“…Ten-Diez welcomes everyone, no matter how inexperienced, and provides a supportive network that encourages all members to pursue their passions.”
The current Ten Diez exhibition will run in the FIT – Factoría de Innovación Turística in the Adeje CDTCA complex until Friday December 5th.
The exhibition brings together a collections of locally based (though not necessarily born) artists in the third edition of the show, with the support of the Adeje council, and is considered one of the best platforms for showcasing up-and-coming talent in the field of fine art, sculpture, photography etc, as well as a space for established artists.
In the words of the organisers, “TEN-DIEZ brings together some of the region’s most exciting artistic talent, giving both complete beginners and more experienced artists a platform to showcase their work. In contrast with stereotypical elitist, closed circles of artists that are impossible to get into, Ten-Diez welcomes everyone, no matter how inexperienced, and provides a supportive network that encourages all members to pursue their passions”.
The councillor with responsibility for Culture, Youth and Sport, Adolfo Alonso Ferrera, says it “is a fascinating space which brings together a range of artistic disciplines of excellent quality. Through previous editions we have been able to discover the wealth of artistic talent in Tenerife while also demonstrating how Adeje is becoming a reference point for the wider international artistic community.” The councillor was also keen to stress the welcome given to those showing for the first time,. “We welcome everyone to this event, regardless of past experience, as we fully understand that art, in whatever manifestation, can be adapted from many different points of view”.
During the inaugural session of the exhibition the organisers presented an award to the ‘best artist’ voted by his peers, Sergio Díaz, a passionate traveller who tells of his journeys through his photographs. Second placed Carlos Ortega, an interior designer, was also praised for his personal pieces.
During the week-long exhibition there are also a series of parallel workshops and art-based debates, master classes and round-table discussions. To end the week, at 8pm there will be a ceremony to name the winner in the FIT CANARIAS/TENERIFE NO LIMITS, photography competition, with the winner taking home a GoPro4 Black camera.
