    • Valerio Del Baglivo: FORMS OF ECLIPSE, Lee Lozano

      Saturday May 27th, 8.30pm
      Calle València 72, 4th-3rd, Barcelona

      Curated by Valerio Del Baglivo
      With Equipo Palomar, Anna Dot, Laia Estruch, Supterranis

      Forms of Eclipse are a series of events curated by Valerio Del Baglivo, evoking the work of artists who have decided to temporarily or permanently wi­thdraw from the art-system, converting this decision into a single art piece or even into a continued and well-organized art-practi­ce. In the respect of these decisions and with the intent of publicly remembering them, Forms of Eclipse simply evokes these acts proposing a series of talks to be held on the exact dates of these art-withdrawals. What might we learn from these artists’ deployment of a work as a practice of withdrawal? How do these acts of withdrawing offer us means affecting an undoing of the regime of art production? And how does the practice of withdrawal may let the artist’s body survive or sublimate? These and other questions are at the base of Forms of Eclipse.

      At the conclusion of his residency at BAR Project, curator Valerio Del Baglivo proposes to remember the work of artist Lee Lozano. In 1967 Lee Lozano started making instruction pieces that influenced drastically her behaviour within the artworld and gradually drove her to not speak with women anymore and later to quit the artworld. These pieces, together with comments and personal considerations, are transcribed on her famous notebooks whose pages are occasionally sent to friends, as a form of newsletter. At the centre of her work are themes like the patriarchal hierarchy of the artworld, women sexuality and identity, process and duration.

      On May 27, at a distance of 48 years from Dialogue Piece (a key work by Lee Lozano for which she invited famous artists to engage in one-to-one conversations at her studio), a group of art practitioners will celebrate the practice of the American artist and the salient decisions that gradually led her to abandon the artworld. Playing homage to Lozano’s intention to create occasion for interpersonal exchanges, curator Valerio Del Baglivo will engage the audience in one-to-one conversations discussing the practice of Lozano. At the same time artists Anna Dot, Equipo Palomar, Laia Estruch Mata and collective Supterranis will contribute with actions and performances exploring notions such as disappearing, language articulation and redundancy, forms of personal transformation.


      Introduction & welcoming by Valerio Del Baglivo, BAR Project curator in residency.

      Equipo Palomar
      In line with other art-pieces aimed at remembering marginal figures, El Equipo Palomar will conduct a series of short readings of Lee Lozano famous notebook instruction pieces. The reading will be intermixed with other artists’ pieces and accompanied by little interventions with the purpose of creating a rhythmical and progressive modification of the space.  

      Laia Estruch Mata
      Sharing publicly a personal negative anecdote, Laia Estruch plays homage to Lee Lozano and her belief of pursuing personal and public transformation, with a new voice performance. Emphasizing once again the relationship (very dear to Lee Lozano as well) between text and spoken language, the piece discusses feelings of unpleasantness, uncomfortability, shame and frustration within institutional framework.

      Equipo Palomar

      Anna Dot
      With the help of the audience, Anna Dot will attempt to produce a “white noise”: literally a noise made up of all possible sounds and in which all acoustic signals are indistinguishable from each other. Perhaps suggesting a way to disappear into an inarticulate sound and in sync within each other, the piece explores language redundancy and polyphonic relations.

      Equipo Palomar

      Along the night, Barcelona based collective Supterranis will engage the audience through informal conversations on how to let one’s identity disappear into a collective entity, fake biographism, fictional artists and art-production interruptions, with their piece titled Talk Together Piece: books, comics, music and videos will be display to trigger conversations.

      At the same time, curator Valerio Del Baglivo will occupy a room engaging the audience in one-to-one reading and conversations about Lee Lozano notebooks instruction pieces.

      Food and drinks will be provided.

      Equipo Palomar
      El Palomar is a diversified co-authoring project. Directed by Equipo Palomar (a collective composed of Mariokissme and R. Marcos Mota), it always looks for collaboration with other artists and cultural agents who work from the experience of dissidence in terms of identity and sexuality. To gradually create a cross-border community, we work towards visibility and shared learning, claiming the place that belongs to us in the diversity of democratic representation and the right to one’s own life.
      Highlighting some of their latest solo projects, No es homosexual simplemente el homófilo sino el cegado por el falo perdido (La Capella, 2016), Hedonismo crítico (Fundació Joan Miró, 2016), Fons armari i figura per Ismael Smith (Museu Nacional/Sala d’Art Jove, 2015), or collective on Centro Párraga (2016), Es Baluard (2017), SOS 4.8 (2014), Biblioteca MNCARS (2016), galeria Àngels Barcelona (2015).

      Laia Estruch
      Born and based in Barcelona, her work is mostly performance-based. Her artistic proposals feature voice and word as a space of experimentation.

      Anna Dot
      Anna Dot is artist and researcher in the Translation, Interpreting and Applied Languages Department ​​at the University of Vic. Her artistic practice is presented as a methodology to investigate issues related to cognitive processes and the transmission of power through language. Currently, writing and performance are fundamental elements of her work processes, as can be seen in her most recent projects Until I am no longer able to stand (La Capella, Barcelona, ​​2016) and S’amagaven darrere els arbres ( Walter Benjamin Route, Portbou, 2016).

      Supterranis is a non defined collective that allows a diverse group of artists and curators to work together and experiment around art formats and process; theory, production, education, curating, etc. Based in Barcelona, the most know project from Supterranis has been the three editions of Festival Plaga: artistic proposals in non artistic or legitimated places.
      Supterranis took part of the exhibition Co-habitar entre at Fabra i Coats 2016, also hosting a serie of talks and interventions around the ideas of production, emotions and collaboration at the same institution; Fabra i Coats. In 2014 Supterranis collaborated with a performatic lecture at El temps invertit, exhibition curated by Irina Mutt, Can Felipa Arts Visuals 2014.

    • BAR International Symposium*: “Making Public Program”

      20-24 March 2017

      With: Eva Rowson (Showroom, London), Pablo Martínez (MACBA, Barcelona), Santiago Villanueva (Mamba, Buenos Aires), Leire Vergara (Bulegoa, Bilbao), Helmut Batista (Capacete, Rio de Janeiro), Elise Lammer (SALTS, Basel), Daniel Blanga-Gubbay (Aleppo, Brussels), Karima Boudou (Appartement22, Rabat), Equipo Palomar (artists, Barcelona), Josep Maynou (artist, Berlin), Florencia Portacarrero (curator, Lima), Kroot Juurak & Alex Bailey (performers, Wien), BAR TOOLests (Julia Gorostidi, Tali Serruya, Enea Cabanes, Alejandra Avilés, Ibai Hernandorena) & BAR spring residents: Valerio Del Baglivo (curator, Rome), Daisuke Kosugi & Ina Hagen (artists & founders of Louise Dany artist run space, Oslo).

      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.

      At the center of BAR project’s curatorial effort the Public Program operates as a transversal yet autonomous space responding to concerns about its own practice: delve into the public realm today; give room to gathering, discussion and reflection spaces; promote a dialogue with the immediate context and beyond it. BAR project stands for a public program to take place in spaces of diverse nature, aiming to provoke unexpected relationships and challenge audiences. In this regard, the different activities BAR project has organised to date have happened in galleries, non-profits, institutions, along with bars, car garages, libraries or the public space.

      The BAR International Symposium “Making Public Program” consists in an intensive week of working groups, roundtables, actions, My studio visit, Walking tour, performances and drinks to celebrate BAR project 2013-2017 Public Program and reflect on the past, present and future of what public programing means. A number of guest practitioners will spend a whole week in Barcelona in order to discuss and perform together on the topic; the output of that brainwork will be made public and opened to the participants of the symposium and to a larger public through the various activities building the symposium.  

      The symposium program will be articulated as follows:

      Monday to Wednesday mornings will be devoted to closed working sessions on “Making Public Program” among guest speakers and BAR team at Fabra i Coats Art Factory. In parallel to this, the registered participants will take part in The Walking Tour, comprising visits to galleries, independent spaces and institutions in and around the city of Barcelona. In the afternoon round tables lead by one of the guests will offer the participants a disclosed space for reflection and discussion. Monday evening will be liven up by the legendary BAR Welcome vermouth, offered at mitico Armando´s. Thursday morning will start with My Studio Visit. The city as studio, in which a local artist is commissioned to give a visit to a special location in Barcelona in order to speak about his/her practice through the city and out of the common studio space. On this occasion artistic collective Equipo Palomar invites us to Estruch 24-26, 3° 1ª, an action focusing on the figure of Alberto Cardin, an outstanding writer, anthropologist and LGBT activist, emphasizing his early death in 1992 due to AIDS, the relationship between the Spanish political transition and the disease, as well as the city’s tourist-urbanistic speculation. The day will continue at Tàpies Foundation. In the early afternoon Kroot Juurak & Alex Bailey will develop their Workshop for Humans (informative workshop to learn the tricks and tips of Performance for pets previously carried out in private home), later on most of the guest speakers will contribute to a fourth and final round table, open to the general public this time. The culmination of the day will come with the BAR Party, celebration of BAR project fifth birthday, held at the Tapies Foundation rooftop with a live show by Josep Maynou as guest artist.

      Along the four days, the participants of BAR TOOL#0 training program will ‘rehearse’ on public appearance in different places and afterwork moments.

      Friday will be the time to carry out studio visits with local artists.
