Bartolomé Ferrando (b. 1951, Valencia) is a performer and visual poet. His works start as poetic images in the realm of visual poetry, object poetry, object book, sound poetry, installation and performance. From poetry, he builds structures which he uses to enter areas of music, plastic art and action.

Ferrando is working currently in Valencia. While Spain is one of the worst affected countries by the COVID-19 virus, the artist finds his solace in his studio, from where he sends photos for the project.

Artists Respond project was started by the Institute for the Research of the Avant-Garde and the Marinko Sudac Collection. Addressing the current global pandemic, the project aims to virtually present the thoughts and attitudes of neo-avant-garde artists, their energy and the message they have for the present moment. This is the moment in which the world as we know it is on hold and the moment in which we need optimism and solidarity more than ever. We wish for the public to welcome the creative energy of these artists - artists who are ready to point out the state of things, to respond with art and creativity, as they have done in all difficult times in the past.
