The Awwa art and design collective, temporarily opened an art gallery and creative studio in San Andrés y Sauces, where it organized the first inaugural group exhibition titled ISLAND 2.0 which brings together outstanding artists of the islands of La Palma and Tenerife.
The exhibition will run from September 13 until October 15 and unites several emerging and established artists working around modern art in Palma, such as Peter Faust, Isa Rossie, Rosa Vidal, Oscar Lorenzo, Mercedes Martin, Jorge Beda and Carlos Marrero. Alongside the Palmeran artists also involved the artists from La Laguna Jesús Guerra and Luis Palmero, one of the leaders of modern art in the Canaries.
In the words of Carlos Marrero, organizer of the exhibition “ISLA 2.0 aims to bring into the present the present: that is, calling to La Palma, and especially the municipality of San Andrés y Sauces, a bit of modern art, breaking the usual line art exhibitions around the realism that are often organized in La Palma”. “It also aims to be a demonstation that revindicates the role of artists as promoters in society, in that sense the sample is intended to review some of the discourses of art that artists such as César Manrique, Oscar Dominguez, Manolo Millares or expressed in the 1960s, which for some reason have been relegated to the margins of Canarian society. ”
The exhibition is open Monday to Friday from 8:00 to 13:00 and 16:00 to 20:00 hours. On Saturdays and Sundays it is likely that it can be enjoyed equally, although it would be best to call ahead because “this is a private initiative, and it all depends on the free time that we have.”
