Oscar Murillo

Frequencies is a long-term international arts project conceived by artist Oscar Murillo in collaboration with Clara Dublanc. Begun in 2013, the project sends pieces of raw canvas to schools around the globe with the sole requirement that they be affixed to desks for a year and illustrated by students. After that year, Murillo re-collects the canvases. To date, hundreds of students aged primarily 10 to 16 in schools on five continents have participated by drawing, painting, writing, and this creating documents of their social and educational experiences.

Frequencies has been exhibited at the 56th Venice Biennial “All the Worlds Futures” in 2015, Aichi Triennale “Homo Faber: A Rainbow Caravan” in 2016,  the 2016 Hangzhou Triennial of Fiber Art, as well as part of Oscar Murillo’s shows in Haus Der Kunst (2017), Munich; the Museum of Contemporary Art in Cleveland (2017) and the Pinchuk Arts Centre in Kiev (2017). 

Itinerant Works is managing the production of the project in collaboration with Oscar Murillo and David Zwirner Gallery.
