24/7 VALENCIA: COULD YOU TELL US MORE ABOUT THIS EXHIBITION?
IVAM: “This project for IVAM by the artist Azucena Vieites (1967, Hernani) delves into the languages linked to a subcultural aesthetic and its forms of production, between low-fi (low-fidelity) artistic practice and the idea of editing. Vieites proposes a reflection on contemporary visual culture from resources such as multiplicity, fragments, appropriation or concealment and she questions the logic of classical narrative.
As its starting point, this project takes the realization of a workshop about a feminist fanzine with students from the city of Valencia. Part of its development focuses on “remaking” a previous work by the artist called ‘Break Out of Your Shell’ (2009).
The proposal will be installed in different transit spaces of the museum and will directly question the subjects that inhabit it.
Azucena Vieites (Hernani, 1967)
Her work makes approaches to contemporary visual culture through graphic resources such as drawing or silkscreen printing. In 1994 she co-founded Erreakzioa-Reacción, an initiative to develop the project between art and feminism. Among her latest solo exhibitions are: Playing Across Papers, Sala Alcalá 31 (Madrid, 2020-2021); Hey Baby!, Box 27, Casal Solleric (Palma, 2018); Woollen Body, Carreras Múgica gallery (Bilbao, 2015); Tableau Vivant, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (Madrid, 2013), or Fundido encadenado-Break You Nice, MUSAC (León, 2012). She has been part of the 11th edition of the Berlin Biennale 2020. Her work can be found in the collections of Museo Reina Sofía, CA2M, Artium, CGAC, Basque Government, MUSAC, Juntas Generales de Gipuzkoa and Fundación Botín.”
