Let’s talk about The tree of life, with Juan Canela
The Tree of Life is a story that interweaves personal experiences with curatorial readings of Fina Miralles’ practice, among which the voices of other artists appear, conversing with her work. The idea is to generate a dialogue with Fina’s exhibition at the MACBA, trying to convey some vital links that have developed around her, touching on some essential aspects of her journey and her relevance at the present time.
'Austerity and Utopia' is the first in a series looking at other potential narratives for mapping our current landscape through redefining the social, political and economic terms of engagement.
