Hi everyone! My name is Jerónimo. I was born in Buenos Aires in 1990, but I have been in love with Valencia for many years. I moved to the city in 2008 where I studied Art History, and stayed here since then, except in short occasions where I lived in Berlin, Madrid and Barcelona. In this last place I attended a masters in International Cultural Cooperation

Tour description

At a point where the old metaphysical debate about the conception of art is born, is this tour in which we will see failures, mostly modest, that share some differential artistic elements of the tradition , but maintaining other substantial ones. Its characteristics are design, ecology, denunciation, encouraging reflection and they are, of course, ephemeral.

We are talking about Alternative and Experimental Failures. For eight years I have been doing this tour, where we review those faults that, due to their ecological characteristics, social denunciation or artistic components where design and originality prevail, we can classify as "different".

We will begin the trip at the IVAM, where we will visit the exhibition: Alfredo Ruiz: "Roads to modernity in the faults". This artist is an essential reference to understand this type of faults.

Later, we will begin a tour through the streets of the Barrio del Carmen and the Botanical, looking for this type of monument and explaining (or at least trying to) its meaning and most outstanding characteristics.

Some of the Fallas that we will visit:

  • Crown
  • ribesan
  • Ripalda
  • Tree Square
  • Angel Square
  • lepanto
  • Borrull - Socors

 Do not miss this opportunity to experience some "different" fallas. An ephemeral and unique tour. There is only one chance!
