Since its founding in 1992, Art Omi Writers (previously known as Ledig House) has hosted hundreds of authors and translators, representing more than fifty countries. The colony's strong international emphasis reflects the spirit of cultural exchange that is part of Ledig's enduring legacy. The collaboration between Institut Ramon Llull and Art Omi started back in 2010. Since then, Art Omi has hosted at least one Catalan author per year. Some of the Catalan writers in residence have been Gemma Gorga, Francesc Serés, Marc Pastor, Anna Ballbona, Albert Forns, Sebastià Alzamora, Marina Espasa, Anna Aguilar-Amat, Mònica Batet, Marta Carnicero, Sebastià Portell, Martí Domínguez and, last year, Núria Perpinyà and Irene Solà.

Selected out of 22 candidates, Monika Zgustova will travel to Art Omi in the Fall 2020, and Max Besora in 2021.

For Manel Lledós, painting is a rapprochement between the tangible and the abstract, the permanent and the transformative, the certain and the unexpected. His painting develops slowly towards an organic geometry which reflects on place, time and belonging.

<![CDATA[Dr. Javier Krauel of the University of Colorado Boulder, the Mercè Rodoreda Chair Visiting Professor at the Graduate Center - CUNY]]>Cultura. New York, 24/04/2020
The seminar taught by Dr. Krauel will investigate how consensus and conflict have played out in Catalan culture from 1898 to 1978. By focusing on momentous events in twentieth-century Catalan history, students will explore how cultural works (essay, narrative, poetry, and photography) respond to, and engage, social antagonisms. By paying special attention to social categorizations of class and nation, they will discuss works that will help them understand how some of Catalonia’s most prominent social theorists, novelists, poets, and visual artists responded to the crises and changes undergone by their societies (possible events include the Cuban-Spanish-American War of 1898, the deathly confrontations between the Spanish army and the Barcelona working class during the Tragic Week in 1909, the Spanish Civil War of 1936-1939, and the Spanish Transition to democracy in 1975-1978).

When Salvador Dalí & Luis Buñuel’s film Un chien Andalou premiered in the City of Light, Paris was an avant-garde hothouse rife with artistic conflict and friendly rivalry. Midnight in Paris: Surrealism at the Crossroads, 1929 immerses visitors in this particularly rich and vital creative era by examining the works, friendships and clashes of Jean Arp, André Breton, Luis Buñuel, Alexander Calder, Giorgio de Chirico, Salvador Dalí, Max Ernst, Alberto Giacometti, René Magritte, Joan Miró, Francis Picabia, Man Ray, Yves Tanguy and others.

<![CDATA[Translator Cyrus Cassells's distinguished with the Souerette Diehl Fraser Award for a book of poems of Francesc Parcerisas ]]>Literatura. Texas, 27/03/2020
Cyrus Cassells’ vibrant translations grow on the page as though the essence of Francesc Parcerisas’ work has also moved forward in a Janus-like fashion. These translations are not simply the same poems in a different language; Cassells has crafted new poetry. The gentle and delicate rhythms of Parcerisas have been contracted into shorter lines that explore sharper cadences whilst Cassells carefully maintains a sensitive continuity in the opening feet. This is poetry for the ear first and the page second, Cassells has stronger consonants at his disposal, a resource that he skilfully exploits. The ultimate product of his labours is a short collection of poetry that reads and feels like a work of English Literature, a sensation that is perhaps the highest compliment one may bestow upon a Literary Translation.

Cyrus Cassells: Winner of The Soeurette Diehl Fraser Award for Best Translation of a Book, for Still Life with Children: Selected Poems of Francesc Parcerisas.

The unstoppable advances in technology affect the automation of processes of industrial production and the global economy in many ways. The final goal of artificial intelligence (AI)—that a machine can have a type of general intelligence similar to a human’s—is one of the most ambitious ever proposed by science. In terms of difficulty, it is comparable to other great scientific goals, such as explaining the origin of life or the Universe, or discovering the structure of matter.
