BAR project is a curator-run organization supporting local and international artists and curators and promoting trans-disciplinary dialogue, hospitality, collaboration and exchange.
Drinking while walking while hosting while thinking while making together is the leitmotiv of BAR project, who takes its name from the popular and social gathering place in south European culture in order to recontextualize it, and be able to work and practice (reflection-in-action) in a flexible, informal and critical way. This working condition and status goes beyond the bar extending curatorial practice into working on public realm and takes the city of Barcelona as a public project space.
Through a public program of international residencies, screening programs, pedagogical formats (BAR TOOL and BAR module), encounters and collaborations related to a leading topic, BAR’s curatorial practice aims to highlight relevant subjects in the current political, social and economic paradigm.
BAR project is initiated in 2013 by Andrea Rodríguez Novoa, Veronica Valentini and Juan Canela.
