Campus” es una escuela de arte temporal, gratuita, sin créditos universitarios y bilingüe (castellano/inglés), un proyecto piloto enfocado al intercambio de ideas y de experiencias. Combinando los modelos de escuela y de residencia de artistas, “Campus” se plantea como un espacio para la experimentación y la reflexión crítica, un lugar en el que par ticipantes no reciben una enseñanza académica sino que se les inspira a partir de su participación práctica en actividades de grupo o tutorías personales, con el fin de potenciar la comunicación y la profesionalización del artista.

Destinado a artistas nacidos en o después de 1980 de cualquier nacionalidad, “
Campus” se estructura en tres fases: (27 de junio al 1 de julio) fase introductoria complementada por conferencias en las que presentan cuatro innovadores casos de programas artísticos internacionales; (4 de julio al 29 de julio) un intenso programa de cuatro sesiones de trabajo semanales lideradas por artistas-tutores y una fase final (29 de julio al 28 de agosto) de exposición documental y una publicación.

Conversation between Dora García and Isidoro Valcárcel Medina, ProjecteSD, Barcelona, 12 April

Last night, a fascinating conversation between Dora García and Isidoro Valcárcel Medina took place at ProjecteSD, Barcelona, coinciding with the opening of the exhibition Forever, which featured works by both artists as well as Joe Scanlan.
García led the dialogue which began around the concept of the over-excluded or the super-excluded artists in relation to Pierre Bal-Blanc's 2009 Secession exhibition and essay 'The Death of the Audience' (interview with the author here). Besides talking about this long-term interest of García around 'the marginal', the artists also discussed the role and sense of mission attributed to artists, censorship (and self-censorship), what it means to work ethically (or the ethics of work), the definition of quality and regret.

One of the highlights was this short exchange:

Dora García: Do you identify with the idea of an artist without work?

Isidoro Varcárcel Medina: Is that possible?
DG: Well, there's a few examples in history...
IVM: With or without a catalogue...?

Dora García
(Valladolid, Spain, 1965) studied Fine Arts at the Universidad de Salamanca and was resident at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam (1989–1991). Recent projects and exhibitions include Kunsthalle Bern (2010), Index (Stockholm 2010) and Schirn Kunsthalle (Frankfurt, 2009). She participated amongst others at the Lyon Biennial 2009, the Sydney Biennial 2008, and Skulptur Projekte Münster in 2007. Dora García will represent Spain at the upcoming Venice Biennial (2011) with her new project The Inadequate.

Isidoro Valcárcel Medina (Murcia, Spain, 1937) moved to Madrid at the age of nineteen to study Architecture and Fine Arts. From 1972 on, after taking part in the Encuentros de Pamplona on conceptual art, his work involved actions and works for public spaces. He is one of the leading Spanish Conceptualists, not only historically, but also as an artistic referent for a new generation of creators. Valcárcel Medina had a retrospective exhibition at the Tàpies Foundation in 2002, exhibitions at MACBA in 2006, and at Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in 2009. In 2007 he received the Premio Nacional de Artes Plásticas and recently (2011) he was awarded in the first edition of the Premios Arte y Mecenazgo.

Alexandra Navratil at Angels Barcelona & Frieze.com

Latitudes' Max Andrews reviews Alexandra Navratil's (17.06.08 > 20.09.08) show at Àngels Barcelona for Frieze.com

"Navratil’s curious exhibition ... prompts a filmic response throughout – each element, including drawings and two videos, might be read as parts of the same arcane, deconstructed movie production. Yet ..."
