Everything that exists takes up space and can be weighed


Material and collage workshop around the exhibition Tàpies. Wood, Papers, Cardboards and Collages. With Teresa Rubio.

For Antoni Tàpies, materials were important, for they can all transmit a series of concepts by themselves. Tàpies dignified ‘poor’ and precarious materials,
intervening to give them a value and to draw our attention to them.


Matter is everything that occupies a certain space in the universe, possesses energy and is subject to changes over time. Everything we see, feel and touch is matter. And in its transformation into perceptible reality, we encounter it in different states: solid, liquid and gaseous.


In this workshop we will play with ink, move the air and experiment with the qualities of cardboard and paper recovered from other contexts. We will intervene using different gestures and actions such as tearing, staining, crumpling, folding, drilling or moving, and listen to what the materials have to say.


Teresa Rubio is a cultural mediator, art educator and collage artist. She studied Art History at the universities of Salamanca and Siena. She has a Diploma of
Advanced Studies from the University of Barcelona and a Masters in Art Criticism and Communication from the University of Girona. From 2008 to 2020, she was Co-Director of the Education Department of the Centre d’Art Tecla Sala, l’Hospitalet, and was in charge of the education and mediation project, What the Cell! A Macro Look at a Unit of Life at the Centre d’Art La Capella (2020-22). She currently collaborates with the Fundació Joan Miró, the Fundació Antoni Tàpies, the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona and Apropa Cultura, among others.


She is a specialist in museum education, where she uses the imaginative, poetic and critical potential of the artistic processes to generate spaces in which to meet and bring art and life together. She applies artistic methodologies to ways of learning by encouraging experimentation and working with the body and senses. Her interests lie in diversity and affection, and the practice of collage as language and metaphor.
