El Banquete, "El color blanco", 2017.



The process to select the ten winner projects of the 28th Edition of Circuitos de Artes Plásticas started in February 2017. Since 28 years ago, the Regional Government of Madrid organises this call for projects to fund the making of creative proposals by authors younger than 35 years. In addition to contribute to the production of the work, the award includes the exhibition of the pieces in the Sala de Arte Joven of Madrid.

On the 15th of November, the opening will finally show the work of these creators, which since their selection didn’t take a breath on work. The artists selected are: Miguel Sánchez Bastida, Antonio Menchén Iglesias, Javier Velázquez Cabrero, Covadonga Moya Álvarez-Buylla, Rafael Munárriz Gimeno, Julia Varela Arribas, Marian Garrido Herrojo, Víctor Santamarina Castaño, José Jurado Gómez y the collective El Banquete (compounded by Alejandría Cinque, Raquel G.

Carlos Delgado Mayordomo was the curator of the showing, who will also lead the guided tours organised around the exhibition, starting on Wednesday 22nd. With these tours, the curator will enter more in-depth into the underlying subject of the exhibition, focused on art as a language of social critics in several aspects of human relationships, from power to gender issues.
