MAS Context, 23 / ORDINARY. Fall 14.

MAS Context. 23 Issue, Fall 14.
metalocus, JOSÉ JUAN BARBA.
Mas Context presents ORDINARY, the twenty-third issue of this great quarterly publication. This issue seeks to explore the value of commonness and the everyday environment. It focuses on those elements that go unnoticed or that we take for granted, from buildings and objects to experiences and traditions. We look at the ordinary elements of life that are worth rediscovering and celebrating, as well as look ahead to what will become ordinary in the future.

So to present this issue, and because a few days ago I visited Chicago and Iker, I think it is best leave you with text and images of the first article.

“It’s truly a common man marvels at uncommon things and a wise man marvels at the commonplace.”

Les combats de Niki de Saint Phalle.

Grand Palais [PAR] France. Francia. 17.09. 2014 >02.02.2015
metalocus, INÉS LALUETA.
A visual artist, painter, sculptor and film director, Niki de Saint Phalle was one of the most popular artists of the mid 20th century. Though principally known by the general public for her famous “Nanas”, her work is also characterised by its commitment to politics and feminism, as well as by its radicalism. The Grand Palais has organised the largest exhibition in twenty years devoted to this artist, allowing us to look at her works from a fresh angle.

Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002) was one of the most renowned artists from the mid-twentieth century. Throughout her prolific career, Saint Phalle created a complex body of work in various media which was deeply embedded with socio-political issues. With themes ranging from joyful to profound to intellectual, the paradoxal nature of her work has yet to be...

Auditing the Creative Process, in pictures.

[VIDEO] Fundación Telefónica [MAD] Spain. 29.10 > 1.03.2015
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)

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...
