  • The GENERA 2018 Innovation Gallery highlights 19 pioneering projects in energy efficiency and renewable energies
    Increasing energy efficiency, significantly reducing consumption and reducing environmental impact are the main aims that characterise the projects presented in this edition. Saving in energy production by leveraging Internet of Things (IoT) technology, providing electricity in developing countries and remote locations, or expanding solar energy capture are some of the most striking objectives of these projects.

    The Innovation Gallery at GENERA 2018, Energy and Environment International TradeFair, organised by IFEMA from 13 to 15 June, has selected 19 projects in recognition of their contribution to the development of renewables and energy efficiency in Spain. The initiative aims to encourage the scientific and technological research effort by public-sector and private organisations, and the innovation work by companies in this sector.

    The projects have been selected by a jury of experts, professionals and representatives of leading industry associations, by taking into account each project’s degree of innovation, energy efficiency, applicability and ability to positively influence the progress of renewable energies and energy efficiency.

  • ´As Tables Are Shelves´
    As Tables Are Shelves happens for its 3rd edition in Lisbon, Portugal as part of ARCOlisboa. There is no hesitation on my part when affirming that a publishing area at an art fair adds on immensely to the event as a whole. Mainly to the discussion and affirmation of the importance of artists’ books in artistic practice. Artists’ Books can range from actual artworks in book form, to special early rare editions of the Futurist movement, to contemporary fanzine publishing. The idea in an experiment like this one of ‘As Tables Are Shelves’ is to open up the participation to as many models possible – be it printmaking, posters, leaflets, the book, graphic design, pop-up, visual arts and poetry, literary narrative or pure conceptualism. Even if running parallel to the art world per se, the artista book and its derivatives has caught the interest of many and is now considered by scholars, curators and critics as fundamental in the discussion of contemporary art.

    The intimacy in the relationship with an artist book is something unique and non- transferable, it’s a one-to-one connection with an artwork made so privately. May these publishing gatherings multiply and flourish as it makes such a difference in complementing and understanding the nature of so much art.
