Punto y Raya and CeTA have joined forces to produce the seventh edition of the benchmark event for Abstract Art in Motion. Based in Barcelona, MAD is a non-profit association devoted to cultural engineering through the development of projects involving Art, Science and Technology. Based in Wroclaw, Poland, CeTA (Audiovisual Technology Center) is an innovative cultural facility working in the field of new visual technologies, primarily for use in cinematography.
This year's statuettes were created by Polish architect and designer Oskar Zięta. A stylised representation of the Iglica monument in Wroclaw, as well as a gorgeous homage to various Star Wars spaceships (with echoes of V-Wing, Naboo and TIE starfighters). The awards were crafted by welding together pieces of sheeting and inflating them with water through a vent.
Punto y Raya Festival arrives in Poland! The sixth edition of "the most abstract festival in the world" took place from October 25th-28th 2018 in Wroclaw, offering its traditional meeting point for artists and lovers of the best Abstract Art in Motion.
On this occasion, we were hosted and coproduced by CeTA (Audiovisual Technology Center), heir of the exquisite legacy of the Wrocław Feature Film Studio (1954-2011), and an innovative production and post-production centre. Complementary installations and workshops for all audiences were held at the Four Domes Pavilion (Museum of Contemporary Art), and Barbara, right at the heart of the city.
We celebrated four intensive and wonderful days of pure Form, Colour, Motion and Soundhosted by this lovely city, whose history dates back over thousand years and has been dubbed Best European Destination in 2018.
CeTA (Audiovisual Technology Center), is an innovative cultural facility working in the field of new visual technologies, primarily for use in cinematography. Heir of the exquisite legacy of the Wrocław Feature Film Studio (1954-2011), it houses sound stages, chemical labs, scenography workshops, actors’ dressing-rooms, props and costumes. Around 500 films were made in the Wrocław studio, many of which took a permanent place in the history of Polish cinema.
With 250 seats (accommodating +350 standing spectators), here we'll be hosting our Competition & Guest Screenings, as well as the live PyRformances.
This gorgeous screening room will be the home to our Academy Programme. This room has a special place in history: here, eminent Polish directors like Wojciech Jerzy Has, Stanisław Lenartowicz and Sylwester Chęciński sat to watch the first versions of their films.
This top-notch film studio, equipped with a 330 sq m greenbox studio, bluebox studio with system motion control, a sound studio, computer labs and much more, will lend us its auditorium for IP Group's installation Transforma.
The Four Domes Pavilion, the seat of the new branch of the National Museum in Wrocław, was built in 1912. In 1953 it became part of the Film Studios in Wrocław, and the exhibition rooms were repurposed to serve this new function, destroying the original layout. After the Film Studios’ prolonged decline in the 1990s, the Four Domes Pavilion was designated for the contemporary art collection of the National Museum in 2009. The overhaul to restore the building to its original function was completed in 2013-2015.
This wonderful building will house Punto y RayaInstallations & workshops for all audiences during the festival.
