THREADS, NEEDLES AND FABRICS IN THE WORK OF 4 WOMEN ARTISTS
It is not the first time that we talk about the use of alternative plastic techniques to let imagination and creativity run. This is the case with threads and embroidery, which transform on this occasion into a refined form of artistic production far from its immediate use in the world of sewing. All these pieces require infinite patience and give an example of tenacity, of love for things well done, of dedication, devotion and the search for new narrative discourses that deviate from expected in the field of visual arts.

WHEN DIGITAL ART BECOMES AN IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE
The current development of art moves along paths increasingly connected with technology and digital language. Although in the beginning, the virtual works had been to a certain extent unconsidered, because they seem to play down the importance of the authors who execute their pieces with their own hands; these forms of expression have followed a constant evolution to position themselves in their place, where they deserve the same respect and admiration as traditional disciplines.

ART WITHIN THE 7TH ART
The impact of cinema was, since its invention, the prelude to a whole discipline that continues to this day in constant evolution. The strength of the image and the appeal of the visual narrative has come to displace in many schools of arts the interest for more traditional forms of artistic expression. The world of contemporary creation did not escape this trend, and cinema, already consecrated as such, has been opening the way to other experimental forms that use the moving image as the main language.

THE ONES WHO LOOK: “MUJERES MIRANDO MUJERES” FESTIVAL
More and more disciplines have joined the reflection on the feminine condition that faces the current reality from the review and the questioning of its historical past. Thus literature, film, music, art, science, agriculture, to mention just a few, join the list of places from which to continue the debate on a movement in constant reinvention.

SPECIFIC IMAGES FOR ELUSIVE TIMES
Stopping, taking some time and being surprised. It seems a triviality but, either by imperatives or obligations, commitments or frustrated desires and, above all, by that epidemic of the 21st century that is the lack of time, usually, we do not calmly appreciate the things that surround us. Let's take a moment, let's go into the specific stories and emotions proposed by the artists and then decide with more conscience whether they convince us or not. Let us rest from the weight of everyday life. Know the proposals of Paulo Nunes-Arte Contemporânea, Bea Villamarín, Cornión y Montsequi galleries.

FROM FIGURE TO ABSTRACTION: FREED NARRATIVES
The future of creation is always to be discovered. Although when studying art we become obsessed with analysing the origins, relationships, links or transformations that characterize works or artists, with the consequent obsession to predict what the next art will bring, the reality is that on many occasions it is more pleasant to discover the stories without preconceived ideas, without frames, in their maximum freedom of expression and in their strictest current time. Freed narratives that can exceed these frames, often devised based on oppositions, dichotomies. In this sense, the Art Lounge, Aurora Vigil-Escalera and Víctor Lope Arte Contemporáneo galleries will exhibit a very interesting set of works, in which the abstract and figurative languages appear within balanced and very varied selections.

Know the proposals that BAT Alberto Cornejo, Moret Art, Zielinsky and Jorge Alcolea Galleries will show at the fair.
