La ciudad después de los aplausos

City after the Applause
Curated by Manuel Segade

At this second exhibition staged by the recently established Pavillon Vendôme- Centre d'Art Contemporain de la Ville de Clichy since it was opened in September 2013, five Spanish artists – Carme Nogueira, Julia Montilla, Juan Pérez Agirregoikoa, Francesc Ruiz and Oriol Vilanova – have been invited to produce new works in the context of Clichy. The idea is to produce five tales of the south that come from a close but different tradition based on the conviction of being able to transform artistic production and the political conception of the work through the representation and construction of discourses rooted in the contexts that lead, almost as a consequence, to its very production.

By analysing the city using the investigative methodologies of contemporary artists, it will be possible to build a story with five voices showing Clichy as an area of transit, an open meaning, an articulation of tales of the city. The intention is to provide an alien gaze at a distance from the show, long after the applause, which will serve above all as an aid to reflection, pleasure or a certain emotional intensity: an individual but shared experience, a way of building a more intense and participatory community beyond the conventional spectator.
