Josie McCoy’s Visiones de Anhelo show, at Galeria Espacio, Valencia

If you’re in Valencia this weekend, you could pop along to see Josie McCoy’ in Visiones de Anhelo, at Galeria Espacio, which runs from Saturday, October 24 to Thursday, November 12.

Curated by Josie herself along with Lotte Maia Dinse, nine artists consider commonly accepted notions of desire through transforming commonplace or familiar everyday objects into something concerned with aspiration.

“Often using the same aesthetic language as the popular culture they are appropriating, the works re-evaluate the validity of socially constructed ideals,” says the blurb.

The artists are John Cake & Darren Neave, Russell Chater,  Calum F Kerr, Josie McCoy, Heather Joy Riggs, Rose Smith, Lex Thomas and Mimei Thompson.

Visiones de Anhelo is at Galeria Espacio, Calle Aparisi y Guijarro 7b, 46003 Valencia,  from Saturday, October 24 to Thursday, November 12. Gallery hours: Monday to Friday 4-9pm or by appointment. Contact more information.
