"The art behind art" is a didactic exhibition in which visitors will appreciate a wide selection of works produced in the Articruz workshop over 10 years, as well as many of the processes behind these works and that Articruz makes possible every day.
Behind the work of an artist there is a series of searches, tests, investigations and processes that are not always evident for those who face the finished work. Materializing an idea is a difficult task and contemporary art requires complex methods, technical experimentation and often the accompaniment of a team that allows the artist to develop what has been proposed. That is what the Articruz workshop has represented for numerous creators since its opening in April 2009. Constituted with the primary function of being the workshop of maestro Carlos Cruz-Diez in Panama, Articruz was also conceived as a workshop for artists, making available to others the installed capacity and knowledge that the master's family had been building in several decades of development of his work. Articruz is the place that many have chosen to bring their ideas and projects to reality; it is the space of dialogue and shared search; it is the opportunity for growth for new talent and the secure support for the consolidated teachers; It is the laboratory to test, invent, discover and propose. Articruz is the art behind art.
