Premios de la 6a edición del Dart Festival de cine documental sobre arte contemporáneo 2022

Gráfica del DART 2022 por COURE.


La programación de la 6a edición del Festival de Cine Documental sobre Arte Contemporáneo 2022 (DART) se ha proyectado en la Sala Phenonena, los cinemes Girona y mañana finaliza en el auditori del MACBA Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona, además de en la plataforma online Filmin donde continúa hasta el 11 de diciembre 2022. 

Dart Festival es el primer festival de cine documental dedicado al arte contemporáneo cuyo principal objetivo es entrelazar la cultura y el conocimiento a través de documentales sobre fotografía, comisariado de arte, pintura, performance, arquitectura, movimientos artísticos y, en general, sobre arte contemporáneo, prestando especial atención a los artistas, sus procesos de creación y las historias que hay detrás de sus trabajos.



Una edición más, Latitudes ha tenido el placer de formar parte del jurado del festival junto al crítico de cine Quim Casas y el periodista cultural Ianko López, quienes han decidido premiar a los siguientes documentales:

Premio Laie DART 2022 a la Mejor Dirección: “J’ai retrouvé Christian B.” (Francia, 2020, 87 min.) dirigida por Alain Fleischer. El documental recorre la relación de estos dos creadores contemporáneos, el artista Christian Boltanski y el cineasta Alain Fleischer, que compartieron amistad a lo largo de medio siglo. A través de un nutrido material documental que empieza en 1969 en blanco y negro y en 16mm, el film recorre la vida y obra de Boltanski desde su primera exposición en 1984 en el Centro Pompidou, hasta su tercera y última monográfica en el mismo museo en el 2019, dos años antes de su fallecimiento.

Poster del documental “The Melt Goes On Forever: The Art and Times of David Hammons”.


Premio Laie DART 2022 de la Crítica: “The Melt Goes On Forever: The Art and Times of David Hammons” (EEUU, 2021, 101 min.) que se proyecta mañana en el Auditori del MACBA – ver teaser. Dirigida por el periodista cultural Judd Tully y el cineasta Harold Crooks, el documental se centra en la escurridiza figura del artista afroamericano David Hammons, cuya práctica artística se extiende a lo largo de seis décadas poniendo en primer plano una crítica social en los Estados Unidos. Rodada a lo largo de 9 años, el documental registra el testimonio de los artistas Lorna Simpson y Fred Wilson, el historiador Robert Farris Thompson, los curadores Kellie Jones, Franklin Sirmans y Robert Storr y la galerista Dominique Lévy, entre otros, y se acompaña de material de archivo y animaciones realizadas por Tynehsa Foreman.

20th and concluding dispatch of “Incidents (of Travel)” from Barcelona, Spain

📲 TAP, SCROLL, SWIPE and 📖 READ on incidents.kadist.org 


In the twentieth and concluding dispatch of Incidents (of Travel), Latitudes, the curators and editors of the project, are led by Mexican-born, Bilbao-based artist Jorge Satorre in something of a “voyage around our room”. Manifested itself all over the world since 2016 through the perspectives of other invited curators and artists, Incidents (of Travel) now takes place in our own home: Barcelona, latitude 41° 23' 19.64" N.

Satorre’s itinerary follows a route from the north to the south of the city – from Collserola to Montjuïc – tracing wild boars, two mysterious dolmens, and the devil’s hoof prints along the way.

By chance, this episode takes place on September 19, 2022, exactly ten years later to the day of the first tour commissioned for the first phase of Incidents (of Travel), a day we spent with Minerva Cuevas around Mexico City’s city centre on the 27th anniversary of the deadly 1985 earthquake

Episode #20 culminates Latitudes’ collaboration with KADIST, producers of 20 wonderful episodes published online between 2016 and 2022 as part of their online projects. In 2015, KADIST hosted another three tours during Latitudes’ residency at their San Francisco hub. In 2013, Spring Workshop in Hong Kong produced four itineraries within the frame of the long-term multi-part project “Moderation(s)” in partnership with (then known as) Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art in Rotterdam, and in 2012, at the invitation of UNAM’s Casa del Lago, Latitudes commissioned the first five itineraries around Mexico City



The first dispatch launched in April 2016 with an itinerary by curator Yesomi Umolu and artist Harold Mendez from Chicago – a day photographed by Nabiha Khan.


The second dispatch came from Jinja in Uganda, where curator Moses Serubiri invited photographer Mohsen Taha to explore Jinja's Indian architectural legacy and Idi Amin's notorious expulsion of Uganda's Asian minority in 1972.


The third episode took place while curator Yu Ji and poet Xiao Kaiyu hiked on Dong Shan (East Mountain), 130 km west of Shanghai, on a peninsula stretching into Tai Hu lake near the city of Suzhou, China.


The fourth dispatch came from Lisbon, where Galician curator Pedro de Llano visited key locations that marked the life and work of Luisa Cunha.


The fifth episode took place in April 2016, when curator Simon Soon and artist chi too visited the Malaysian North Eastern state of Terengganu, where chi spent some time in 2013, surrounded by “men and women who work(ed) multiple jobs as fishermen, housebuilders, boat builders, farmers, coconut pickers, food producers, and everything else that matters.”


The sixth episode narrates a walking itinerary conducted by curator Marianna Hovhannisyan with Vardan Kilichyan, Gohar Hosyan, and Anaida Verdyan in Yerevan, the capital of Armenia, documenting the transformed, disappeared, or permanently-closed art institutions in the city centre.


The seventh episode comes from Hobart, the capital of Tasmania. It is narrated by curator Camila Marambio, following an itinerary devised by artist Lucy Bleach. They spent the day "encircling the outer limits of human understanding by visiting the histories, both past, and present, of attempts to reach beyond our sensory capacities through governance, technology, and reverie", and ended the day cooking at Lucy's home-sharing their mutual love for quinces.


In the eighth 'Incidents (of Travel)' dispatch Móvil co-founder and curator Alejandra Aguado followed the itinerary devised by the artist Diego Bianchi around Buenos Aires, Argentina. 

Their exploration took them from the self-regulated community Velatropa to the buzzing commercial area of Once, identifying human and non-human flows and interactions. This became an entry point for discussing Bianchi's interests in how, as consumers, we define a particular zeitgeist and appropriate trends that enable us to affirm our identities.


In the ninth dispatch, Canadian curator Becky Forsythe and Icelandic artist Þorgerður Ólafsdóttir navigate Reykjavík's surroundings considering Þorgerður's “current interest in Icelandic Spar (a form of transparent calcite), its double refraction and light-polarizing properties. In a race with daylight, they travel between sites collecting moments and considering the ways in which geologic time surfaces in the context of human time.”



The tenth dispatch begins with an itinerary proposed by Barcelona-born, Rio de Janeiro-based artist Daniel Steegmann Mangrané and is followed by images and videos recording a day roaming Rio's natural and artistic landscapes with Bogotá-born, Mexico City-based curator Catalina Lozano, who narrates their day spent together. 


In the 11th episode, Swiss curator Sandino Scheidegger (Random Institute) visits Panama City in preparation for a solo exhibition by Donna Conlon and Jonathan Harker at Casa Santa Ana in 2021. 

The places Sandino, Donna and Jonathan visited together pointed to the origin of some of their video works, the ideas behind them, or simply served as stages in their pieces, turning into “an exercise in sneaking through fences to reach former recycling plants, imagining how things looked before the skyscrapers took over, and navigating the complex social fabric of Panama City — all while getting a taste of local food between every stop.” 


The 12th episode from Tbilisi, Georgia, set a different tone in the online series as it was programmed to take place in late May 2020, during the Covid-19 pandemic. 

The itinerary set by Tbilisi-based artist Nino Kvrivishvili to lead Melbourne-based Associate Professor Tara McDowell became a WhatsApp video tour/conversation around Nino's artistic practice and the Georgian silk industry — a production that began in Tbilisi in the 5th century and continued until the collapse of the Soviet Union in the 1990s. 

 

Incidents (of Travel) from Cabo Rojo

In the 13th dispatch, and on week 23 of lockdown, Sofía Gallisá and Marina Reyes begin their day together driving to the Cabo Rojo Salt Flats where Sofía researched her 2018 film ‘Assimilate & Destroy I’. They later end up in Poblado de Boquerón, the queer capital of Puerto Rico's south where a large public beach and a usually busy street still show traces of 2017’s devastating Hurricane Maria.

Incidents (of Travel) from Singapore.

In the 14th dispatch, Singapore-based curator Kathleen Ditzig joins artists Fyerool Darma and Nurul Huda Rashid nearby ‘Safe Entry‘ (2020), a mural presented at the Singapore Art Museum (SAM) by the artist Heman Chong that repeats a single, enlarged QR code, “the new digital skin of the city”, as Nurul points out. From there, they head towards the boardwalk connecting Harbourfront with Sentosa Island, the pleasure island home to many tourist attractions. Fyerool and Nurul weave in stories of past pirates and deities against the backdrop of the glass-green waters that stage the “blue aesthetics against the imported sands [from Indonesia] of reclaimed lands.”

In the 15th dispatch curator Àngels Miralda (current participant of de Appel's Curatorial Programme 2020-21) and artist Salim Bayri (current resident at Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten 2019–21) follow a tour created during the winter 2021 Covid-19 restrictions in the Netherlands. 

Their day in Amsterdam together features public sports locations as social meeting spaces, as well as urban architecture, a visit to a supermarket chain, and a food takeaway. 


In the 16th dispatch, curator Marie-Nour Hechaime navigates Beirut with artist-filmmaker Panos Aprahamian a year after the August 2020 explosion, when hundreds of tons of ammonium nitrate stored for six years without safekeeping in the port of the Lebanese capital were set on fire and exploded. The blast killed more than 200 deaths, 6,500 wounded, 300,000 displaced and great destruction in the city [1]. “I say that I am living with ghosts—of people, places, memories, stories”, she reflects. “He answers that Beirut is disintegrating in front of our very eyes.”


In the 17th dispatch, curator Inga Lāce and artist Linda Boļšakova forage for environmental histories in Riga. The day that takes them from manicured park lawns to a thicket of sea buckthorn bushes near a “post-apocalyptic” sauna, and from a housing project allotment to the laboratories of the National Botanic Garden of Latvia. 


In the 18th dispatch, curator Xenia Kalpaktsoglou and artist Pegy Zali conceive an itinerary and a screenplay-like commentary that takes us through the Attica peninsula, from a mysterious inscription sprayed at the site of a railway sabotage that transpired near Piraeus Port in 2010, to the vestiges of an enormous wildfire that consumed the forest around Alepochori in 2021. Formed through their long-standing friendship and shared research interests, this episode flows around Greece’s links with the emerging infrastructure of China’s New Silk Road, and the “cyber-eco-feminist” traces of the goddess Gaia.


In the 19th episode of Incidents (of Travel), curator Sooyoung Leam reports on a day exploring Yongsan-gu, a district at the heart of Seoul, and the neighbourhood of artist Jeong Yeoreum. Documented by photographer and videographer Swan Park, Sooyoung and Jeong explore this conflicted territory that served as the headquarters of the Imperial Japanese Army between 1910 and 1945, and subsequently as a US military base.

Panorama traces, a year on

Following on our earlier post on recent exhibitions by participating artists in MACBA’s exhibition Panorama 21. Apunts per a un incendi dels ulls, and coinciding with its first anniversary, we highlight four iterations of works produced or derived from their original presentation in the 2021 exhibition.

Antoni Hervàs and El Palomar are currently exhibiting in Frankfurter Kunstverein’s “Where will we go from here? Twelve art stories told from Spain” (on view until 29 January 2023), curated by Rosa Ferré and Ana Ara as part of Spain's Guest of Honour appearance at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2022.

Antoni Hervàs presents “Under the firelight, the ash shines like glitter” (2021-2022), a work that grows from its earlier iteration “La Mellers” (2021, see images above), a sculpture-becoming-exhibition entrance commissioned for Panorama 21. Apunts per a un incendi dels ulls”, which now has become an “archive of its own making” in the words of the artist“Under the firelight...” incorporates new papier-mâché parts allowing Hervàs to continue his research on the Barcelona underground varieté and drag scenes.

El Palomar is presenting their acclaimed film “Schreber is a Woman” (2020) in Frankfurt, which was originally commissioned for the 11th Berlin Biennale in 2020, and premiered in Spain during MACBA’s Panorama 21. Apunts per a un incendi dels ulls”. Since it was screened in Barcelona last October, El Palomar has presented the film in New York this past July (at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art) and this month as part of “To be Seen. Queer Life 1900-1950” at the NS-Dokuzentrum München.

Following on Claudia Pagès solo show “Abajo el puerto suena nino-nino, y yo arriba pipí” at The RYDER in Madrid earlier this past summer, her 360º video installation “Gerundi Circular” (2021) is now on view at Tabakalera in Donostia, Basque Country, until 15th January 2023. The 14-minute film was commissioned for Panorama 21. Apunts per a un incendi dels ulls and co-produced with ELAMOR. “Gerundi Circular” was acquired in 2022 by MACBA through the funds of the Generalitat de Catalunya for the National Collection of Contemporary Art.

Workshop with PUBLICS Youth for TODAY IS OUR TOMORROW 2022

(Above and below) Members of PUBLICS Youth with Irina Mutt during their workshop in Lammassaari, 3 August 2022. Photos by Micol Curatolo.


Within the context of PUBLICS’ annual gathering Today Is Our Tomorrow in Helsinki, artist Laia Estruch and curator Irina Mutt will lead a workshop on October 8th, 2022, as part of this year’s programme focusing on the presentness of the voice in its many sonic forms, vocal modes and acoustic modalities. 

This workshop culminates a series of encounters, part of Latitudes’ ongoing Parahosting at PUBLICS, that have taken place over the summer of 2022 in collaboration with PUBLICS Youth, an education initiative for Helsinki-based 18-21-year-olds.

Following a principle of a tour to bodies rather than to space, the sessions have encompassed new embodiments of Estruch’s “Ocells Perduts” (Stray Birds) (2021), a work originally produced for MACBA’s exhibition “Panorama 21. Notes for an Eye Fire”, curated by Latitudes and Hiuwai Chu, and supported by PUBLICS.



Latitudes has been collaborating with Laia Estruch since early 2020 in preparation for a year-long programme to be hosted at the Helsinki-based curatorial and commissioning agency PUBLICS, based around the notion of a partial, distributed, and fragmentary retrospective of her artistic practice. The pandemic altered those plans and in the summer of 2020, the invitation to curate MACBA’s first Panorama triennial (Panorama 21: Apunts per a un incendi dels ulls”) came along, for which Laia presented the new commission Ocells Perduts” (2021). The project was produced with the support of PUBLICS, and for the research phase, Laia received the support of the beca Premis Barcelona 2020 of the Ajuntament de Barcelona.

“‘Minor’ Ornithologies” podcast conducted by Max Andrews of Latitudes for TBA21 on st_age



Listen to the podcast here.

Latitudes’ Max Andrews, a curator, writer and lifelong birder, recently conducted the podcast Minor” Ornithologies for TBA21 on st_age (Season 4, Episode 4). The podcast’s guests are Alex Holt, a spokesperson for Bird Names for Birds, a movement to decolonise bird names, and zoömusicologist Dr Hollis Taylor who specialises in birdsong. Through their perspectives, we glimpse new and speculative kinds of human–bird narratives – what Anna-Sophie Springer and Etienne Turpin have coined “minor ornithologies”. 

The interviews are complemented by two audio clips, one of a Pied Butcherbird recorded in N Queensland, and another of a Superb Lyrebird mimicking birdsong and two flute phrases recorded in New South Wales, both courtesy of Hollis Taylor.

This edition accompanies Laia Estruch’s performance “Ocells Perduts V67” (2022) also produced by TBA21 on st_age, and takes flight into the realm of birds, looking at politics and practices that disrupt dominant historical narratives, and exceed scientific and cultural boundaries.

Commissioned by MACBA Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona with the support of PUBLICS, Helsinki. Estruch’s research was supported by the grant Premis Barcelona 2020 of the Ajuntament de Barcelona.

In February 2022 we received a request from 
Kunsthalle Wilhelmshaven, an institution in a coastal town on the Jade Bight in northern Germany, enquiring about including images of Jan Dibbets’s “6 Hours Tide Object with Correction of Perspective” (2009) in the catalogue “By The Sea. Land Art, Performance and Minimal Art”, a 2021 exhibition that focused around ephemeral works of happening at the seaside.

Jan Dibbets’s project consisted of a reenactment of his 12 Hours Tide Object with Correction of Perspective” (1969) commissioned by Latitudes forty years later to inaugurate the 2009 “Portscapes” commissions series of accumulative projects sited in and around the Port of Rotterdam, the largest seaport in Europe. Portscapes projects were displayed at the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam in 2010. Portscapes” was produced by the Port of Rotterdam Authority in collaboration with the sadly now-defunct internationally operating Dutch cultural organisation SKOR | Foundation Art and Public Space (1999–2012).

Mentores de la primera residencia curatorial en línea de Tropical Papers otorgada a un curador peruano

Entre septiembre y noviembre 2022, Latitudes será el mentor de Matheus Calderón Torres, ganador de [ON RESIDENCE], la primera residencia en línea otorgada a un joven curador peruano organizada por TROPICAL PAPERS en asociación con ARTUS Perú.

Matheus Calderón Torres (Sullana, 1994) es crítico cultural, traductor y curador residente en Lima, licenciado en Literatura Hispánica (BA) y en Historia del Arte y Estudios Curatoriales (MA) por la Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú. Junto con Meier Ramírez Publicaciones, ha traducido y editado al español las conferencias de arte contemporáneo del filósofo francés Alain Badiou. Recientemente ha curado la exposición “Indigno de ser humano” de la artista Ali Salazar para Ginsberg Galería (2022), y prepara “Rituales de la modernidad” del artista Luis Enrique Zela-Kort (mayo 2023). Actualmente es profesor de escritura no ficcional en el Centro de la Imagen, Escuela de Artes Visuales y Fotografía, y trabaja como periodista en la plataforma peruana Comité de Lectura. 


Su propuesta de investigación gira entorno a la autorrepresentación a través de la práctica artística de cinco artistas peruanxs contemporáneos. Calderón analizará los distintos modos en que lxs artistas se autoinsertan en sus respectivas obras, espacios desde donde piensan la propia institución, desde donde la rechazan o aceptan la propia escena artística.
