2005-02-09 until 2005-03-08
Donostia - San Sebastián, ,
DIVERGENTES 2005 is a project whose intention is to promote the relation between technological innovation and artistic creativity. It consists of 10 international artists on a 2 to 4 week residence (in May 2005) in technology centres or innovating companies in the Basque Country, to create a work of art using the materials, processes, technologies or products developed by the hosting companies. The works will then be exhibited in Zumaia during the months of June, July and August 2005, in the form of an open-air itinerary around the town, starting from the Zuloaga Museum.
The event is open to artists from the visual arts (painting, sculpture, photography, video, multimedia, installation) of any nationality or place of residence, who are starting out on their professional career.
A jury made up by José Lebrero Stals, director of the Andalusian Centre of Contemporary Art, Roger Malina, Director of the CNRS Space Astronomy Laboratory in Marseille (France), and executive editor of the Leonardo publications on Arts and Sciences, Simón Marchán Fiz, Professor of Aesthetics at the National Open University (UNED) and Xabier Sáenz de Gorbea, lecturer in History of Art at the University of the Basque Country (UPV), will select the 10 artists who will participate in the event.
