Noemi Iglesias is a multidisciplinary artist and researcher working with porcelain and long durational performative formats. Her practice is concerned with the role of visual arts at the intersections of experimental disciplines such as sculpture and digital technologies, using traditional ceramics techniques and digital tools to report how emotional experiences, such as falling in love, are influenced by consumerist strategies. In 2024 she will have her first solo exhibition at the Thyssen Bornemisza National Museum in Spain and also at the Fine Arts Museum in Asturias.
The World Crafts Council Europe (WCCE) is a European network representing nearly 40 craft organisations (members) from over 20 European countries whose main statutory mission is to promote crafts in Europe, by increasing the awareness and appreciation of crafts as an integral part of the cultural, social, and economic well-being of society.
At Contemporania, WCCE is telling a story of contemporary European crafts in a special exhibition section at Palau Pedralbes. The showcase includes works by 11 artists from different European countries, who were selected via an open call, for their demonstration of an exceptional level of craftsmanship and creativity reflecting the current moment and the values of the 2023 European Year of Skills. The featured artists’ work are made in techniques ranging from ceramics, basketry, textile, tapestry to woodwork and glass blowing.
