Leira is a physical space with digital extensions located in Lugo, Galicia. A meeting place to explore the intersections between research, artistic creation and contemporary cultural production.
We seek to cultivate imaginaries of the present and the future around the cultural and territorial reality of which we are a part. We claim the periphery as a prolific place for the emergence of new views, practices and voices not captured by centrality frameworks. We want to work with other times that transcend the imperatives of speed and visibility, by offering places for production, reflection and critical/speculative thought through different tools, practices and knowledge.
Leira uses Asfen for the titles of its identity and its logo. For social media graphics, it’s paired with an unidentified sans [edit: it’s Armand Grotesk, see comments] used in all caps. On the website, the supporting sans is Nitti Grotesk. The project was founded by Antonio Giráldez López and Laura Tabarés, who might also be responsible for the design.
