"The Fiesta of Collage" - Techhub London - 6 September - 6 October, 2018
Luna13 Galeria presents the exhbition “The Fiesta of Collage” that shows a fantastic colection of collages by 4 Spanish collage artists
The exhibiting artists: Arianne Cristiel,Carmen Reig, Veronica Gran y Xan Xerantes come from vary different places of the Spanish geography: Orense, Valencia, Alicante and Coruña and they all work the analogue collage, done without of the intervention of any computer technology, and based on cutouts from magazines or very old books mixed in with more recent objects and papers.
These collages are sometimes created following a predefined idea, other times they are the result of a random process. Repeating patterns like plants, animals, fashion, nature, landscapes, symbols help the artists explore themes like the relationships between people, their surroundings and their emotions, self-exploration and the expression of what one IS. Life background, inspirations and the subconscious influence the work of these artists who, by giving back a new life to the “forgotten” magazines, aim to create a connection between the viewer and the art on an emotional and personal level.
The exhibition will be opened to the public until the 4th of October. Entrance is free but tickets must be booked through eventbrite.

In this show we present a total of 54 amazing abstract drawings, 49 belong to 9 different series and there are 5 individual drawings. The drawings in the series are all of the same size, made at different times, with different techniques and materials that form a large collage of drawings.According to Uriel Segui "This is a didactic exhibition, composed with drawings made with different drawing processes and with different starting points. They have been combined into a large collage of drawings from different backgrounds which have started to communicate with other drawings and other processes. In this way they have become part of a work that always exceeds any of the individual drawings that compose it".
The opening will take place at the headquarters of Spanish House London in Clapham North Art Center (26-32, Voltaire road) on Friday 16th of March from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. There will be games, a raffle and a welcome drink. Come along, it will be fun!

Los Artistas del Barrio aims to support and promote contemporary creators of Madrid. The project wants to transcend institutionalised boundaries of art, normally confined to museums and galleries, and return it to its original source, the places where it is conveived and created.
This event, where artists and art centres open their house to the public has been organized in the boroughs of La Latina and Lavapiés since 2004 and this is the first year the event took place in the boroughs of Chueca and Malasaña. It was a great success where large number of visitors could see the works of more than 200 artists gathered in 70 spaces.
The philosophy of this event is very similar to that of Luna13 Galleria and so we wanted to be present and participated with 10 of our artists. We also organised workshops throughout the weekend where we had a lot of fun and the public put their creativity to the test.
Here we leave you a link to the pages of the catalogue featuring our artists. Click on the photograph to see them.
