Spain’s major new arts centre Centro Botín opens, designed by Shard architect Renzo Piano

Centro-boti%cc%81n-bele%cc%81n-de-benito

Spain’s major new contemporary arts centre, Centro Botín, designed by The Shard’s architect Renzo Piano, has opened in Santander. Costing around $106m and opening with an exhibition dedicated to artist Carsten Höller, the new cultural landmark is also Piano’s first building in Spain.

The “winged” 10,300 square metre structure takes the form of a bisected capsule, wrapped in 270,000 ceramic discs that “reflect the changing colours of sea and sky”. It also has floor-to-ceiling glass overlooking the waterfront, on a site formerly used as a ferry port car park.

Carsten Höller’s opening show will feature new works alongside well-known interactive installations including Elevator Bed. Visitors will be able to book a night in Elevator Bed, which is “equipped with all the comforts of a luxury hotel room,” where they will experience the rest of the exhibition as the bed rotates and goes up and down, rising up to 3.5 metres above the ground.

The artist’s new piece commissioned by Fundación Botín is a site-specific light installation called 7.8Hz, “active from sunset to sunrise” in the centre’s gardens. A sculpture by Cristina Iglesias will also be installed in the gardens.

Centro Botín also opens with a show on Francisco de Goya, the latter of which will feature 80 drawings by the Spanish artist selected from the Museo del Prado collection. The exhibition is titled Agility and Audacity. Goya drawings.

List Features / Miscellaneous “Dance exists when we run out of things to say”: choreographer Holly Blakey on her life and practice

“I try to work on instinct as much as possible,” choreographer Holly Blakey admits. “I’m not indulging myself too much: I try not to overthink it. And, you know, I’ll wake up tomorrow and change it all probably.” Perched halfway up the stone staircase in the converted church-cum-community arts centre Islington Arts Factory, Holly is stealing time from two days of rehearsals which will form the backbone of her performance Abide at Convergence, a five day-long art, music and tech festival in venues across London. As bass rolls down the stairs towards us, Holly stands up. I follow her through the studio door towards chaos. Musicians Darkstar and Gwilym Gold skulk in the corner on laptops while stylist Hannah Hopkins squeezes half-naked dancers into ornate net dresses designed by Westminster graduate Philip Luu. Holly stands in the middle, the room’s conductor, directing energy wherever it is needed most.
