On January 15, the LZ46 program of Freijo Gallery hosts the presentation of the TEXT [NO TEXT] catalogue, a catalogue which was the result of the exhibition dedicated to artist's books and publications which form part of the Polytechnic University of Valencia's collection, which recently took place in La Nau Cultural Centre at the University of Valencia between November 2019 and January 2020.
In the presentation, authors of the texts included in the publication will be present: Horacio Fernández, Doctor in Art History and specialist in contemporary photography and photobooks, Antonio Alcaraz, curator of the exhibition and director of the Collection of Artist's Books and Publications at the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV), and Angustias Freijo, whose interview with Felipe Ehrenberg about his Beau Geste Press experience is part of this catalogue.
Alongside this presentation, Freijo Gallery shows in its LZ46 space an exhibition in which some of the artists included in the publication are present. This exhibition maintains the title of the catalogue, TEXT [NO TEXT].
