MIGUEL AMADO is the winner of the first edition of ADN PLATFORM’s CURATORIAL CHALLENGE with his project THE REBEL CITY. The exhibition addresses episodes of protest against financial capitalism. The featured works trace a contemporary narrative encapsulated by the 1999 events in Seattle, pointing to some precedents elsewhere and considering recent movements such as Occupy (Wall Street in New York) and 15-M (Puerta del Sol in Madrid). Artists are seen as agents of change who encapsulate the lived experience of the “rebel city” across the world.
