The Amara neighbourhood in San Sebastian will be hosting art installations, exhibitions, performances, shows and guided tours from 19 September to 2 October as part of the Corners of Europe programme, which San Sebastian 2016 European Capital of Culture is participating in. The programme comprises 11 projects which involve around thirty international artists and have already been on display in Stockholm, Belfast, Blyth, Ljubljiana, Zagreb and Rijeka.
The projects require the collaboration of local agents and citizens, and they explore issues such as the emotional journey that follows a traumatic event and the situations experienced by two artists who swap lives. These pieces of work are the result of journeys that the artists have made to different points of Europe, where they have been working in collaboration with others on projects which are tailored to the reality of each place.
Areas such as Plaza de Ferrerías, Plaza de las Cofradías Donostiarras, Avenida de Madrid and Ernest Lluch Cultural Centre will act as the venues for some of the activities.
The programme will begin on one of the No. 26 buses on 19 September with the “Hide or Reveal” project, an installation which reflects on travel through the window of a bus. This will be followed by the official opening of the “Put Yourself in My Place” exhibition on 20 September at 19:00 in the Ernest Lluch Cultural Centre, and then the “In Between” project, which will be taking place on 21 September at Anoeta underground station. After this event has taken place, a range of activities will be happening in different parts of Amara between 28 September and 2 October.
