Bloc Billboard: Tania Blanco
01 November – 05 January
Free & open to all
We are delighted to present the work of artist Tania Blanco as part of our Bloc Billboard programme. Tania is the third artist to present work as part of the 2019 programme and her work will be installed on our new billboard located alongside the gallery on Eyre Lane.
The Bloc Billboard commission is an opportunity for artists to work in a new context and to question the nature of presenting art in the public realm.
Tania Blanco is currently participating in the Postgraduate Program (2017-2020) of the Royal Academy of Arts in London. She graduated from the San Carlos Fine Arts Faculty (Polytechnic University of Valencia) in 2001, completing part of her studies at Middlesex University in London. Blanco ́s work has a multifaceted character whereby several vectors converge, often focusing on recent socio-political events and environmental worries. She has participated in residencies and received grants and awards such as the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, Casa de Velázquez Residency Grant (Académie de France à Madrid), Fundación Especial Caja Madrid Grant (Generaciones 2014), Bogliasco Foundation Residency Grant (Liguria Arts Center), Caixa Galicia Foundation Artist Grant or Formarte Spanish Ministry of Culture Residency Grant (Collège d'Espagne à Paris), among others. Blanco ́s work has also been shown in solo exhibitions at museums and galleries such as the Sala Parpalló (Valencia, SP), Bilbaoarte Foundation (Bilbao, SP), Alarcón Criado Gallery (Sevilla, SP) or Josedelafuente Gallery (Santander, Spain). She has also participated in group exhibitions, including the Centquatre (Paris, FR), Beall Center for Art +Technology (Irvine, California, USA), Assembly Point (London, UK), or La Casa Encendida (Madrid, SP).
