Participants announced of MACBA's “Panorama 21. Notes for an Eye Fire”


Panorama 21: Notes for an Eye Fire
Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA)
Exhibition: 22 October 2021–27 February 2022
Private view: 21 October 2021


With the participation of Ana Domínguez, El Palomar (Mariokissme & R. Marcos Mota), Laia Estruch, Arash Fayez, Antoni Hervàs, Rasmus Nilausen, nyamnyam (Ariadna Rodríguez & Iñaki Álvarez) with Pedro Pineda, Claudia Pagès, Aleix Plademunt, Marria Pratts, Stella Rahola Matutes, Eulàlia Rovira, Ruta de autor (Aymara Arreaza R. & Lorena Bou Linhares), Adrian Schindler, Rosa Tharrats, Gabriel Ventura, and Marc Vives.

MACBA is launching a new series of exhibitions entitled Panorama, with a focus on contemporary art practices in and around Barcelona. With an emphasis on collaborative practices and presenting diverse perspectives, each edition of Panorama will be led by a different curatorial team, composed of a member of the MACBA team together with an independent curator or collective.

Occupying the entire top floor of the Meier Building, the first edition of Panorama, will open with the group exhibition Notes for an Eye Fire, curated by Hiuwai Chu (MACBA) and LatitudesAs the “notes” of the title suggests, this exhibition attempts to jot down, to lay out and to connect without seeking to be in any way definitive.

The group show is not driven by one overarching subject, yet the works on display weave together diverse and interconnected themes that have emerged from the curators’ studio visits and conversations with the artistic community, whether addressing the self-image of the city, notions of reparation and belonging, gender dissidence, or our relationship with non-human life.

Notes for an Eye Fire brings together works that have been specially commissioned for the occasion, along with recent productions—all being shown in Barcelona for the first time. It comprises a wide range of disciplines, including painting, sculpture, works on paper, video installation, performance, photography, and textiles, and is driven by a desire to defend and verify the making of on-site exhibitions as experiences that envelop us as whole sensing bodies in space.

The title, borrowed from a 2020 book of poetry by Gabriel Ventura, conjures up a powerful metaphor that provokes a questioning of the dominance of vision, urging us to explore an expanded definition of seeing that engages our other senses and entails new ways of navigating the world, of remembering and of producing knowledge.

This broader consideration of the sensorial in the exhibition has developed in parallel to an exploration of the conceptual and historical underpinning of the panorama itself. The word panorama was coined in the 18th century to describe vast 360-degree paintings housed in purpose-built cylindrical buildings. Looking out from a raised platform, the public enjoyed a commanding view that was nevertheless a disorientating visual experience. Long before the invention of cinema and the proliferation of screens that now characterises contemporary life for many of us, the panorama was the virtual reality headset of its time and became mass entertainment in Europe at a time when travel had not been possible due to the Napoleonic wars. Barcelona hosted three such panoramas during the Universal Exposition of 1888.

The circular form of the eye takes on a life of its own in the exhibition’s imagination, whether through projects that address theatre or performance, the spatial relationship between stage and auditorium, or the loop as narrative. Such perspectives and scales also encircle how the museum establishes a connection with its neighbourhood, and vice versa, in a time in which we are perhaps all questioning and seeing again what our own place in the world might be. 


PUBLIC PROGRAMMES, WEB and PUBLICATION

The public programming around Notes for an Eye Fire will be a mix of in-person and online activities, from workshops, performances and events in the exhibition galleries to in-person and online conversations between participating artists.

The exhibition will also have an expanded presence on the museum’s website, which will feature a webpage dedicated to each artist with complementary material of varied formats related to their artistic practice and production. The website will be updated with new content throughout the exhibition period.

A publication, designed by Ana Domínguez, will be released in Spring 2022 and will include a conversation between the curators, a text by Gabriel Ventura, and texts about the participating artists, accompanied by reproductions of their work.

Panorama is an exhibition organised and produced by MACBA Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona. Its inaugural edition, “Notes for an Eye Fireis curated by Hiuwai Chu (Head of Exhibitions, MACBA) and Latitudes (Max Andrews and Mariana Cánepa Luna), and coordinated by Berta Cervantes.

Estreno del vídeo “A knot which is not” [Un nus que no ho és] (2020–21) de Eulàlia Rovira

(📷 ↑↓) Eulàlia Rovira, “A knot which is not” [Un nudo que no lo es], 2020–21. Vídeo, 12:21min. Audio en catalán. Cortesía de la artista.

[CAT] 

Avui a les 18h (CET) s'estrena el nou vídeo d'Eulàlia Rovira “A knot which is not” [Un nus que no ho és] (2020-21), al canal Youtube de Fabra i Coats

El vídeo és fruit d’una recerca que l'artista va iniciar amb la inauguració de l’exposició “Coses que les coses diuen” (17 d’octubre de 2020 – 17 de gener de 2021), comissariada per Latitudes a Fabra i Coats: Contemporary Art Centre of Barcelona, i que es fa pública un cop s’ha clausurat i les sales del centre d'art són novament buides. El vídeo podrà veure's en qualsevol moment després de l'emissió en directe.

“Si bé la línia recta és còmplice de l’abaratiment i l’estandardització de molts productes, a on ens du la corba, o encara millor, el nus? Donant girs a les històries de la mateixa fàbrica tèxtil de la Fabra i Coats i als objectes que en sortien, la llengua que ens parla exercita paraules que les mans semblen haver deixat de reconèixer.” –  Eulàlia Rovira


[ES] 

Hoy a las 18h (CET) se estrena el nuevo vídeo de Eulàlia Rovira “A knot which is not” [Un nudo que no lo es] (2020-21), en el canal Youtube de Fabra i Coats.

El vídeo es fruto de una investigación que la artista inició con la inauguración de “Cosas que las cosas dicen” (17 de octubre de 2020–17 de enero de 2021), la exposición comisariada por Latitudes en Fabra i Coats: Centre d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona, y que se hace pública una vez ha finalizado y las salas expositivas están nuevamente vacías. El vídeo podrá verse en cualquier momento después de la emisión en directo. 

“Si bien la línea recta es cómplice del abaratamiento y la estandaritzación de muchos productos, ¿adónde nos lleva la curva, o aún mejor, el nudo? Dando giros a las historias de la propia fábrica textil de la Fabra i Coats y a los objetos que de ella salían, la lengua que nos habla ejercita palabras que las manos parecen haber dejado de reconocer.” – Eulàlia Rovira


[UK] 

Today at 6pm (CET) Eulàlia Rovira's new video “A Knot which is Not” [Un nudo que no lo es] (2020-21) is premiered on the YouTube channel of Fabra i Coats.

“A Knot which is Not” is the result of Rovira's research that began with the opening of “Things Things Say” (17 October 2020–17 January 2021), curated by Latitudes at Fabra i Coats: Contemporary Art Centre of Barcelona, and made public once the exhibition finished and the art centre galleries are empty once again. The video will be available for viewing at any time after the live broadcast. 

“Whilst the straight line is complicit in the price decrease and standardisation of many products, where does the curve, or better still, the knot, lead us? Putting a new spin on the stories of the Fabra i Coats textile factory and the objects found there, the language they speak to us uses words that our hands seem to have stopped recognising.” – Eulàlia Rovira

“Panorama 21: Notes For An Eye Fire”
22 October 2021–27 February 2022
Opening: 21 October 2021

Panorama 21: Notes For An Eye Fire” is a project that aims to reaffirm the commitment of the Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA) to the vitality of local production, by supporting site-specific creation and reconsidering what it can offer – and how it can be best used – through a new generation of artists and audiences. Conceived as a long-term commitment by the museum to support local practices, this is an initiative that aspires to make an enduring contribution to the resilience of Barcelona’s cultural ecosystem.

Panorama 21: Notes For An Eye Fire”, which takes its title from the third book of poems by Gabriel Ventura (“Apunts per a un incendi dels ulls”, Documents Documenta, 2020), will be co-curated by Hiuwai Chu (Curator, MACBA) together with Latitudes, the curatorial duo formed in 2005 by Max Andrews and Mariana Cánepa Luna. This type of collaborative work aims to widen institutional practices and bring independent perspectives, through a scheme that it is hoped will be maintained in the future. 

Occupying the entire second floor of MACBA’s Meier Building, it will consist of a group exhibition featuring a number of newly realised projects alongside recently produced works. Moreover, Hiuwai Chu and Latitudes conceive this inaugural edition as a curatorial, editorial and communication channel where in-venue displays encompass a wider spectrum of online programming, publishing, streaming and engagement with MACBA’s users beyond the Museum walls. 

Borrowing from the practices of an increasingly socially engaged generation of artists, “Panorama 21: Notes For An Eye Fire” is not guided by a top-down thematic focus. Instead, it is growing in a cumulative and responsive way from a ground-up perspective on Barcelona, the region and its imaginary. It aspires to amplify the voices of artists and cultural producers that are working in unprecedentedly challenging times.

The project will draw from the panoramic notion of a wide view seen from a fixed point, as well as the innovation that was the origin of the word itself – a neologism coined by the Irish artist Robert Barker from the Greek pan (all), and horama (view) to describe his paintings of Edinburgh, Scotland, at the end of the eighteenth century. Long before the invention of cinema and the proliferation of screens that now characterise contemporary life for many of us, panoramas offered one of the most surprising and popular visual spectacles. 

A panorama was an immersive combination of painting, theatre and architecture. A vast 360° depiction of a city, landscape or battle scene that was presented in a purpose-built circular building. Viewers entered through a tunnel and emerged onto a platform at the centre of the structure and into a startling wrap-around experience. Panoramas could offer a vicarious form of travel. The first such presentation opened to the public in London in 1791, yet the invention really took off in Europe during the following two decades when international travel was severely restricted due to the Napoleonic Wars. Barcelona’s 1888 Universal Exposition presented no less than three panoramas in the city, representing views of the fabled peaks of Montserrat, the Siege of Plevna and the Battle of Waterloo. 

Resonating with the trans-disciplinarity of these display devices, and their desire to inform and captivate, “Panorama 21: Notes For An Eye Fire” nevertheless turns the page on their seamless vista of past conflicts and decisive victories, to imagine instead a structure for supporting a fertile and diverse landscape of many complex artistic positions of the present.

Exhibition ‘Things Things Say’, Fabra i Coats: Contemporary Art Center of Barcelona, 17 October 2020–17 January 2021



The group show ‘Things Things Say’ (Coses que les coses diuen) and the solo exhibition ‘Tone Tongue Mouth’ (‘to llengua boca’) by Dutch artist Wendelien van Oldenborgh open concurrently at Fabra i Coats: Centre d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona on Saturday 17 October 2020 from 12 pm.

Things Things Say
Fabra i Coats: Centre d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona
17 October 2020 – 17 January 2021
Curated by Latitudes


An exhibition with works by Adrià Julià (1974, lives in Barcelona and Bergen), Annette Kelm (1975, lives in Berlin), James N. Kienitz Wilkins (1983, lives in New York), Sarah Ortmeyer (1980, lives in Vienna), Eulàlia Rovira (1985, lives in Barcelona), Francesc Serra i Dimas (1877–1967, Barcelona), Stuart Whipps (1979, lives in Birmingham), Haegue Yang (1971, lives in Berlin and Seoul), as well as meaningful things from the Friends of Fabra i Coats archive.

Do you trust things to write human history? Do things’ lives matter? Can a pebble destroy an empire if the emperor chokes at dinner? Would the pebble stand accused? Do you really think that if you stare at something long enough, it will reveal its secrets? Have you ever wondered why there is a hole in a donut? Did you ever own a pair of dungarees? Does a desire to write about a small car indicate some fear of its inadequacy? Does popcorn hold firm opinions? Is the key key? Are you familiar with the Luddites? Have you heard the expressions “how long is a piece of string?”, or “exceptional typical”?

The exhibition ‘Things Things Say’ springs from the past of Fabra i Coats as an industrial complex once dedicated to the manufacturing of cotton thread. The factory represented the first merger between a Catalan company and a foreign multinational and the first in Spain to offer its workers paid holidays. The exhibition evokes this novel and curious kind of place, a place comprised of many places and people, vastly different scales, temporalities, and values. Things, and spectres of things, that might at first seem exceptionally normal, apparently obsolete, or inert, each bring often-extraordinary stories or offer telling evidence, temporarily becoming new protagonists in the art centre community.

In the setting of the bygone factory, the works in the exhibition introduce a perspective on how the modern world has been shaped through complex and contentious relationships between humans and the web of life. Taking on the popular XVIII century genre of the ‘it-narrative’ in English literature and the approach of ‘object journalism’ against a background of world history and ecology, ‘Things Things Say’ and the exhibition ‘4.543 billion. The Matter of Matter’ (CAPC musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux, 2017–18) are imagined as a diptych: two folds with the same hinge that tacks back-and-forth between deep time and microhistory, natural history and the history of capitalism.

Actividad: ‘Del Año Miró (1968) al inventario de la donación’. Charla entre Rosa Maria Subirana Torrent y Lola Lasurt
ModeraÁngel Calvo Ulloa
Fecha: 15 de septiembre de 2020, de 19 a 21 h. Incluye una visita guiada a la exposición de 19 a 19.30h
Reserva: Aforo limitado. Imprescindible inscripción previa en lacapella@bcn.cat
Lugar: La Capella (c. Hospital 56, Barcelona)
Streaming en directo a partir de las 19.30h en el canal YouTube de Barcelona Cultura (duración: 1h 16min).

En el marco de la exposición Juego de niños, Lola Lasurt conversa con Rosa Maria Subirana Torrent, conservadora de los Museos de la Ciudad de Barcelona durante los últimos años de dictadura y testigo de primera mano del inicio de la gestión institucional del arte contemporáneo en Cataluña.

Bajo las órdenes del consistorio barcelonés, Subirana inventarió meticulosamente los fondos de las primeras colecciones de arte contemporáneo cedidas a la ciudad y coordinó el Año Miró, en el que se inscribió la organización de la exposición retrospectiva en el recinto del antiguo Hospital de la Santa Creu en 1968, así como otras actividades, entre ellas la colocación de una placa en el pasaje del Crèdit (donde nació Miró en 1893) y el Premio Miró para niños.

Miró donó a la ciudad parte de las obras presentadas en la exposición, que fueron trasladadas al Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya (MNAC) para ser inventariadas y constituir el futuro fondo del CEAC (Centro de Estudios de Arte Contemporáneo), el edificio ideado por Josep Lluís Sert que se inauguró en 1975 en Montjuïc.

Esta actividad es parte del programa de mediación εξέδρα (exedra) dirigido por Jordi Ferreiro para la temporada Barcelona Producció 2019–20 de La CapellaJuego de niños de Lola Lasurt ha sido tutorizado por Latitudes.
