15 July - 8 August 2014


Summer has arrived and is accompanied by a new edition of Talleres de lecer at the CGAC. Using experimentation techniques, this year´s activities offer a close look at the different expressions of contemporary art. Each proposal is designed to offer participants in-depth knowledge of contemporary creation through fun and hands-on experiences. Knowing the language and the wide variety of tools that can be used in contemporary art is fundamental to gain a wider view of the world we live in and learn new ways of expression.

You can bring along a filming device (mobile phone, digital camera...) or a file with previously recorded material. If you want to discover how the relationship between sound and images works, you can visit the CGAC´s exhibit on Diego Santomé and learn first-hand from the artist about his latest production.
