Extensions-Anchors Phase II. 06.07.07-30.09.07

Concept: The Art Centre “expands” outside its headquarters in Gijón in search of the complicity of artists from Asturias. This exhibition, to be developed in two phases, will create unexpected art circuits through the region, in spaces outside traditional conurbations. With this “anchorage,” LABoral evidences its wish for presence, integration and free flowing dialogue with society.

Curator: Francisco Crabiffosse
Artists: Paco Cao, Soledad Córdoba, Carlos Coronas, Chechu y Juan Fernández Álava, Dionisio González, Fernando Redruello y Aurora Suárez

LABoral Centre for Art and Creative Industries is a space for artistic exchange. It is set up with the purpose of establishing an effective alliance between art, design, culture, industry and economic progress and the goal of becoming a space for interaction and dialogue between art, new technologies and industrial creation. It throws a special spotlight on production, creation and research into art concepts still being defined.
