• Six contemporary Spanish artists have developed site-specific commissions for this project

• The exhibition opens on February 21 at 5 PM

Arévalo, February 7, 2023.- On February 21, Collegium will present the exhibition Double my affections! [¡Doblad mis amores!], conceptualized by Spanish curator Chus Martínez. The exhibition, which will remain open to the public until September 2023, is made up of six site-specific commissions developed by a series of outstanding young Spanish artists: Regina de Miguel, Teresa Solar, Belén Rodriguez, Álvaro Urbano, Pep Vidal, and Marc Vives.
Double my affections! takes its title from a quote by the poet Ramón Llull, which serves as a starting point to reflect on the capacity of art to generate and multiply love, counteracting the multiple pains that life sometimes brings us. The exhibitions provide a space to see art and, at the same time, to think about a better way of feeling in general. A better way to connect with the world is also a way to be more receptive to our way of understanding life and the many other ways that coexist with our own. Loving a little more opens us to the possibility of being loved a little more.

Double my affections! is the result of the encounter and interaction of the artists and the curator with Arevalo and its surroundings, where they have made repeated visits over the last few years. Underlying the entire project is the intention to create a link with the land, with the church, with luck, with the stories that each work tells and those that may arise from visits to the exhibition.
