Junta de Andalucía. Department of Education, Culture and Sports – Thanks to their support towards the development of Cultural Industries, and their program INICIARTE, we were able to develop a parallel exhibition synchronized with public outside screenings in Madrid and New York “In the Mood for Today”. The show reflects on the mood that week days have dropped on the collective consciousness, in an attempt to characterize the identity and specific personality of each day.
Each day of the week projected a different selection of videoartworks, inviting the viewers to come back every day to glimpse concepts related to the divinities of the stars ruling each day of the week in most western cultures: MONDAY · Moon · Night · Femininity · Virginity · Fertility · Hunting · Wildness // TUESDAY · Mars · Fire · War · Army · Weapon · Fecundity // WEDNESDAY · Mercury · Water · Travel · Cultures · Abundance · Goods · Commerce · Volatility // THURSDAY · Jupiter · Wood · Justice · Wisdom · Cosmos · Order · Happiness // FRIDAY · Venus · Metal · Peace · Relaxation · Love · Beauty · Emotions · Dreams // SATURDAY · Saturn · Earth · Agriculture · Time · Chaos · Abstraction · Uncertainty // SUNDAY · Sun · Sky · Light · Truth · Herds · Healing · Muses · Music · Poetry · Art
From 2007 to 2011, the Generalitat of Catalunya, through their Institut Catalá de Empreses Culturals, has supported many of our international endeavors, through their detailed program of sponsoring the internationalization process of the cultural industries from Catalunya.
The Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports of Spain - Through their programs towards the development of the Spanish Cultural Industries, towards the development of the Fine Art Industries and towards the Cinema and Audiovisual Arts Industries, the department of Culture of the Government of Spain has allowed the production of many of our projects, from 2005 to 2012.
