metalocus, JOSÉ JUAN BARBA.
Yesterday we presented this exhibition that has now opened its doors to the public. An exhibition you not to be missed, where a superb cook does not speak of cuisine, or yes, and talk focuses on creativity. A highly recommended exposure for students, teachers and the general public who is interested in learning more about creativity. Do you think that creativity can be taught, can be learned, it can grow ...? These are some of the questions the exhibition raises and tries to answer with Ferran Adrià.

We report today the first images about the exhibition and Ferran Adrià (images, below)

What is needed to create?...

metalocus, JOSÉ JUAN BARBA.
The Exhibition called ‘Auditing the Creative Process’ will open its doors on 29 October to 1 March. Fundación Telefónica presents Ferran Adrià's first exhibition on creativity. Almost 1000 m² dedicated to reflecting on the creative process and the interpretation of the elBulli model, and which seek to surprise the visitor and invite them to create and define their own creative profile. For 25 years, from 1987 to 2011, the team at the restaurant in Cala Montjoi worked relentlessly with the aim of making the language of cuisine evolve and find its own essence, always seeking to be as disruptive as possible.

Be warned not to expect an exhibition on cooking.

 

Creative DNA, D-coding, disruptive methodologies, creative auditing, etc. These are the terms that are now on the lips of Ferran and his team, with this new project that stands as the first exhibition ever on creative processes. The key...

For the ninth consecutive year, associated with the Domaine national du Louvre and the Tuileries, FIAC present, in the heart of the Tuileries Garden, a programme of outdoor artworks.

Studio Olafur Eliasson [Copenhagen] Denmark.
metalocus, JOSÉ JUAN BARBA.
One hundred tonnes of inland ice from Greenland melt on Copenhagen City Hall Square. With Ice Watch, Olafur Eliasson and Minik Rosing direct attention to the publication of the IPCC’s 5th Assessment Report on the Climate.

On Sunday, twelve large blocks of ice, collected from a fjord outside Nuuk, Greenland, will arrive at Copenhagen’s City Hall Square. The ice, displayed in clock formation, is a physical wake-up call: Climate change is a fact. Temperatures are rising. The ice is melting. Sea levels are rising. With Ice Watch, artist Olafur Eliasson and geologist Minik Rosing have made a visually striking, haptic contribution to the climate debate. Their shared message:

Situation Room by Jana Winderen and Marc Fornes / THEVERYMANY.

StoreFront [NYC] USA. 4.10 > 21.11.2014
metalocus, INÉS LALUETA.
Reflecting on the contemporary conditions emerging between the digital and the physical realms, the collaboration of Winderen and Fornes collapses sound, light and form in an object with intrinsic sensorial behaviors, inviting visitors to question the properties of matter and the built environment surrounding us. The installation is a vibrating sound experiment that aims to transform the architecture into animated sensible form.

Conceived as a sound object that absorbs and contrasts the site specificity of the Storefront Gallery with abstract, spatial, formal and acoustic variations and compositions, Situation NY raises questions about context, sensorial readings, estrangement and the uncanny tangentially resonating with contemporary debates around the ontology of objects.

A Model for a City, Post-Soviet Landscape, by Petr Antonov.

[Moscow] Russia.
metalocus, INÉS LALUETA.
In "A Model for a City" photographer Petr Antonov explores the aesthetics of contemporary Russian cityscape, taking Moscow as the perfect example of any post-Soviet urban environment.

Historically, the archetype city and the model for any other city within Russian cultural space, Moscow also acts as the place where changes in the cultural landscape become most pronounced and are visible with special acuteness. Photographs are accompanied with textual descriptions questioning whether the image might be equal to the sum of its elements, as well as our readiness to filter out when looking whatever is perceived as familiar. In 2014 Petr Antonov...

FRANK GEHRY at POMPIDOU.

metalocus, ÁNGEL BLANCO
Architecture, Exhibitions
The "Frank Gehry" monographic exhibition presented at the Centre Pompidou retraces the stages marking a globally acclaimed body of architectural work. If the name of Frank Gehry embodies the very image of contemporary architecture, it is because his work has been questioning the identity and standards of the architectural form since the Sixties.

The exhibition is intended to shed light on this career. It is divided into six sections, following the development of his work through some 60 projects, with a large number of original drawings and research models.

From the first period of his work (when the architect was close to artists on the Californian...
