ABOUT THE MIRO FOUNDATION’S GRAPHIC WORKSHOPS AT MALLORCA

The Fundació Pilar i Joan Miró a Mallorca was founded following the donation by Joan Miró and his family to the city of Palma, in 1980, of the four studio workshops where he had worked intensely from 1956 until his death, so that they could become a stimulus for future generations of artists.

Miró expressed a desire for the spirit of creativity and transgression to live on after his death and the dream came true with Son Boter. The workshops have conserved that desire to act as a springboard for experimentation in a wide diversity of artistic fields. Year after year, in this privileged setting, young artists and other more established ones carry out projects,exchange ideas and share their creative experiences.

The Latin America's Paris

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
