View of the first chapter of Guy Mees's “Espace Perdu (Verloren Ruimte)” at ProjecteSD, Barcelona, 2018.
by

Helena Tatay

Guy Mees (1935–2003) was a leading figure of the Belgian avant-garde whose enigmatic work combined formal diversity with conceptual rigor. A consecutive pair of exhibitions at Barcelona’s ProjecteSD—the first from March to April, the second from May to June—shed light on his career, offering carefully curated series of works alongside... continue reading
Allora & Calzadilla

FUNDACIó ANTONI TàPIES, Barcelona

Allora & Calzadilla,  Stop, Repair, Prepare: Variations on Ode to Joy, No.3, 2008.
by

Mariana Canepa Luna

A piercing whistle punctuates the blaring of a trumpet. But in the columned central space of the Fundació Antoni Tàpies, the only visible instrument is a grand piano.

Loop Barcelona

VARIOUS LOCATIONS, Barcelona

Antoni Miralda, The Last Carnival Cruise, 1980-2016.
by

Lucy Reynolds

Barcelona’s Loop art fair, which started in 2003, is the oldest and most established initiative to assert the commercial potential of film and video. The medium’s ephemeral nature, and its associations with the very different market values of cinema, have contributed to a continued reluctance from collectors, attracted by the... continue reading
