Paso de Gigantes (2013) takes us to a forecasted geography, as if in a visual cartography: Locations which are linked to landscape transformations due to large public infrastructures temporarily suspended and to singular buildings of cultural use left abandoned, which have been built or refurbished with public funds. Art, as a method to analyse contemporaneity, helps us make the portrait of a time and a geography based on its abandoned architectures and public works, stablishing a new category of the sublime to make a chronicle of the present, which is charged with an urgency for future times.

Paso de gigantes, by Cristina Ferrández, a project which has been specifically developed for this festival, within the framework of a two-weeks production residency programme of the artist at Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial as input to the Festival Miradas de Mujeres 2014.

Festival Miradas de Mujeres is an initiative of MAV, Mujeres en las Artes Visuales, a statewide non-profit interbranch association made up by 400 plastic arts professionals based in Spain. Their aim is to disseminate the role of women in all professional fields of visual arts, from artistic creation to curatorship, artistic criticism, research and management. In line with this objective, the Festival invites museums, galleries, art centres and universities to join in with exhibitions and activities by female artists during the month of March, with the purpose of bringing together as many exhibitions by female artists as possible and to occupy the exhibition agenda of that month, at national level and, starting this year, at international level.
