Transversal Aesthetics is considered as a "hive" of projects connected to medium-sized towns, as well as to cultural venues related to them. In 2017, three other projects are being carried out in the cities of Manresa, Mataró and Vilanova i la Geltrú in Barcelona, under the common theme of how each city relates to the transformation of work spaces. Transversal Aesthetics collaborates with Museu Comarcal de Manresa, MAC Mataró Art Contemporani and Centre d'Art Contemporani La Sala (Vilanova i la Geltrú).
Transversal Aesthetics is conceived as a networked space for experimentation, to initiate creative projects with the involvement of artists, educators and other social and cultural agents active in their regional contexts. It is a framework for testing out new methods which may impact upon the development of educational activities and measures of mediation adapted to specific local contexts. Through sharing subject-matter, and by tracing out a variety of interpretations of a chosen location, a multifaceted vision of repeated phenomena in certain localities may be delineated.
TRANSVERSAL AESTHETICS - PERIPHERAL ECOSYSTEMS is possible thanks to the co-production of IDENSITAT and Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Huarte, with the collaboration of Ayuntamiento de Villava and Generalitat de Catalunya. Departament de Cultura.
