    Lawrence Weiner at Lisson Gallery, London


    Lawrence Weiner has recently opened a solo show at Lisson Gallery, London (6 February – 15 March). The show includes works from 2007 (titles below) and expands on his recent touring retrospective 'AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE', which opened at the Whitney Museum of American Art last November and will tour to MoCA Los Angeles (13 April – 14 July) and K21 in Düsseldorf, Germany (20 September 2008 – 11 January 2009).

    In the autumn Latitudes will curate a project with Weiner which will be presented in Barcelona at the Nivell 0 space in Fundació Suñol.

    In Memoriam: Luciano Fabro (1936–2007)

     
    Photo: Latitudes | www.lttds.org

    Acabamos de leer en Flash Art la notícia del fallecimiento del artista povera, Luciano Fabro el pasado viernes 22 en Milano. No queremos dejar pasar la ocasión para recordar su última aparición en Barcelona en ocasión de la exposición de la Herbert Collection en el MACBA en Febrero 2006.

    En su inauguración me presentaron al artista y entusiasmado con que hubiese alguien que hablase italiano en el evento me animó a hacerle de traductora en la charla del día siguiente en el museo. Nos encontramos en la plaza 1 hora antes de la conferencia. Tomamos un café rápido en c/ Elisabets e intercambiamos comentarios sobre sus notas y sobre la exposición. Desde ‘el gallinero’ de los traductores en el auditori del MACBA me lancé a traducirle lo que sus colegas hablaban en inglés. Luciano era de los que aprendió francés. A pesar de mis torpes referencias él siempre me sonreía desde abajo. Ahora seremos nosotros quien te sonreiremos desde aquí.
