‘Umbral’ display project

Exhibitions. The project is on display at thirteen different metro stations until 6 February.

The ‘Umbral’ display project uses interventions by ten artists and three projects by entities to address human rights, immigration, refuge and integration. The initiative features artwork which invites reflection and comprehension of the inequalities experienced by millions of people forced to migrate.

The project goes public on 10 December and coincides with the international conference ‘Cities for Rights’. Barcelona is hosting this year’s event, promoted by the Department of Citizen Rights, Culture, Participation and Transparency, at the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB) on 10 and 11 December.

The art interventions are the work of Yto Barrada and Leila Alaoui, Banu Cenetoglu, Ramón Esono, Daniel García Andújar, Eulàlia Grau, Rogelio López Cuenca and Elo Vega, Teresa Margolles, Dan Perjovschi, Estefanía Peñafiel and Hiwa K. There are also three projects by the entities Frontera Sud, Sueños Refugiados and Un Regal per a Kushbu.

The works will be on display from 10 December to 6 February at thirteen metro stations around Barcelona’s ten districts.

Activities are also being organised to raise public awareness and knowledge about the reality of migrants and refugees. An important part of the project is a publication which will act as the exhibition catalogue (with details on the works of art, the projects by entities and a map of metro stations where they can be seen), and at the same time, as a means for disseminating various topics relating to human rights and immigration.
