Nit de l'Art 2006
La Caja Blanca will open its new season of exhibitions on Thursday 21st of September with a solo show by the Irish photographer and video artist Richard Mosse.
In a time when war torn cities and landscapes devastated by natural disasters fill the newspapers and television programmes we consume, this young artist questions the validity of the images distributed by the media industry as a means of communicating the reality of human suffering.
Noves Presències is a yearly initiative designed to identify talented
artists (under 35 years of age) which have had little or no exposure within the
commercial arts circuit, and give them a platform through which to present their work
to the public within the context of a solo show held within selected private art galleries.
The project is funded by the Consell de Mallorca.
The selection of artists and the exhibition of the work is carried out on a voluntary
basis by galleries belonging to AIGAB, The Independent Association of Art Galleries of
the Balearic Region.

Juul Jacobs will be exhibiting his extraordinary sculptures and installations at La Caja Blanca through till Saturday 24th June 2006. Under the title Re-Evolution, Juul explores hypothetical scenarios depicting the future of our species. The result is a freaky experiment, which looks colourful and funny on the surface, creepy and unsettling when you stop to consider the implications. What does this apparently naive exercise reveal about us?
