until 21.04. | #1893ARTatBerlin | From 9th March 2018 the Galerie JEANMICHELBERLIN and SOCIEDAD PARA LA PROMOCIÓN CULTURAL DE CANARIAS EN EUROPE, in cooperation with GOBIERNO DE CANARIAS – the Government of the Canary Islands, present the exhibition “outside the map – fuera del mapa: art from the Canary Islands”.
From 9 March to 14 April 2018, the Gallery JeanMichelBerlin will be hosting a joint exhibition of five female artists from the Canary Islands. Rufina Santana (Lanzarote), Marta von Poroszlay (Tenerife), Ana Beltrá (Gran Canaria), Dácil Granados (Gran Canaria) and Helen Acosta (Gran Canaria) are the artists, who participate in this project of the SOCIEDAD PARA LA PROMOCION CULTURAL DE CANARIAS EN EUROPA, supported by the Canary Islands Government and the Island of Lanzarote.
The opening of the exhibition will take place on 8 March 2018 at 7.30 p. m. at the Galerie JeanMichelBerlin, Kantstrasse 28,10623 Berlin, at the same time as the International Tourism Fair ITB.
The exhibition will be opened by Isaac Castellano, Minister of Tourism and Culture of the Canary Islands, in the presence of the artists. The exhibition is curated by Michael Steiner, who had already held numerous exhibitions with César Manrique in Germany in the 1980s. Damián Peña, from Sociedad CANARIAS EN EUROPA (the Canary Islands’ Society for the Promotion of Foreign Cultural Development), acts as curator on behalf of the Canary Islands.
The finissage will take place on Friday 13 April 2018 at 7.30 pm.
The exhibition provides an insight into the contemporary art of the Canary Islands. Five artists from the Canary Islands introduce themselves. Five artists who convey their very own perspectives, views and insights into the island’s existence, but who, despite their diversity, also have similarities and connecting elements. Life experiences and paths that cross and become alienated again, parallels in development, but which drift apart again due to certain influences.
They are women artists of different ages, but their origins and descents, as well as their living and working environments, represent practically a cross-section of the contemporary art and cultural scene and the social reality of the Canary Islands. The thematic basis of the exhibition is the concept and understanding of ISLAND and ISLAND EXISTENCE, but not only from a purely geographical point of view or perspective.
