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.

We just received a copy of the catalogue which features works by Milan Adamčiak/Jozef Revallo/Róbert Cyprich, Bas Jan Ader, Nikita Alexeev, Keith Arnatt, Artur Barrio, Bård Breivik, John Cage, Oddvar IN Daren, Ina Hagen, Lumír Hladík, Peter Hutchinson, Tadeusz Kantor, Inghild Karlsen, Alison Knowles, Jiří Kovanda, Milan Kozelka, Jeewi Lee, Cecylia Malik, Ana Mendieta, Fina Miralles, Jüri Okas, Ewa Partum, Zorka Ságlová, Gerry Schum, Mieko Shiomi, Robert Smithson, Gerd Tinglum, The Deadly Doris and Ben Vautier.

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).

Panorama in Madrid and Córdoba

Seven artists are currently exhibiting in Madrid or Córdoba with works produced, presented or derived from their original presentation in the group exhibition Panorama 21. Apunts per a un incendi dels ulls that took place at MACBA Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona, between October 2021 and February 2022, curated by Hiuwai Chu and Latitudes.

Rosa Tharrats opened her first solo exhibition at Galería Ehrhardt Flórez in Madrid. Titled Theta Wave” (until July 3, 2022) it presents a new installation made with her signature materials, including recycled textiles and clothes, bioplastics, sponges, nets or stones, and is complemented with a suite of framed drawings and a sculpture made with discarded marble pieces intersected with fabrics. The text accompanying Rosa’s exhibition is written by another Panorama participant, Gabriel Ventura, whose performative action and poem “Passió i cartografia per a un incendi dels ulls” titled the small book published as the colophon of the exhibition. 

The next show at Galería Ehrhardt Flórez will be a solo by Panorama participant Laia Estruch, coinciding with Apertura Madrid Gallery Weekend that inaugurates the 2022–23 season.

La publicación “Passió i cartografia per a un incendi dels ulls” se plantea como el poético colofón de la exposición “Apunts per a un incendi dels ulls” (MACBA Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona, 22 octubre 2021–27 febrero 2022), el primer proyecto de la serie Panorama – una nueva línea de proyectos trienales que inicia el MACBA enfocados en las prácticas artísticas contemporáneas de la escena catalana.







El libro incluye un nuevo poema-deriva en tres movimientos de Gabriel Ventura que se descompone en una pluralidad de voces y puntos de vista dibujando una cartografía textual de la exposición

Como parte de la programación de actividades de la exposiciónel pasado 13 de enero 2022, el cantaor flamenco Pere Martínez y Ventura recitaron y cantaron los versos durante una única visita performativa en que los visitantes eran invitados a deambular las distintas salas del museo, seducidos por la melodía y las palabras de los amfitriones.

Diseñado por Ana Domínguez Studio (Lara Coromina y Ana Dominguez), el libro también incluye documentación fotográfica de la exposición realizada por Roberto Ruiz, Eva Carasol, Miquel Coll, Ana Domínguez Studio y los comisarios, así como una evocación fantasmal de su identidad gráfica con páginas translúcidas que parecen velar las imágenes y las palabras con nubes de humo y destellos de energía.

Opening of the exhibition "Notes for an Eye Fire" at MACBA


The exhibition Notes for an Eye Fire opens on 21 October 2021 at the Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA) and will remain on view until 27 February 2022.

Notes for an Eye Fire is the first exhibition of a new series of triennial transdisciplinary projects entitled Panorama, focusing on artistic practices in and around Barcelona. As the “notes” of the title suggests, this group exhibition attempts to jot down, to lay out and to connect without seeking to be in any way definitive.

Notes for an Eye Fire brings together a group of specially commissioned works and recent productions 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.

Participants: 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.
