Framis in Progress. Her pieces and performances reflect on the fear people experience as a result of being alone and cut off from communication. Many of Framis' projects focus on the functional aspects of urban architecture. The new models proposed by the artist are alternative spaces with new forms of interaction.

Framis in Progress is a large retrospective exhibition by Dutch-Spanish artist Alicia Framis (1967, Barcelona). Framis gained international recognition for performances and projects in public spaces that focus on human existence and social relationships. Her projects are interdisciplinary and intersect with fashion, architecture and design. All her works are focused on the analysis of human existence and social relationships, seeking to create unexpected encounters and experiences with the viewer through formal configurations accessible to the public, largely interactive and with high quality aesthetics.
For the exhibition at MUSAC it has been designed several interactive exhibition sections that make visible the debate on social issues. Framis has developed since twenty years ago. Thus, the exhibition at MUSAC highlights the great range of her work over the last 2 decades years. Framis in Progres is structured around three themes in which interaction with the public is key: Social Architecture, Fashions and Demonstrations and Whishing Walls.

The work of Alicia Framis is infused with markedly social overtones and her pieces and performances reflect on the fear people experience as a result of being alone and cut off from communication. Many of Framis’ projects focus on the functional aspects of urban architecture and explore the limits defined by that architecture in relation to the individual. The new architectural models proposed by the artist are alternative spaces with new forms of interaction in which the concept of social participation takes on special importance, and where everyday actions can be performed with a less dehumanised attitude.
