One of the most exciting classes or activities in any art school is to receive visits from professional, practicing artists who talk about their art work. This month at Metàfora’s Studio Arts Programs we are getting to know more about the art work and experience of three rather different Barcelona based artists: Bernat Daviu, Pep Vidal and Mercedes Magrané.
Different art disciplines
By bringing them into our art community, we cover different disciplines as different as installation, painting, art & science, video, performance, etc.
Our students saw them first
It was our own art students who requested to meet all of the artists selected as visiting artists at Metàfora this month. And we are super happy to make their wish come true! Bringing them to Metàfora gives a good idea of just how integrated our art school is with Barcelona’s art scene: The work of these three artists was discovered by our students at galleries, museums or art fairs around our art-loving city. By presenting our students to practicing, professional artists – or visiting them in their studios – we help them understand their practice and discourse, but also the different steps they have taken in their art careers to get where they are now.
