“Arm” by the artist Carlos Sáez from the Espai Tactel gallery has been the winner of the Premi Col-lecció Cañada Blanch 2020.
Theme of the exhibition
Under the title “The Other Condition”, the exhibition proposal resulting from the Premi Col-lecció Cañada Blanch 2020, reflects on the notion of space. The exhibition projects a continuity of the previous edition. While in 2019, the temporality and timelessness of art was explored in depth, with artists reflecting on the nature of time, in the current edition it is space that takes centre stage. Both – space and time – are positioned as fundamental elements in artistic creation.
The jury for this edition was made up of José María Lasalle, former Secretary of State for Culture; Alba Braza, exhibition curator; Luisa Espino, art critic; Juan Viña, president of the Cañada Blanch Foundation; Paula Sánchez, director of the Cañada Blanch Foundation; Manel Costa, member of the Board of Trustees of the Cañada Blanch Foundation, and Norberto Piqueras, head of exhibitions at the La Nau Cultural Centre of the University of Valencia.
