From its inception, the Esteban Vicente Contemporary Art Museum has always carried out an important educational work alongside its exhibiting activities. This year we propose a new approach by introducing, as an innovation, an Educational Programme to be led and taught by an artist whose main contribution would be to focus on the understanding and appreciation of artistic creation and contemporary art. In this regard, the participants will benefit from the support and perspective of a visual arts professional to incentivise creative behaviour and impart knowledge from the perspective of an aesthetic experience.
Given his association with the work of Esteban Vicente, and the fact that he has dedicated his life to plastic experimentation, we have requested the cooperation of the artist Iván Montero, for this purpose, and with him we have organised an exceptional educational project entitled Feeling the Invisible. Its purpose is to start a regular programme of cooperation between artists and the museum, thus achieving a greater rapprochement with society, our city and the art world.
This project, implemented with the cooperation and patronage of Ambient Air, aims to be an original experience for training, artistic experimentation and knowledge, and enjoyment of the arts, based on the figure and work of Esteban Vicente, as well as on temporary exhibitions organised by the institution.
This is a globalising and creative project intended for all those who wish to learn, observe and discover the different manifestations of the visual arts. In addition, they will be invited to experience the metaphorical relationship between art and the different senses: a visual stimulus, a sound, the recollection of a scent and the evoking power of the olfactory memory, as inspirational engines and creators of sensations. To capture these experiences, converted into feelings, in a work of art.
The visit-workshop will broach exhibited works, from their historical analysis, artistic and formal references, and provide a direct and objective viewpoint on their execution. It will also place us before the aesthetic experience of the artists and their environment, their concerns; that workshop life that only an artist really knows, its secrets; an input that will contribute to the discovery, all together, of the real magic of art.
