The third edition will revolve around the theme of water, an essential element for life. Water cycles and availability have been drastically modified by the effects of climate change and pollution, two anthropogenic phenomena that, among others, are causing alterations of ecosystems. Our purpose is to collect some contemporary proposals that tackle this issue through an ecological approach.

PACA_Proyectos Artísticos Casa Antonino will show the selected videos during 2018 whithin  other activities (encounters, residencies, workshops) related with the topic.

The exhibition will  travel to other places in Spain such as Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Espacio Guia), Teruel (Human and Social Science Department), Salamanca (Espacio Zink), Valencia (La Posta Foundation) and Las Tablas de Daimiel National Park (Cultura de Ribera). Furthermore, it will also be shown in other countries: at Climate, Sustainability & the arts (CSArts) at Temple University in Philadelphia (USA), at the Botanical Garden of Marnay-sur-Seine (France) and El Lobi in San Juan (Puerto Rico).The selected videos will be part of collective show which is scheduled to travel to several exhibition spaces in Spain and internationally.
