  • Turbulence

    19.07.2018 // 21.10.2018

    CAIXAFORUM BARCELONA

    Starting with the state of sudden unrest created by turbulence, this exhibition explores the role of contemporary art in the face of the conflicts and instabilities that characterise our globalised world.

  • A Certain Darkness

    19.06.2018 // 05.01.2019

    CAIXAFORUM BARCELONA

    One morning in August 1911, the Mona Lisa was stolen from the Louvre without anyone noticing. The painting remained missing for two years. However, far from deterring visitors, this absence had the opposite effect: crowds flocked to the museum to see the empty space on the wall.

    10.05.2018 // 30.09.2018

  • Beneath the Arm: Between the Palm of the Hand and the Armpit

    31.01.2018 // 20.05.2018

    CAIXAFORUM BARCELONA

    Around four years ago, artist Irene Grau told me that the dimensions of her Color Fields — the monochrome boards that she transported and photographed amidst nature — had two limitations: the length of the load of her van and the maximum width she was able to carry under her arm, between the palm of her hand and her armpit. Let’s imagine for a moment that the size of many of the landscapes created in a specific historical period was determined only by a limitation contained in the title of this project.

  • H(a)unting Images: Anatomy of a Shot

    06.10.2017 // 07.01.2018

    CAIXAFORUM BARCELONA

    The invention proudly announced by French physiologist Étienne-Jules Marey in 1882 followed in the same line as other chronophotographic devices from the late 19th century. Designed to analyse the different phases of moving bodies, these devices expanded the possible ways of representing reality and extended the scope of sight beyond the range of the human eye.

     

  • Tony Oursler
    L7-L5. Imponderable

    27.05.2017 // 03.09.2017

    CAIXAFORUM BARCELONA

    This exhibition brings together two works, separated by thirty years, created by pioneer video artist Tony Oursler. Both works experiment with illusionistic visual effects and explore supernatural beliefs.

  • Iconoclastic gestures,
    heterodox images

    05.04.2017 // 23.07.2017

    CAIXAFORUM LLEIDA

    Art as a provocation and agent for change, in the second show in the Comisart: New Perspectives on the ”la Caixa” Collection programme run by the ”la Caixa” Foundation to offer emerging curators the opportunity to mount an exhibition of their own.

  • Look at Me!
    Portraits and other Fictions in the ”la Caixa” Collection of Contemporary Art

    04.03.2017 // 04.06.2017

    CAIXAFORUM SEVILLA

  • Exercises for Sowing Lightning

    09.02.2017 // 01.05.2017

    CAIXAFORUM BARCELONA

    This proposal by Nicolás Paris takes apart the traditional model of art exhibition and creates a laboratory conceived to encourage us to observe, question and enter into dialogue. The artist considers the exhibition as an intermediate point in a research process, and therefore sees it as a place in which to continue experimenting, creating and transforming ideas collectively.
