Responding to her need to connect with others, Rania Matar captures the nuances of specific individuals while in quarantine, her subjects photographed through a door or window, connecting across barriers.
The Bombas Gens activities program has been conceived as a mediation space to exchange and share knowledge and experiences. Conscious that the public does not exist per se but is ephemerally constructed through the activation of proposals, different sensibilities and interests of those publics that visit the Centre will be considered and attended to. Constructing a space that responds to diversity and context is the centre’s principle objective, so that it is in a continuous, living state of transformation and can never be considered finished.
The central point of the activities will be the collection and temporary exhibitions and, using different creative and collaborative methodologies, practices and proposals, the range of artistic practices will be widened, endowing the finished works with additional dimensions of experience and reflection.
We want to share an art collection and exhibition space to promote the awareness and knowledge of art, expanding horizons both in our city and further afield. Our aim is to be a reference point in the art world that is recognized for its quality and the uniqueness of what we exhibit through exhibitions of the artists in the collection and others related to it.
