Galeria Carles Taché

Evru

Barcelona, 1946
One of the first digital artists in Spain. In 1968, the artist Albert Porta transformed himself into Zush and later, with the arrival of the new millennium, into Evru. In 1975, a scholarship from the Juan March Foundation allowed him to study holography at M.I.T., Boston. In the 1980s he began to apply digital technology to his work. His practice is based on a concept he has coined himself as PsicoManualDigital. He has exhibited his works in major retrospective shows, including The Art of Today Museum, Beijing (2007), MACBA (2001), or Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (2000). In 1999, he won the Laus Prize for his piece Psicomanualdigital. He has work in the collections of the MoMA and the Guggenheim Museum, New York.
He has collaborated with the Galeria Carles Taché by lending his work Kalina Dafic (1989-1990) for the exhibition Tribute to catalan contamporary art.
