Please join us on Sunday, 21st November, for a special screening and conversation with artist Greta Alfaro.
We will present a selection of her recent projects, among them ‘I Will Not Hesitate to React Spiritually’ (2019), ‘Comedias a honor y gloria’, (2016), ‘El cataclismo nos alcanzará impávidos’ (2015), and ‘In Ictu Oculi’, (2009)
Alfaro will discuss her ideas of the Baroque and the use of unexpected juxtaposition to bring the mythical, historic, and ritualistic to the contemporary to reflect on current times and western identity.

Her solo exhibitions include Decimocuarta estación (2019) at the Fundación BBVA, Madrid; In Ictu Oculi (2019) at the Flint Institute of Arts, Michigan; El cataclismo nos alcanzará impávidos (2015) and European DarkRoom (2014) at Galería Rosa Santos, Valencia; Still Life with Books (2014) at Artium, Vitoria; In Praise of the Beast (2013) at Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art, Japan; and Invención (2012) at Ex Teresa, Mexico City. Among her other solo site-specific projects are I Will Not Hesitate to React Spiritually (2019), with Roaming Room, and A Very Crafty and Tricky Contrivance (2012), with Genesis Foundation, both in London, and Comedias a honor y gloria (2016) in La Gallera, Valencia.
