MMMAD closes its 2023 edition with a programme of conferences in the auditorium of Espacio Cultural Serrería Belga on Saturday 27 May, bringing together three national professionals who are pioneers in the introduction of digital art in Spain: the gallerist Alberto de Juan, the cultural manager María Brancós and the journalist Roberta Bosco.
Alberto de Juan is the owner and director of Galería Max Estrella, located in Madrid. This gallery project has been running uninterruptedly since 1994 with the vision of presenting a new generation of emerging and consolidated creators, both Spanish and foreign. A coherent list of artists that reflects the purpose of opening new paths within contemporary art with special attention to electronic or digital art. Max Estrella represents the work of the artists Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Daniel Canogar, Charles Sandison, Eugenio Ampudia and José Val del Omar.
María Brancós is Head of Exhibitions and Collections at Fundación Telefónica, where she develops an exhibition programme of her own production dedicated to exploring the major issues linked to digital transformation and promoting the use of new technologies applied to creation.
Roberta Bosco is a journalist, exhibition curator, researcher and teacher, specialising in contemporary art, electronic art and digital culture. She has been writing for the newspaper El País since 1998 and for 12 years had a weekly section on art and new technologies. She is a correspondent from Spain for Il Giornale dell'Arte, the leading Italian art magazine, and contributes to numerous publications. As an expert in art and technology, she has curated several exhibitions of digital art in various institutions and museums (CCCB, Macba, DHub, Arts Santa Mònica, ARCOmadrid) and has been a member of numerous juries.
