The Tenerife Espacio de las Artes (TEA - Tenerife Arts Space) will host “Crisis?, What Crisis? Chapter 3. Intimacies, subjectivities and other elective affinities", marked by the need to narratively build lives that had to cope with a changing context that greatly hampered living in the long-term. It will be open until 13th October, from Tuesday to Sunday, 10:00-20:00.

The Canarian artists participating blossomed or matured around 2008 and were hit hard by the crisis, which is what the programme’s title refers to, as well as alluding to a famous Supertramp record from 1975. The programme’s subtitle is “Does catastrophe have a form?”, as the programme aims to find continuities in a generation marked by instability. Painting was chosen as the main process; not because painting was normal for the artists, but quite the opposite, because it had ceased to be a viable technique, unable, because of its slow pace and immobility, to illustrate accelerated lives.
