CaixaForum Barcelona

Comisart is a new Social Projects "la Caixa" programme aimed at developing professional curatorial skills in Spain and offering new perspectives on the "la Caixa" Collection of Contemporary Art.

This biennial programme provides three grants in each call for applications to carry out three consecutive exhibitions at CaixaForum Barcelona. The first show in the series, Art Fiction, curated by Jaime González Cela and Manuela Pedrón Nicolau, explores the poetic potential of contemporary art as a science fiction space.

The exhibition brings together a selection of pieces that stand out for their ability to evoke unknown dimensions. Works by Aernout Mik, Andreas Slominski, Ante Timmermans, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Jorge Barbi, Juan Ugalde, Rogelio López Cuenca and Thomas Schütte are placed in relation to pieces by Elena Alonso and Nicolás Combarro, two emerging young artists.
