Art Interchange Chicago-Barcelona

Aquest any hem tornat a participar a l’intercanvi «Art Exchage Chicago-Barcelona». Es tracta de promoure la col.laboració entre el nostre institut i l’Steinmetz High School de Chicago des de la matèria de Dibuix artístic de primer de batxillerat.

Vam iniciar el treball aquest curs partint d’un treball anterior de la matèria: una obra per encàrrec partint de la idea de col.laboració entre un alumne de cada centre. A partir del concepte de ciutat, cada alumne del nostre centre va idear una obra per ser realitzada a Chicago. A continuació, els alumnes americans ens van enviar uns textos per desenvolupar una obra sobre la nostra ciutat.

A continuació us mostrem els treballs realitzats amb els textos originals (els noms inicials corresponen al alumnes americans). 

Algunes de les obres es van mostrar a la recent exposició d’arts plàstiques i disseny a la biblioteca Caterina Albert.

Us mostrem també algunes imatges del procès de treball i documentació.

En alguns casos, conèixer la gènesis d’aquestes obres és molt més interessant que el resultat final.

El treball ha estat molt profitós i ara mateix els nostres treballs volen cap a Chicago, on seran exposats aviat.
