The Sotoliva Ship of the Port Authority of Santander (APS) will continue its activity this Thursday the 2nd, at 7:00 pm, with the inauguration of the exhibition ‘Horizon’ by Bubi Canal, a Cantabrian artist based in New York (United States).
The exhibition, which can be visited until February 25, 2024, consists of a selection of works, sixty photographs and three videos, as well as publications and other materials belonging to the last ten years in the artist’s production.
Bubi Canal playfully addresses ideas about hybrid mythology, identity and personal history, creating a worldview that leads to imagining worlds that are not real. His main focus is photography, which allows him to incorporate elements from other disciplines into his practice to build his own world for the camera.
As explained by the curator of the exhibition, Carmen Quijano, the title ‘Horizon’ maintains “an open and optimistic attitude” towards the future.
“Horizon has a universal resonance and evokes the idea of looking forward and exploring the unknown. The horizon appears in many images as a space where stories unfold. realities where the game and spontaneity is very much there.”
The president of APS, César Díaz, indicated that the exhibition closes this year’s program in the Nave Sotoliva, a space that after the recent reopening has begun to reintegrate into the cultural agenda of the city.
During 2024, new steps will be taken towards its consolidation, since the closure for the rehabilitation of the Embarcadero Palace will allow the focus of the cultural activity of the Port Authority to be transferred to the Nave Sotoliva itself and the Faro Cabo Mayor Art Center.
