Add to calendar 07/07/22 19:00 06/04/23 Europe/Madrid EXHIBITION. “El Último Grito. Earth, a retrospective” Within the framework of World Design Capital Valencia 2022, Bombas Gens Centre d'Art -under the artistic direction of Sandra Guimarães- has invited El Ultimo Grito to create an exhibition proposal based on the Per Amor a l'Art Collection. In this exhibition, design operates as a conceptual and material narrative, as well as a curatorial device, outlining a kind of language of interlude and engaging in a dialogue that opens a speculative approach to the nature of this collection and its individual works. For El Ultimo Grito, design is an intermediary. Design is an action, a verb, and not a noun or an object. Although these are often confused with design, they are only derivatives of these processes. Design lives in those in-between spaces that exist between human beings and their surrounding worlds, both real and fictional, conceptually and materially connecting two distinct points in time and space.

“Earth: A Retrospective” shows the Per Amor a l’Art Collection as a “creative geography”-an editing concept developed by Lev Kuleshov, designed to collide shots from different locations to generate a new seamless landscape where the narrative transpires. With this project, El Ultimo Grito looks at the Earth from an indeterminate point in a future space-time. A point where our memory of the Earth is broken and our only link to it is a collection of images where meaning and signifier are blurred; where our gaze romanticizes them in narratives that seek to find meaning beyond their historicity.
Generated in the present trying to reimagine a past from an unknown future, “Earth: A Retrospective” features works from the Per Amor a l’Art Collection and El Ultimo Grito, including artists such as Nobuyosi Araki, Bernd and Hilla Becher_EUG-Arno Mathies, Bleda y Rosa, Iñaki Bonillas, Pedro Cabrita Reis, Joan Cardells, Oscar Carrasco, Imogen Cunningham, Tacita Dean, Koji Enokura, Elger Esser, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Inma Femenía, Lee Friedlander, Carlos Garaicoa, Paul Graham, Jonas Mekas, Mathieu Mercier, Matt Mullican, Nicolás Ortigosa, Thomas Ruff, Armando Salas Portugal and Aaron Siskind, among others.
