Let's talk about Trees, people and other animals, with Amelia Jones, art historian, and Teresa Grandas, curator of the exhibition Fina Miralles. I Am All the Selves that I Have Been. Conversation in English with an available simultaneous translation.
Fina Miralles’ work makes us rethink our relationship with the environment, as living beings, as individuals who respond to a cultural, social and political construction. It challenges us as individuals, as a group, as spectators. First questioning her own role as an artist and that of the work of art, Miralles then makes us re/consider what we are as subjects in relation to the environment in which we live, as well as our reaction to the work. One of the key aspects of Amelia Jones’ work is precisely her exploration of how the notion of subject is articulated. Teresa Grandas will talk to her about this issue and about how Miralles’ work is seen from the context of an international perspective.
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.
