Itinerarios is a yearly event which presents work by awardees of the Botín Foundation"s Visual Arts Grants. Year after year, it acts as a thermometer gauging the current state of the art world and it also provides a snapshot of its predominant trends.

This year"s event explores the idea of the work of art as a medium to help viewers visualize processes. Over the last few decades the idea that the relevance of an artistic process, above and beyond its exhibition, is contained in the various stages of the project and its production, as opposed to the traditional concept of finished artworks ready to be accepted and consumed, has gained strength.
Using installations, documents, images, videos and relics, the artists of Itinerarios XXI exhibit the traces of their personal research processes to create a unique and though-provoking space for visitors.Read less
