Alberto Flores

Alberto Flores is a Spanish curator and arts administrator whose main interest is in conceptual art, Fluxus and sound art. Since 2007 he is assistant curator at the Museo Vostell Malpartida in Cáceres Spain. While his doctoral dissertation analyses the installations and sound installations produced from 1976 to 2003 by conceptual artist Concha Jerez (one of the earliest practitioners of installation art in Spain), the curated exhibition “Noises, Silences and Scathing Transgression” (La Casa Encendida, Madrid, 2007) established parallels between the Fluxus attitude and a number of contemporary musical genres ranging from Grindcore to Japanoise. These sort of connections between sound and the visual arts, high and low culture, has also shaped the curatorship of events like Ciclo de Creación Electrónica (medieval city of Cáceres, 2008-10) or Ciclo de Música Contemporánea, an international sound art event curated with the Museo Vostell Malpartida team from 2007 onwards. Alberto will be will be researching Irish sound art and field recordings in order to promote Irish experimental music at this upcoming event.
