Exhibition Viva Arte Viva
Artistic director and curator Christine Macel
May 13th / November 26th

June 23rd – Tavola Aperta
Conference Miralda, Rabascall, Selz
Artist’s Practice

Antoni Miralda, Joan Rabascall, Dorothée Selz, Jaume Xifra Film Ceremonials, 1972 directed by Benet Rossell, music by Eliane Radigue (archives rituals and performances 1969–1972).
From 1969 to 1976 the four artists worked together, organizing events and performances called Ceremonials. The guests were asked to wear colored clothing, to share colored meal, music or silence. By transforming ordinary moments of life into colored rituals, the spectators became actors of artistic events. The proposal of Christine Macel is to rediscover these experiments, as utopia of the 70s.
