Internacional Project of Cumplicidades Festival

AADK Spain host in the residency program at Centro Negra the creation of the International Project of Cumplicidades Festival 2018. This proposal is based on the idea of generating a greater dialogue among the artists of the Mediterranean area, of creating a space where to confront their authors and individual universes giving place a collaborative process between artists who meet for the first time. The selected artists are:

Gizem Aksu (Turkey)

Myrto Charalampous (Greece)

Matías Daporta (Spain)

Oriana Haddad (Egypt/Italy)

Shira Eviatar (Israel)

During this stay in Blanca they will create, together with the team of AADK Spain, a piece called “Território dos corpos”. They will premiere in 7 different spaces 7 consecutive days in Lisbon.

Open Studios November 2017

This Saturday, November 25th at 8:30pm, AADK Spain opens Centro Negra to the public to show the research processes of the Artists in Residence.



Sebastian and Nefeli present a working draft of a choreographic piece. In it, they reflect over the idea of multiplicity and over the conception of Queer. They display and put into action  a series of movements, gestures, and materials through which they intend to dissect the polyvalence of both terms.

Throughout her residency, Gona detaches from her traditional background in Korean painting. She translates her academic knowledge and her classic materials (Korean ink and paper) to new means and elements, creating pieces were she explores the human morphology from a more experimental perspective.

Paula works around the idea of deconstruction. She intends to determine how much of the initial meaning is still imprinted when something is disassembled. Her process begins exploring different materials, and choosing techniques that reinforce the idea of form and counterform: rubbing, stenciling, engraving, printing. Through them, she creates a catalogue of material samples that she later uses as constructive elements of her installation pieces.

Nicolás Dardano (Buenos Aires) shows a laboratory of sound and light feedback based on the temporal pattern of the bells of the church of Blanca, Giuliana Grippo (Buenos Aires) shows us an installation in which it restores a series of elements that reflect natural events with a strong formal aspect.

29th July 2017 Open Studios

On Saturday, 29th July, AADK organizes the monthly open studio event at the Centro Negra and invites the public to explore the work of the artists in residence.

Teodora Zamfirescu focused on the concept of landscape – in both a physical and a social concept by using drawing as a core medium. Sunny Yanyi Jiang is exploring women’s expressions through materials found or used in local crafts, namely, grass, textile, and clay. Sessa Englund is a visual artist, working mostly with sculpture, at Centro Negra she is searching for the dialectics between the fall of the primary sector and the raise of contemporary cultural production.
Joaquin and Renata research about the vernacular architecture and articulate through a poetic installation the relations of balance and interdependency of the new and old building materials, as well as the ways of production before and after the industrial era.
