A platform for emerging and mid-career Spanish artists

Oral Memories: Interviews with emerging and mid-career artists

The Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport of Spain is pleased to announce the launch of Oral Memories: a Web platform for the promotion and launching of emerging and mid-career Spanish artists, nationally and internationally.

The project, conceived as a tool for institutions, curators, collectors and researchers, includes interviews, in video format and eight-minute bilingual editions, where each of the artists exposes their aesthetic and conceptual approaches.

Each artist has in Oral Memories his own space, which hosts both the interviews, with images of their outstanding projects, and additional information about the artist (website, curriculum and contact) thus forming a complete profile.

The online platform holding all this audiovisual material, brings now a first selection of artists that will be extended annually with more new names, chosen through the same two objective criteria: the critics’ support, and the relevance of the exhibition projects undertaken in recent years, nationally and internationally.

In 2013 we’ll find in Oral Memories interviews and works of the following Spanish artists:
Ignasi Aballí Sanmartí, Pilar Albarracín, Eugenio Ampudia, José Manuel Ballester, Antonio Ballester Moreno, David Bestué, Cabello / Carceller, Óscar Carrasco, Jacobo Castellano, Carlos Congost, Daniel García Andujar, Dora García, Chus García Fraile, Dionisio González, Abraham Lacalle, Cristina Lucas, Mateo Maté, Rosell Meseguer, Javier Pérez, Concha Pérez, Bernardí Roig, Pedro G. Romero, Fernando Sánchez Castillo, Montserrat Soto, Eulalia Valldosera, Manuel Vilariño, and Marc Vives.

As the project remains open, progressing with new artist incorporations, it will give a closer view and approach to contemporary Spanish creation.

Oral Memories is a project of the Promotion of the Fine Arts Unity (Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport of Spain); has been directed by Begoña Torres and Antonio Sánchez, coordinated by Guillermo González, Mariflor Sanz, Arantxa Chamorro and Diana Prieto; the interviews have been made by May Gañán, and the realization has been carried out by Medya Audiovisual.
