This week we launched a new category - Modernism is Crap - from our first Ello Curator in Residence, Cha Blasco. Cha is a composer and sound designer based in Sweden. His latest album, Urania, just dropped. You can check it out here.
As curator, I try that the relationship between the works are right in the intermediate space between the very obvious and very stilted, generating a direct subtle connection. I generally mix all kind of art, design and disciplines from all times and cultures. I like to explore a new visual language where is not just about the works in itself rather than the existing communication between them. I like to test the viewer and push their boundaries about the understanding of what is art or not.
