Whose Language Does the Produce Speak? Conversations Between La Boqueria and the Essex Street Market

The project Whose Language Does the Produce Speak? Conversations Between La Boqueria and the Essex Street Market and its resulting exhibition in New York ask the participating artists to reflect on their creative practices and respond to this in connection to new food trends, waste and recycling, conspicuous consumption, urban development, and tourism and “touristification.” Similarly, it asks participating artists to use performance, film, photography, printmaking, and writing, as active platforms that can facilitate collaborations amongst them, vendors, and patrons; and even intimate rendezvous between the artists and the markets themselves. 

This project is presented by Artists Alliance Inc., FoodCultura, and Institut Ramon Llull, in collaboration with Center for Book Arts

During said year she’s been dropping some of the dopest songs in the Hispanic urban scene worldwide, like ‘Indapanden’, accumulating more than 2 million views on YouTube. Her first mixtape ‘Slow Wine’ followed, earning her a place as the first modern dancehall artist in Spain before even turning 20 years old and featuring massive hits like ‘Fiebre’ and ‘Mercadona’.
