Marina Abramović, 2021 Princess of Asturias Laureate for the Arts, will visit the Marina Abramović - Performative Video Works exhibition, a sample of eight of her works that she has personally selected for Awards Week. It is installed in the School of Arts and Crafts at the former La Vega Arms Factory in Oviedo. The visit is scheduled for Wednesday 20th October at 6:00pm.

The show is made up of eight pieces, three of which, Levitation, Carrying the Milk and Vanitas, are photographs of the project entitled “The Kitchen, Homage to Saint Therese”, carried out in 2009 in the kitchens of La Laboral complex, in Gijón. These three works are part of a set of videos and photographs in colour and black and white that emerged in homage to St Teresa of Ávila. The show also includes the works: Golden Mask; Rest Energy; Confession; Art Must Be Beautiful, Artist Must Be Beautiful; and The Onion.

Visit by Lucy Lake, CEO of CAMFED

The CEO of the organization CAMFED - Campaign for Female Education, 2021 Princess of Asturias Award for International Cooperation, will visit the “Taking the Floor” exhibition, which forms part of the cultural programme for primary, secondary, pre-university and vocational training students in the Principality of Asturias.

Lucy Lake will also visit the permanent installation of “Sylva”, a cutting-edge artistic installation created in collaboration with the international architecture studio MAEID and the robotics company ABB, which conceptualizes the importance of education by developing a living organism whose constant evolution and growth will be determined by an algorithm that processes the impact data of the work of CAMFED - Campaign for Female Education.

The visit by Lucy Lake is scheduled for Tuesday 19th October at 4:30pm.
