White Night 2017

29 September 2017

LABoral participates in this annual event with culture with the inauguration of the exhibition of the artist Jacobo Bugarín and the SummerLAB 2017 program

The White Night 2017 in Gijón/Xixón is an annual event that arises from the collaboration between the Municipal Foundation of Culture, Education and Popular University of Gijón/Xixón and the city’s art galleries, as a clear commitment in favor of the transformative role of culture and, in particular, contemporary artistic manifestations.

LABoral also participates in this activity with several proposals for the night of September 29:

At 7:30 p.m. The artist of Asturian descent Jacobo Bugarín presents Of art more than cold, an exhibition resulting from a two-month artistic residency at LABoral, in which he reflects on the change of model to which institutions are subjected given the fragmentation and expansion of the knowledge brought about by technological advances.

Also on Friday the 29th, SummerLAB 2017 begins, a place to exchange work experiences that promote the creative and critical use of technology and show new forms of creation and production. SummerLAB offers an open space for artists, industry professionals and the public that encourages exchange and interaction, creating a context aimed at expanding knowledge of the visual arts, sound creation, digital culture and emerging technologies.
