Museu d'Art de Sabadell

Free with prior reservation. Limited capacity.

Let’s talk about If you join life as a living being with Tamara Díaz Bringas, researcher and independent curator, accompanied by Maia Creus, professor of Contemporary Art and researcher. In collaboration with MAS.

We are holding our conversation in the Fina Miralles archive, donated entirely by the artist to the Sabadell Art Museum. From her home, she questions the conditions of truth of the archive itself, as well as the forces that are forming and transforming it, and the practices of exhibition, criticism, research and collection. She addresses the work of Fina Miralles relatedly, avoiding the operations that separate work and document, major and minor works, inside and outside a given field. She follows the threads that connect the poetry and readings of Fina’s practice through her most reproduced works: Dona-arbre (1973) and Recobriment del cos amb palla (1975). With these works as a starting point and destination, she draws the connection with other creations by the artist, suggesting intermittent links or intuitions that make connections through to the present. Learn with Fina, together with Amerindian cosmogonies, to be part of the world and to embrace it based on the experience of the living.

Place: Museu d'Art de Sabadell.
Booking: email mas@ajsabadell or telephone 93 725 77 47 during the museum’s opening hours to the public, which is Tuesday through Saturday from 5 to 8 pm and Sundays from 11 am to 2 pm.

The programme Let’s talk about generates discussions on the Museum’s exhibitions between the different agents and artists in the city and our regular public. It is a meeting point that regards exhibitions as powerful devices capable of activating the imagination and generators of discourses that often go beyond the preconceived readings of the institution or the curatorial team.
