CREANDO CIUDAD

El artista alicantino nacido en Onil siempre consideró muy importante Alicante en su trayectoria vital y artística y fueron muy numerosas sus relaciones tanto con las instituciones de la ciudad como con las personas.
Participó y colaboró de forma activa en la modernización de la ciudad en los años 70 y fueron muy numerosos los proyectos impulsados por el propio artista en Alicante. En 1976 donó su colección de obras de arte y con la Colección Arte Siglo XX se inauguró el Museo de La Asegurada en 1977, uno de los primeros museos de arte contemporáneo de España.

Sempere es uno de los raros ejemplos de artistas de su época que intervinieron en la estética de la urbe. Tras haber realizado la escultura “Como una estrella” ubicada inicialmente en el portal de Elche, Sempere diseñó el pavimento para una de las vías más importantes de Alicante, la avenida Óscar Esplá en 1978.

La Avenida Óscar Esplá, que está resuelta en forma de boulevard discontinuo, es un magnífico ejemplo de aplicación de los parámetros artísticos aplicados al mobiliario urbano y en todo caso a la escena de la ciudad. Eusebio Sempere, como ideador de una ciudad posible del arte, sugirió un diseño geométrico sencillo pero de gran eficacia formal que vendría a sustituir un diseño clásico que estaba ya proyectado. 

En la memoria técnica se indica que se utilizará un material noble, piezas de 40x40x3 en terrazo vibrazo relieve, formando dibujos a base de rectángulos; en el centro octógonos y entre sí franjas rectangulares con tonalidades azul claro y azul intenso.

DESCRIPCIÓN DE LA ACTIVIDAD
Taller dirigido a alumnos de secundaria y bachillerato.

Café de artista con Luis Nieto en La fontanería crea

Un café de artista es un encuentro informal entre el artista y el público con un café de puchero en medio de una exposición. Un diálogo compartido sobre dudas y curiosidades, una forma de dinamizar la exposición y acercarla al público.

  • Who is it for?: Para todas las personas
  • Timetable: 20h
  • Institution / Organization: La fontanería crea
  • Address: Calle Silió, 6 (soportales)
  • City: Valladolid
  • Country: Spain
  • Email: crea@lafontaneriacrea.es
  • Telephone: 693248349
  • Entry: Gratis
  • Is it necessary to book?: No

Un café de artista es un encuentro con la persona que esté exponiendo en ese momento, una manera de dinamizar la exposición, de acercar el arte al público. Una oportunidad para que el/la artista pueda dialogar/recibir feedback de las personas que contemplan su trabajo. Es compartir un cafelito de puchero o un té en petite comité, una reunión informal para disfrutar del arte y la cultura de la ciudad. Puede que el/la artista nos ofrezca también alguna pequeña actividad en relación con su trabajo o que proyecte imágenes de su proceso creativo o en qué está trabajando en ese momento.
En este caso, el artista es Luis Nieto que inauguró una exposición en la fontanería crea el pasado 16 de marzo.
Luis Nieto lleva más de 30 años exponiendo y experimentado con todo tipo de materiales. Con un estilo minimalista, donde lo orgánico se mezcla con lo geométrico en una impecable limpieza de formas, aparecen imagenes latentes en transición de un color azul oscuro casi negro, donde la naturaleza ha desaparecido por completo dejando paso a un juego de formas, colores y materiales plásticos. Son radiografías y parecen esmaltes, los colores están perfectamente integrados y las formas geométricas y orgánicas se confunden con los huesos del fondo. Una pintura del silencio que nos limpia por un momento del bombardeo de imagenes y palabras.

Developed in collaboration with rail users and garden volunteers this online space will aim to provide an alternative experience to people looking at their phones during the boring commute, who otherwise would not think of gardening or communicating with each other. It will bring attention to the hidden parts of the internet, the radio waves, the rhythms and the physical real world objects the internet needs to function.

Join us from 5pm on Wednesday 21 March for an evening of food, music and the ceremonial unveiling of the totemic wi-fi mast.
