Alejandro Palacín IN RESiDENCE at the School Vall d’Hebron!

Alejandro Palacín (Barcelona, 1989) took his degree in Fine Arts and a Masters in PRODART (artistic production and research) at the University of Barcelona, which he finished in 2017. He later took part in the 2018 Catalan Art Biennale and the JCE (European Young Artist Biennale).

Recently, his work has been exhibited at venues such as Fabra i Coats, with the “Mirar con cariño” [Look with Affection] project, in Halfhouse with “Fuegoscruzaeosrebotantes”, curated by Luis Bisbe and in Espronceda Art Space at Crosswords. Last year, he produced “Jugar com una fruita no és jugar” [Playing like fruit isn't playing] with Mònica Planes. This is a two-person project, curated by David Armengol and Albert Mercadé and shown at the Arranz-Bravo Foundation. The exhibition later developed into the “La bola festeta” public sculpture in Plaça d’Europa (l’Hospitalet de Llobregat, Barcelona). He is currently preparing an individual exhibition at the Nogueras Blanchard, called “Galán de noche / serpiente dorada” in the context of Art Nou 2019.

School Vall d’Hebron

This is the third time that the Vall d’Hebron secondary school (Sant Genís dels Agudells, Horta-Guinardó), has taken part in the Creators IN RESiDENCE programme, with 2nd year ESO students. Margarita Andreu (2010-2011) and Agnès Pe (2018-2019) were the creators in the previous two editions. 


The Institut Vall d'Hebron is housed in a modernist building from the beginning of the 20th century designed as an orphanage by Enric Sagnier i Villavecchia. It started operating as an educational centre in the 1970s. It is very close to the Parc de Collserola and Vall d'Hebron has one of the most extensive educational services in the city of Barcelona.
