CALL XVII. Group show
For the seventeenth edition of the Call (International Call for young artists) we have selected a total of 18 proposals from among the more than 500 proposals submitted. The selection of the participating artists has been at the hand of the gallery director Olga Adelantado.
For Adelantado, this year’s presentation of proposals has been similar to last year’s, as she explains: “We have noticed that the quality of the proposals has increased significantly, which indicates a greater professionalization of the artists, something that has been happening steadily in the latest editions. “She adds: “Also noteworthy is the quality of the proposals from Spanish artists with respect to previous years, a total of 13 artists, including 7 from Valencia. The Spanish are followed by the Peruvian presence with two artists, and completing the selection with one French, one German and one Swiss artist. In all, a total of 20 artists and 18 proposals”.
The artistic careers of the participants are very diverse and plural, and although their age only range from 24 and 36 years, many of them, despite being in the first stage of their career, have to their credit an outstanding record with presence in galleries and institutions, symptom of their thoroughness and professional involvement. Some have already received awards and major endorsements. The means by which they express themselves in their work are as broad and diverse as their background. They range from photography, drawing, painting, intervention, collage and installation to sculptural objects.
