Since then, Art Omi (previously known as Ledig House) has hosted at least one Catalan author per year. Some of the Catalan writers in residence are Gemma Gorga, Francesc Serés, Marc Pastor, Anna Ballbona, Albert Forns, Sebastià Alzamora, Marina Espasa, Anna Aguilar-Amat, Mònica Batet, Marta Carnicero and Sebastià Portell and Martí Domínguez in 2018, and Núria Perpinyà in Spring 2019.

Selected out of 22 candidates, Irene Solà will travel to Art Omi in October.

<![CDATA["Catalonia In Venice_To Lose Your Head (Idols)": Collateral Event of the 58th International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia]]>Arts Visuals. Venice, Italy, 24/11/2019
For the 6th time, the Institut Ramon Llull presents a Collateral Event for the Biennale Arte. Pedro Azara curates the exhibition Catalonia in Venice_To Lose Your Head (Idols). The multi-authored exhibition explores the theory of art reception and documents the complex life of public statues in our time. In a world of images, where iconoclasm, iconodulia and the transformation of aesthetic and are ways for reality and power to relate to each other, the exhibition questions the fetishism of images as living entities and encourages conversations as a way to foster human happiness, awareness and freedom.

“I don’t want you to confine my thinking to facts and agreed formulas; I do want, like birds, the liberated wings to fly at any time, now to the right, now to the left, through the space full of infinite and invisible routes; I do not want extraneous nuisances, harmful limits that impose me a path beforehand.

After his first public appearance in 1980, Ignasi Terraza (born in 1962) has played an important role in the Barcelona Jazz scene.

Every week, artist Oriol Vilanova (1980) scours flea markets for second-hand postcards. He organizes his collection, which contains more than 75,000 postcards, into works of art that address how images shape our knowledge of the world. More than 4,500 museum postcards of dramatically different objects make up Anything, Everything, the centerpiece of Vilanova’s presentation at the Albright-Knox, which is the first museum exhibition of his work in the United States. By organizing the postcards according to their colored backgrounds, the artist proposes that the circulation of objects through reproductions can “color,” or influence, their meanings.
