Antonio Guerra

Antonio Guerra's practice shows an interdisciplinary approach to the photography medium that reflects on systems of construction in the contemporary landscape, the processes of their transformation, and our own perception of them through images.⁠ For his work, he has received a MUSAC Artistic Creation Grant, a Pilar Juncosa & Sotheby’s Award from the Miró Mallorca Foundation, a Villalar Foundation grant, a Community of Madrid Visual Art Grant, a VEGAP Grant for Visual Creation, and the Roberto Villagraz grant from EFTI.

Carlos Alba

Carlos Alba is a visual artist working mainly with photography, video, painting and installation. His work focuses on human and non-human relationships in the modern world, especially subjects related to his life. He uses his artwork as therapy to understand his feelings, his past, his masculinity, and his fears. He is exploring issues from everyday life, especially those that affect vulnerable living beings. His tools are objects and archives that help him find the final visual artwork he wants to make.⁠

Suwon Lee

Suwon Lee is currently based in Madrid, Spain. She belongs to that Venezuelan diaspora forced to migrate — to abandon their lives and familiar spaces due to the socio-political crisis in her country of birth. ⁠Lee has exhibited individually in Caracas, Madrid, and in international group shows such as the Guangzhou Image Triennial curated by Gerardo Mosquera  (2021); Vincent Price Art Museum, California, USA (2018);  and Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain, Paris, France (2013).

Arguiñe Escandón

Arguiñe Escandón combines her work as a freelance photographer and teacher of creative processes with personal projects. She focuses her attention on psychological and sociological aspects, as well as on exploring emotional bonds. She is interested in the thin line between fiction and reality and builds an imaginary wrapped in mysterious atmospheres.⁠ She is the winner of the master’s scholarship in Photography in project development (Blank Paper, Madrid).
