FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

{CTS} creative thriftshop is proud to annouce Victoria Campillo's solo show entitled Baby opening in Barcelona at the prestigous Can Manye art space in Barcelona.

Are artists made or born? This question is the starting point of the exhibition. Can Manye invites Barcelona artist Victoria Campillo to analyze art from the earliest artistic experience... that of childhood.

Campillo encourages us to reflect on the origins of art from the relationship established between the children's drawings and artwork of renowned artists. Without rules or constraints, considering that childhood is the time to create more freely. The artist based this work on a reflection on contemporary art, its pedagogy, the parallels with other languages and the relationship between high and low culture. Through drawings, photographs, paintings, installations and materials analysis of the role of artists and creators, originality and value of different artistic contributions. The exhibition opens on 8 June at 20.30 can be visited until June 24. On June 17, at 12, has scheduled a guided tour by the artist.

Victoria Campillo
is a kind of mad scientist, working in a dizzying almost schizophrenic pace creating series of photographs that number in the hundreds. The themes are limitless, countless, immune to repeating yet are based wholly on the idea of repetition. Her work deals greatly with the unconscious science of visual recognition. Establishing the relationship between the eye and the mind ability and its gravity to process categorization and identification on a primordial level.

Can Manyé Espai d'art i creación
is center for art and creation based in a converted old textile factory in the historic center of Alella. Known as a public cultural facility dedicated to the creation, production and dissemination of art, culture and contemporary thought. It aims to develop programs of research, production and exhibition of contemporary art projects carried out by professional artists locally, nationally and internationally, both formal and conceptual and contribute to the development and dissemination of culture in the municipality .
