In Construction. Recipes from Scarcity, Ubiquity and Excess - we make money not art
"No proper building. Not even an architecture project that would give a hint of what its future headquarters would be like. That didn't prevent El Bòlit, a brand new Contemp Art Center, from opening its borrowed doors a few weeks ago in Girona...The Bòlit was a game popular among children in Catalonia until the middle of the XXth century. "It's a metaphor for a dynamic center, one that is constantly moving and is pushed forward by people"... opening exhibition...proves that, if the center is still waiting for a proper building, it certainly doesn't lack a strong personality, a dauntless attitude and a very promising exhibition programme...In Construction. Recipes from Scarcity, Ubiquity and Excess...Beyond construction of building, creation of a contemp art centre involves first & foremost construction of a discourse, relationships & dialogue...why first exhibition at new centre focuses on processes that explore new methodologies to articulate narratives w/ context as starting point."
