THE ART OF KNOWLEDGE
DISCOVER THE POWER OF KNOWLEDGE
Whether you are a collector, an artist, an art student, a dealer, a curator or an institution, I can help you with my experience and knowledge to navigate the complexities of the art world and set you on the path to achieve the acknowledgement you deserve.
KNOWLEDGE TO HELP YOU PROGRESS
WHO AM I
A LIFE DEDICATED TO ART
For 20 years I have been performing successfully as a conference speaker, consultant, coach, arts writer, curator and head of visual arts. My motto is that we achieve acknowledgement through knowledge. I hold an international PhD from the University of Salamanca (USAL) with a residency at the Alvar Aalto University of Helsinki.
WHAT ART PROFESSIONALS SAY
Paco Barragán lectured about art and the market at Nebrija University bringing relevant international working-experience to our MA Students preparing themselves for careers in Creative Industries. His classes are the perfect mix of instruction and entertainment and are full of exciting and relevant insights into the ins and outs of the Art World!
Paco Barragán is one of the most brilliant authors with whom I have worked. He is intelligent, very demanding with himself, proactive and dissident by nature. His texts are based on exhaustive and rigorous research of diverse documentary sources. Barragán likes to go in depth, investigate and question the established canons to generate new knowledge. Invariably, his texts produce interest and vivid discussions.
I would like to underline three characteristics that describe perfectly Paco Barragán’s professional profile: 1) his energy and passion for his work make him very effective in the realization of his projects; 2) his critical analysis enable him to put into practice original proposals which stand out among the rest; and 3) he is a very self-demanding professional always in search of perfection and being up at the front-line of innovation.
