The jury of the call, formed by Alfonso Palacio Álvarez, Director of the Museum of Fine Arts of Asturias; Ana Mª Fernández García, Professor of Art History at the University of Oviedo and Patricia Villanueva Illanes, Head of Exhibitions at LABoral Centro de Arte, selected the Vacation proposal by the artist Olmo Cuña, as the winner of the scholarship for its “conceptual solidity that addresses to issues that have to do with heritage, ethnography or sociology. “It also presents a good resolution at a formal level and an anchorage in the territory.”
