WeMadeThis Exhibition

The celebration of Spanish post-digital design is arriving to Manchester on the 5th June. WeMadeThis.Es is a project founded as a book presenting the work of some of the Spanish creators of post-digital design and showing the strength of this sector in Spain – from graphic design, motion design, typography, visual identity, among other disciplines. The book will be presented as part of an exhibition showcasing some of the young, bright, playful and daring artworks of Spanish artists. Artists featured include Alex Trochut, Brosmind, Hey Studio, Marta Cerdà, Losiento, among many others…

The book has been presented in several places in the United States to publicize the work of artists in Spain. Now, WMT continues its career in the hands of Spanish Cultural Action and makes it in format of the exhibition and tours various parts of Europe and ending at Twenty Twenty Two in Manchester. The goal remains the same, to publicize this vibrant part of Spanish culture.

During the selection of the artists, Héctor Ayuso, director of the OFFF, a festival dedicated to digital cultures where a new generation of creators has emerged, affirmed the following: as Spaniards we carry in our DNA the “ability to survive.” We understand better than anyone that the way we relate to new technologies is changing.

Today the real challenge for the Spanish artists is to look for new and unconventional ways to tell stories and focus every effort into becoming exactly what they have always wanted to be. WeMadeThis.Es celebrates this moment with more than 300 pages of visual imagery.

WeMadeThis.Es is published by Indexbook and SPAIN arts & culture.

The exhibitions opens on the 5th June and runs until the 5th July 2014.

More about WeMadeThis.Es:

We Made This is a project originally conceived by the Cultural Counseling of the Embassy of Spain in Washington, to promote the post-digital Spanish design. Curated by Hector Ayuso, WMT was founded as a book presenting the work of some of the Spanish creators of post digital design and showing the strength of this sector in Spain (from graphic design, motion design, typography, visual identity, among other disciplines…). The book has been presented in several places in the United States to publicize the work of our artists there. Now, WMT continues its career in the hands of Spanish Cultural Action and makes it in format of the exhibition, which will tour various parts of Europe, with the same goal, to publicize this vibrant part of our culture. The exhibition will be accompanied by workshops and presentations and will feature an original piece in each venue. With this second assault, AC/E wants to promote the field of our creative industries that is constantly evolving and that doesn’t lack talent, thus fulfilling one of its goals which is the internationalization of Spanish culture.
