Earth: A Retrospective
Curated by El Ultimo Grito (Rosario Hurtado & Roberto Feo)
From 07.07.2022 to 04.06.2023
Bombas Gens Centre d’Art
Valencia, Spain

Within the framework of World Design Capital Valencia 2022, Bombas Gens Centre d’Art – under the artistic direction of Sandra Guimarães— has invited El Ultimo Grito to create an exhibition proposal based on the Per Amor a l’Art Collection. In this exhibition, design operates as a conceptual and material narrative and curatorial device, sketching a sort of language of the interlude, engaging in a dialogue that opens a speculative approach into the nature of this collection and its individual works.

For El Ultimo Grito, design is an in-betweener. Design is an action, a verb, and not a noun or object. Although these are commonly mistaken as design, they are just by-products of these processes. Design lives in those in-between spaces that exist between humans and their surrounding worlds, both real or fictional, conceptually and materially connecting two distinct points in time and space.

"Earth: A Retrospective" showcases the Per Amor a l’Art Collection as a "creative geography" –an editing concept developed by Lev Kuleshov, designed to collide shots from different locations to generate a seamless new landscape where the narrative elapses. With this project, El Ultimo Grito is looking back at Earth from an undetermined point in a future space-time. A point in which our memory of Earth is broken and our only link back to it is a collection of images where signified and signifier become blurred; where our gaze romanticises them into narratives seeking to find meaning beyond their historicity.

Generated in the present by trying to reimagine a past from an unknown future, "Earth: A Retrospective" features works of the Per Amor a l’Art Collection and El Ultimo Grito, including artists such as Nobuyoshi Araki, Bernd and Hilla Becher, EUG-Arno Mathies, Lewis Baltz, Bleda y Rosa, Iñaki Bonillas, Pedro Cabrita Reis, Joan Cardells, Imogen Cunningham, Tacita Dean, Koji Enokura, Elger Esser, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Inma Femenía, Lee Friedlander, Carlos Garaicoa, Paul Graham, Noritoshi Hirakawa, Jonas Mekas, Jason Mena, Mathieu Mercier, Matt Mullican, Nicolás Ortigosa, Tod Papageorge, Thomas Ruff, Armando Salas Portugal, and Aaron Siskind, among others.

El Ultimo Grito is an artistic duo formed by Rosario Hurtado and Roberto Feo. Since 1997, they have produced work that responds to an ongoing investigation into the nature and representation of systems. This work is both the means to analyze and advance their ideas in the subject and the object of the investigation itself. The results they produce are presented in various contexts and take different forms that have ranged from installations, objects, films, performances and publications to curatorial, editorial, and academic projects.

The work of El Ultimo Grito is present in the Per Amor a l’Art Collection. Recently, they have participated in the exhibition "Hiperespacios" (2021) at Bombas Gens Centre d’Art with an intervention entitled “(Mise-en-scène)”, which transformed the gallery hall into a landscape wrapped in smoke and flames.

In 2012 they were awarded the prestigious London Gold Design Medal acknowledging their contribution to design in the UK and more recently the 2019 Madrid Design Festival Award.

Lapdogs of War
Curated by Raul Zamudio
March 26 - April 24, 2022
The Empty Circle
Brooklyn, NY

Proyectos Raul Zamudio and Empty Circle present LAPDOGS OF WAR, an international, mixed-media exhibition responding to the war in Ukraine, but also addressing wars historically and culturally and through the myriad contexts they are rooted and emanate. In times of social duress and trauma, art becomes more like the famous aphorism by Picasso regarding Guernica that he painted as a response to the Nazi bombing of the eponymous town:

"Painting is not made to decorate apartments. It's an offensive and defensive weapon against the enemy."

Artists: Sociedad Aaron Burr/Jim Costanzo; Alban Camacho; Andrew Demirjian; Andrew Ellis Johnson; Avelino Sala; Behnaz Monfared; Claudia Baez; Dani Ploeger; Despo Magoni; Dominik Podsiadly; Dennis Sears; Eduardo Cervantes; Elin O'Hara Slavick; Enrique Ježik; Fabio Herrera; Ferran Martin; Florencia Kettner; Janet Friedman; Río Jaroslaw; Jason Mena; Jeanette Doyle; Transmisión electoral de Johan; Joseph DeLappe; Julia Justo; Julia San Martin; Mario Maffioli; Matthew Askey; Mehran Tizkar; Miguel Rodríguez Sepúlveda; Miroslaw Chudy; Noël Hennelly; Renzo Ortega; S&P Stanikas; Shahram Entekhabi; Tervaniemi Saree; Sherry Kerlin; Susanne Slavick; Terry Berkowitz; Tommie Soro

The Empty Circle is a space for creation and destruction, the melting drowsiness on the verge of sleep. We encourage emerging artists to explore new ways of working and presenting their work outside traditional exhibition practices. Our staff are not only visual art curators and artists, but also writers, directors, musicians, and dancers. We strive to not only present these different mediums of art but also foster a dialogue between different disciplines, cultures, and generations of artists. Based in Brooklyn, New York, The Empty Circle aims to give local and international emerging artists their first public exhibition opportunity in New York City.


Nominated for The AICAD Post-Graduate Teaching Fellowship

The AICAD Post-Graduate Teaching Fellowship program seeks to provide professional practice opportunities to high-achieving alumni who have recently graduated from AICAD member schools, while also increasing the racial and ethnic diversity of faculty at these institutions. AICAD institutions aspire to create a climate that recognizes and values diversity as central to excellence in art and design education.

AICAD Fellowships include structured and unstructured mentoring and professional development opportunities along with direct teaching experience, health benefits, and other monetary supports.

AICAD – the Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design – is a non-profit consortium of 39 leading art schools in the US and Canada. It was founded in 1991 by a group of 25 presidents who felt a need for the similarly structured art schools to come together so as to mutually develop their schools and programs. Our mission is to help strengthen the member colleges individually and collectively, and to inform the public about these colleges and the value of studying art and design.
