More than a space for contemplation, NF/ NIEVES FERNÁNDEZ is a place open to criticism and debate, interested in our time artists’ creativity and investigation. We believe in the gallery as a dynamic space, and in this sense, the gallery has developed programs that go beyond the classical conception of gallery spaces, organizing talks, performances and hosting, since the pandemic, INTERLUDIO, a program of brief exhibitions for artists to present projects, works in progress, or pieces that request a different format of appreciation, and that had not been previously displayed.
The gallery also promotes CAMPING, a nonprofit project that occupies our space with dance, music, theater, performance and literature, as a mechanism to support cultural agents and enhance networks. With the ambition to be more permeable and participatory, the project allows cultural actors to freely develop and exhibit their creations.
Additionally, we have created VARIATION together with the Parisian Galerie Sator, a collaborative program that aims to increase the international visibility of artists from both galleries through the presentation of individual exhibition projects in Paris and Madrid. We also created the experimental cooperative platform Noplace through which we collaborate and share resources with the Mexican gallery Arroniz, the Colombian Nueveochenta, and the German Michael Sturm.
NF/ NIEVES FERNÁNDEZ aims to provide a meeting point for creators and the public, viewing the gallery as a privileged landscape in which to enjoy a period of reflection and coexistence away from the disruptions of the external world. Celebrating and honoring the journey initiated in 1977 by Nieves Fernández, the gallery looks forward to future opportunities with great enthusiasm, challenging ourselves and the models in which we live through refined artistic practices, well-founded critiques, and sincere dialogues as the only means to build an improved and sustainable society.
