INTRODUCTION
This workshop consists of learning the functioning of one of today's most widely used programs for professional and amateur photographers for organising, managing and retouching pictures. The best feature of Lightroom is that it brings together into one program a variety of tasks which previously could only be done using different programs. Please note that Lightroom may be used by complete beginners, and that no experience with Photoshop is necessary in order to use it.

Lightroom lets the user import, classify and tag images, apart, obviously, from displaying them or readying them for printing, sending, uploading to social networks, etc..

COURSE CONTENT

– Importing images
– Setting up better classifications for a better selection among images.
– Tagging images with Keywords.
– How to search for a few photos among all my pictures, wherever they are.
– Making intelligent collections, using themes.
– The basic display. Retouching and editing images.
– The essential tools.
– Synchronising the display among various images.
– Preparing to export images for publication on social networks, for printing, and other means of distribution.
– Preparing a photo presentation with music, or, how to make and print out a photo-album.

WHO IS THE COURSE AIMED AT?
As no previous knowledge of programming is necessary, the course is aimed at anyone interested in art and photography who wishes to learn how to make the best use of this program.

TEACHER
Jordi Cabanas studied at the Institut d’Estudis fotogràfics de Catalunya, earning a superior degree in photography. Soon after he started work as a staff photographer at 9 Nou, with freelance collaborations with newspapers such as La Vanguardia and El Periodico.
Since 2010 he has had his own photographic studio at which he teaches photography and editing programs such as Lightroom or Photoshop, apart from organising photographic journeys around Spain and to Morocco.

INTRODUCTION
What is a performance? What considerations must be taken into account when making a performance? What parameters condition performance as a work of art? What use is there in making a record of a performance? Need one be a performer to realise a performance?

The aim of this microworkshop is to resolve these and other questions pertaining to performance as a medium of artistic expression. We will deal, in an overlapping way, with aspects related to the pre-production and realisation of a work of performance art, such as the space in which the performance takes place, the duration, the figure of the performer and personal image rights, audiences and strategic planning, budgeting, and other practical questions involved in making the best use of performance art.

CONTENT
Performance art may serve artists as a kind of engine, as a language or as a testing ground, and those artists who incorporate it into their practices must adjust to its needs, avoiding the fashions surrounding the practice, and examining whether it is a suitable medium of artistic expression for the creative work which the artist wishes to do. Performance art is a useful artistic discipline, but it also serves, on many occasions, as an escape-valve for artistic practice in times of crisis; and we are not just referring to economic crisis, but also to the crisis of the artist confronted by the system of art, to the crisis in front of the creation of objects, and even to the crisis in the production of meaning.

WHO IS THE WORKSHOP AIMED AT?
Artists, cultural agents and anyone interested in performance art as a mechanism of production in contemporary art.

TEACHER
Joan Morey, licentiate, and DEA, in Fine Arts at the Universitat de Barcelona. In his practice as an artist, he has explored numerous mechanisms of production which take performance art as their starting point. The majority of his projects push the standards of this artistic language to the limit, with one clear intention: «to go full throttle». This allows him to explore other possibilities of performance art, reformulate the methodologies used in each project, and then resolve the gaps which, from the conventional artistic sphere, appear in relation to the production, the management or the exhibition of performance art.

The artist's work may currently be seen in the exhibition PANTALLA DOBLE at ACVic Centre d’Arts Contemporànies.
