The show Rescursos Humanos by Daniela Ortiz opened at the Fundació Joan Miró, also in Barcelona. Ortiz’s works, making dramatic use of manufactured works such as textiles and ceramics, explore the role that human beings play in the economic and social infrastructure of society. She uses native country Peru and adopted country Spain as case studies; some of the textiles used were a result of collaboration with Nilda from The Center for Traditional Textiles in Cuzco.  Marisol of Aracari attended the exhibition and thought it was brilliant, particularly the talk and presentation from the artist. The show runs until the 8th of January, you can find out all about it here.
