Arévalo / Segovia, February 1st, 2024.– On February 22, the exhibition Paths of Understanding History will be inaugurated as a result of the collaboration between Collegium and the IE Creativity Center. Both institutions, based in Castilla y León, share a common interest in art and education. They have agreed to present a series of works from Collegium's permanent collection at the IE Creativity Center in Segovia, curated by Aldones Nino.

Students from the Value: Art & Material Culture course will participate in the project by researching the pieces, working on them in class with Professor Anna Magdalena Wieck, and being responsible for drafting texts about each artwork for the exhibition labels. Furthermore, the exhibition will be part of the artistic and academic program of the university, contributing to the IE Humanities Week and IE Creativity Day. The goal is for the exhibition to serve as a meeting place between art and education, fostering shared learning and cohesion within the university community. This exhibition is conceived as an adapted version for the IE space, stemming from History Between Persistence and Critique,  showcased at Collegium from October 2022 to February 2023. It addresses themes such as heritage, the construction of history, and educational processes. The display includes works from the Alfarería del Agua series by Brazilian artist Ayla Tavares, created during her artistic residency at Collegium in 2022, and a video documenting her stay.

The artists featured in the exhibition have diverse nationalities and backgrounds, providing a plural and global perspective to the project. Given the international profile of IE University and the 21st-century art collection of Collegium, approaching the project from a standpoint that promotes intercultural encounters, dialogue, and inclusion in art and education is crucial.

Paths of Understanding History includes works by Yto Barrada, Tim Berresheim, Iman Issa, Louise Lawler, Ibrahim Mahama, Carlos Martiel, Odires Mlászho, Walid Raad, Ayla Tavares, Mariana Tellería, and Nasan Tur. The exhibition will be open until April 13, from Monday to Friday, 10 am to 9 pm, and Saturdays from 12 pm to 8 pm.
