Radio Symposium – LaPribada
Radio intervention. October 28th 2016.
Tabakalera, Plaza de las cigarreras, 1, Donostia-San Sebastián.
 
LaPribada is a transformation of the “Artisten Meeting Point”, organized by Okela, where three artists get together in the same space to show and speak about their work. In this case, Okela’s proposal had to be adapted to the characteristics of LaPublika, and they decided to take their lines of decision-making to the limit. They looked for three artists with different trajectories, all of them women and all of them Basque. They sought to give visibility to what is not normally seen and show the entrails of the exhibition. Together with Olatz Otalora, Sahatsa Jauregi and Gema Intxausti, we will go inside their work, always setting out from the private sphere: listening to music, visiting their studios and making live connections.
 
With the participation of con las artistas Sahatsa Jauregui, Olatz Otalora and Gentz del Valle.

OKELA Sormen Lantegia is a space for artistic creation, research, experimentation and diffusion located in San Francisco Street in Bilbao. It was set up by three visual artists: Nora Aurrekoetxea, Izaro Ieregi and Irati Urrestarazu Zubizarreta.
It is a former butcher’s shop converted into a space for creation and still conserves its former identity, from which its name derives.
It is also a critical, constructive, feminist and Basque-speaking space, which revolves around the plastic and visual arts.
OKELA focuses on local contemporary art. It was formed with the main goal of creating networks amongst artists and providing coexistence and relationships between the different agents of the artistic field and the citizens.
