As in previous years, Metàfora once again took part in LOOP Barcelona – an extraordinary event for any enthusiast of art and the moving image. The expansive program encompassed everything from exhibitions and talks to installations and workshops, and both Metàfora staff and students participated in several events.
One of our in-house tutors, Adrian Melis, was represented at the main LOOP Fair by his gallery, ADN Galería , with the work Engagement Rate Formula, and two advanced level students, Karen Torres and Charlotte Nordgren-Sewell, presented their video-works, Erika I and Melting Gold within the LOOP City Screen program. Besides an exhibition and a screening, the evening also included a debate where curious visitors could ask questions and involve in an inspiring talk with the artists around the many aspects of each of their artworks.
Showing works to fellow art students is one thing, presenting it to the public is another, and events like this are some of the best practices in engaging in the local art scene and tell about your work to people who are not already familiar with the discourse and aesthetics of your art production.
