SUMMARY OF THE PROGRAM AGM

 

The International Meeting of Contemporary Art ARTE GIRA MOVING. AGM is a program of exchange of knowledge, works and innovative processes in the cultural management and of the visual arts, in a constant way. With AGM reexpositions are going to be stimulated in the thoughts and in the current processes inside the world of the art. The edition IV of ARTE GIRA joins to new virtual platforms that beside being spaces of visual art are going to turn into interactive references of communication.

 

AGM's aim is participants exchange between the countries: Spain, Holland, Italy, France and Cuba you act and professional experiences so much artistic as in cultural management and comisariado. This program arises from an imperious need to share in continuity like crowdsorcing, cultural and artistic contents so that they are going to to force us to the conscience of which the universality of the art and the possibilities of cultural exchange established in a natural and necessary way are more than a reality, far from be establishing since this way it seems that lately it is defined as a great chimera.

 

AGM's programming takes four basic concepts as a link of union: the reflection, the international cooperation, the stimulus and the creation.

 

REFLECTION: to develop contents based on solid and that can be consolidated arguments.

 

INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION: between the artists, managers and commissioners structuring viable channels of diffusion of contents.

 

STIMULUS: to continue generating knowledge, study, experimentation and investigation.

 

CREATION: to accede to the most original and risky processes.

 

COLLECTIVE EXHIBITION SPACE OF MIRROR

BASES OF PARTICIPATION

 

Date of Celebration. From September 16 to October 15.

 

In this contemporary world that invades us contextualmente, the words or short, made phrases or not, they are those who apparently produce all our actions and more dramatically our immediate decisions or not. This fact so lightly exposed is what reflects a current company that moves for impulses or messages more that analyzed and investigated for big " mass-media gurus ".

 

In a world in which the individualities have joined virtual groups that guide the global actions, it seems that the reflection been an expert on a literal way " action to consider newly or held up a little ", is losing his sense.

 

It becomes increasingly necessary and almost we would say with character of urgency to connect again with a company grupal or collective that he invites to that every individual thinks over loudly and with others on the concepts of the current art, which "moves" the artists in his creative processes or the arduous labor developed by the professionals of the art to be able to deal and give content and especially value to the creative ones as motive impellers of the civil societies.

 

The aim of these samples is to take again the reflections on the art since even knowing that it is not an easy task, yes it is highly necessary. The experiences of the different artists must be heard, lived and meditated because they are the essence itself of the positive growth in company.

 

It is for it for what we develop this program SPACE OF THE MIRROR, to reflect and turn reflected, in sensations, imagination, diverse thoughts and creativity.

 

COLLECTIVE VIRTUAL EXHIBITION IN THE NETWORK AGM

Accumulative period of exhibition from September, 2011 to March, 2012

 

Likewise and by means of a virtual procedure of forum - acceso-propuesta, AGM's organization will be the manager of hanging on the network the works received for this project. All the artistic disciplines have content in this section.

 

 

INTERNATIONAL PROGRAM OF VIDEO ART AND VIDEO PERFORMANCE

Accumulative period of exhibition from September, 2011 to March, 2012

 

In this section AGM content will give to projects of video art in which the interaction that takes place between the spectator and the artist is the base of the work as process of royal communication in the art.

Accumulative period of exhibition from November, 2011 to March, 2012

With AGM we want to project the lives of the artists. 

 

Bearing in mind that nowadays the video art already is not an artistic discipline in yes same but one more trend inside the general movement of the art multimedia due to the proliferation of new technologies, the artistic actions that happen to be own movements of a historical and social epoch go forward in all the cases to the conscious suggestions of the citizen as member indisputable and inherent in the art.

 

The video art has evolved from his origins in the sixties up to the current epoch so much in technology, of the analogical one to the foxglove, since in supports of reproduction and display spaces, as well as in incorporation of other artistic disciplines as element more of the own work. But the factor identificativo common in all the stages of the video art seems that it has not changed in excess. This way, independently of the conduit of the content the spectator continues being kept as such still in spite of the fact that the space of exhibition or projection serves in order that the own work wraps him in its entirety.

 

In this respect the contemplative spectator has not evolved in the same line of interpretation, participation that in occasions the artist "requests". Probably be due to lacks of stimuli or maybe to a total and absolute lack in the participation of the visual production. We do not want to obviate the fact that the art multimedia contemplates the interaction between the work and the spectator but not so much this way the royal implication in the work so that it could conceive the same one as alive and evolutionary obra in continuity.

 

In this way AGM will give content to projects of video art in which the interaction that takes place between the spectator and the artist is the base of the work as process of royal communication in the art.
