In the context of the BAR module: Curating the space / Space for curating – the new flexible pedagogical format of the BAR project – we are pleased to invite you to the BAR curator talk, a public conversation between Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy, Carles Guerra, Latitudes, Michy Marxuach and the BAR module participants.
The first BAR module: Curating the space / Space for curating highlights the search for a territory of curatorial expression. The program will focus on providing a context for an intensive professional exchange on this crucial issue in curatorial work today. Seeking to create an intimate and informal learning environment, a group of participants will meet for a week with international guest curators to think, question and develop ideas about curatorial practice. Following the modus operandi of BAR project, hospitality will be at the core of the program, creating an environment where the transmission of knowledge occurs from experience, conversation and action.
The selected participants are: Alejandra Avilés, Cristina Albertini, Garazi Ansa, Francesca Boenzi, Pauline Bordaneil, Alba Folgado, Gris Garcia, Valentina Lacinio and Helena Perez.
Resident writer: Maja Ćirić.
The program begins with The walking tour, a walking tour of the city of Barcelona led by BAR project made up of a selection of guided visits to commercial, institutional and independent spaces, as well as personalized meetings with different local professionals. The following days of the program take place at Fabra i Coats – Barcelona Creation Factory. Based on daily talks and conversations led by Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy (Curator of the Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Collection, New York), Chus Martínez (Director of the FHNW Art Institute, Basel) and Michy Marxuach (Co-founder of Beta- Local, San Juan, Puerto Rico), all participants will have the opportunity to present their ideas and points of view on the subject. The last day at Fabra i Coats there was a public talk between the invited curators together with Carles Guerra (director of the Tàpies Foundation) and Latitudes (Max Andrews and Mariana Cánepa Luna, independent curators, Barcelona) and the participants, followed by a cocktail. The weekend is dedicated to studio visits with artists from the city.
BAR module: Curating the space / Space for curating is generously hosted by Fabra i Coats – Barcelona Creation Factory.
