(...) The first people we approached to participate were Max Andrews and Mariana Cánepa Luna, who are partners in Latitudes, a curatorial office based in Barcelona. They have a wonderful flexibility in their projects, which include overseeing public commissions, organizing conferences, as well as initiating multidisciplinary research and editorial programs. Our preliminary conversations led quickly to the notion of a weekly newspaper produced in the New Museum over the course of a residency. From this point, we moved pretty quickly into a landscape of organizational residencies that will animate the social aspects of the exhibition. – Richard Flood, interview with Benjamin Godsill about the exhibition, fall 2010.

 
The Last Newspaper will be a hybrid exhibition inspired by the ways artists approach the news and respond to the stories and images that command the headlines. Alongside the exhibition, a number of partner organisations (see list below) will use on-site offices to present their research, engage in rapid prototyping, and stage public dialogues, opening up the galleries as spaces of intellectual production as well as display.

'THE LAST POST' / 'THE LAST GAZETTE' / 'THE LAST REGISTER'... will be an evolving-titled 12-page free weekly newspaper and an incremental exhibition catalogue edited by Latitudes and produced and disseminated from the museum every week for 10 weeks.


The tabloids, design directed by Chad Kloepfer, will be conceived by a specially-assembled editorial team and contributors who are giving their time and skills pro bono. The published record of the enterprise will be bound at the conclusion to form a surrogate catalogue of The Last Newspaper.


Artists in the exhibition:
Alighiero e Boetti; Judith Bernstein; Pierre Bismuth; Andrea Bowers; Francois Bucher; Sarah Charlesworth; Luciano Fabro; Robert Gober; Hans Haacke; Karl Haendel; Rachel Harrison; Thomas Hirschhorn; Emily Jacir; Larry Johnson; Mike Kelley; Nate Lowman; Sarah Lucas; Adam McEwen; Aleksandra Mir; Adrian Piper; William Pope.L; Allen Ruppersberg; Dexter Sinister; Dash Snow; Rikrit Tiravanija; Wolfgang Tillmans; and Kelley Walker.Partner organisations: Center for Urban Pedagogy; StoryCorps; Latitudes; The Slought Foundation; INABA, Columbia University’s C-Lab; Joseph Grima and Kazys Varnelis/Netlab; and Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere.

Exhibition co-curated by Richard Flood, Chief Curator of the
New Museum and Benjamin Godsill, Curatorial Associate.

"La primera persona que invitamos a participar fue Max Andrews y Mariana Cánepa Luna, socios de Latitudes, una oficina curatorial con base en Barcelona. Tienen una maravillosa flexibilidad en sus proyectos, que incluyen la supervisión de comisiones públicas, la organización de conferencias, así como iniciar programas de investigación multidisciplinaria y de índole editorial. Nuestras conversaciones preliminares nos llevaron rápidamente hacia la idea de realizar un periodico semanal producido en el New Museum en el transcurso de una residencia. – Richard Flood, entrevista con Benjamin Godsill entorno a la exposición, otoño 2010

'The Last Newspaper' será una exposición híbrida que explorará el modo en que los artistas responden a las noticias, imágenes y titulares y al tiempo analizará cómo se genera, gestiona, registra, ordena y distribuye la información. Un número de organizaciones asociadas han sido invitadas a 'desplazar' sus oficinas al terreno museístico para presentar su trabajo, participar en la creación de propotipos y diálogos públicos, convirtiendo las galerías del museo en espacios de exhibición y discurso.

'THE LAST POST' / 'THE LAST GAZETTE' / 'THE LAST REGISTER'... será un tabloide semanal de 12 páginas editado por Latitudes durante 10 semanas ‘en directo’ desde una sala de redacción instalada en el espacio expositivo. El periódico será una publicación episódica gratuita que cambiará su título semanalmente e investigará el frágil momento del periódico como medio de comunicación así como los comportamientos comunes entre la labor editorial y la curatorial.

Los tabloides, cuyo diseño será dirigido por Chad Kloepfer, serán un documento en continua formación que registrará la exposición. Al concluir ésta, se encuadernarán como un único volumen formando el catálogo sustituto de 'The Last Newspaper'.

Artist-run initiatives in Barcelona

Several admirable artist-run initiatives have recently made refreshing incursions into the Barcelona cultural landscape. Self-organisation and sustained micro-activity outside the major institutions have been uncommon in recent years. Yet as the city awaits the opening of the future 'Kunstverein' of Barcelona, the Canòdrom Centre d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona (the planned Spring 2011 opening now suffering delays and budget cuts), and with a continuing lack of flexible grants and affordable rents, innovative projects have sprung up through necessity. These have often been as sporadic and ephemeral, such as the weekend group exhibition of about 30 artists 'Entes' at the flat of artist Luz Broto's last November (video here, photo documentation here) or 'Domestica 2' an open-submission group show organized by artists Antoni Hervàs, Ariadna Parreu and Consol Llupià, whose second edition took place in early July in a former bicycle repair shop. ('Entes' will take shape again as the summer show at gallery Àngels Barcelona (22 July–18 September 2010), an interesting transition.)


KKKB (Komando Kultura Kontemporanea Barcelona), a non-profit cultural association, opened at the end of May 2010 with '7 Songs. The raining machine of Raffaella Carrà's monkey does ventriloquism with my neighbour', a project curated by artist Daniel Jacoby. The street-level space in Joaquin Costa 9, nearby MACBA, resembles more a traditional gallery space, opens weekdays 18-21h and is currently accepting exhibition proposals.

Halfhouse Espacio, which operates as an association in order to be able to apply for grants, is an exhibition space of about 10m2 in the private apartment of artists Alberto Peral and Sinéad Spelman. It opened on December 2009 with 'Short Time', a screening programme of 15 videos under 1 minute by artists David Bestué, Luis Bisbe, Jesús Palomino, Gabriel Pericàs, Jorge Satorre and Daniel Steegmann, amongst others, as well as a site-specific work by Renata Lucas.

'5 Platonic Solids' followed in April 2010, with a 'chain invitation' by artists and curators that led to the presentation of works by Daniel Jacoby, Paloma Polo, Christian Friedrich, Johannes Wald and Florian Kohler and last June they presented 'Puede que nadie vuelva a tener el mismo conocimiento' a project by Maria Castelló Solbes and Regina de Miguel.

Halfhouse's programme not only includes exhibitions. In their manifesto, they announce the intention of offering 'discursive support, tortilla and wine' as well as opening up to other formats such as residencies (the first of which takes place this summer as a flat swap), performances and talks.

Their most recent show, 'Lo de siempre raras veces ocurre', opened on a very humid 16 July with a strong selection of works displayed in the 'exhibition' space, as well as in the private space of the flat, by 4 students from the Fine Arts Department at the Universitat de Barcelona: Serafín Álvarez, Mercedes Mangrané, Gerard Ortín, and Rafel Marcos Mota. The later lay underneath a gold emergency blanket for the most part of the opening as a test of resistance to the event as well as the high temperature. Álvarez presented two works: '±2.5 g (I Believed I Could Fly)' consisting of two silver balloons tethered to 10g weights at a height of 160cm – susceptible to human and atmospheric changes; as well as the performative piece 'Sube a velocidad constante, fría y pequeña, aunque en el torrente sanguíneo te mate', for which he poured cava into an empty glass with a microphone amplifying the bubbles. Gerard Ortín's video 'El Truco' showed his cat snoozing in a garden. During the opening, the artist honked an old-fashioned horn coinciding with a moment when the animal was startled from its sleep as if claiming its attention in a delayed interaction between owner and pet. Mercedes Magrané's two short videos (one on a TV monitor, another projected) showed views of the apartment-space, one is an objective view of the flat (a sort of promotional agency video of the property) and the other being a more intimate portrait of inhabited space (afternoon light, the artist touching a plant…).

Direlia Lazo hablará sobre la exposición 'I'm not here. An exhibition without Francis Alÿs' (17 Abril—6 Junio 2010, de Appel Arts Centre, Amsterdam) y presentará su catálogo.
'I'm not here. An exhibition without Francis Alÿs' está inspirada en la película 'I'm not there' (2007) dirigida por Todd Haynes, donde seis actores encarnan diferentes facetas de la vida de Bob Dylan sin la presencia física del músico. De modo similar, Francis Alÿs es el protagonista 'ausente' de 'I'm not here…', aunque la obra de los 14 artistas participantesexposición pretende cuestionar el formato de la exposición individual al tiempo que aborda los conceptos de presencia y ausencia. evoca la atmósfera de la práctica artística del artista belga afincado en México. Cambiando el punto de atención que recae sobre artistas establecidos como Alÿs a un grupo de prácticas artísticas relacionadas, la exposición pretende cuestionar el formato de la exposición individual al tiempo que aborda los conceptos de presencia y ausencia.

Raimond Chaves & Gilda Mantilla exhibition 'Observaciones sobre la ciudad de polvo', ProjecteSD, Barcelona

Following their 2007 exhibition 'Mal de América' at ProjecteSD in Barcelona, Raimond Chaves (Bogotá, 1963) & Gilda Mantilla (Los Angeles, 1967) opened the exhibition 'Observaciones sobre la ciudad de polvo' (Observations around the city of dust) on Friday 5 June, which remains open until August 2010.

The works present a reading of the Peruvian capital Lima, the city where the artists currently live, and inspired by its peculiar climate: "a city with an opaque atmosphere, cloudy and little renewed, due mostly to the city location. Encircled by the Northern mountain range, the city holds the vapours coming from both the coast and the perspiration of the fertile vegetation that surrounds it, and given the weakness of southern winds, the fog cannot overcome the moutain tops" (quote by Hipólito Unanue included in the press release).

'Observaciones sobre la ciudad de polvo' presents a range of delicate two and three dimensional works made out of recycled cardboard (the tones ranging from grey to brick to beige in reference to Lima's climate) as well as wood and acrylic. A related series is concurrently shown at Galeria Revólver in Lima (until 19 June). The project was awarded with a Fundación Marcelino Botín grant (2008–9).

Chaves & Mantilla have collaborated since 2001, and have published books including Hangueando Periódico de Cordel – Descarga Cultural en Puerto Rico (2004) and Dibujando América (2009) amongst others. They recently participated in the 27ª Bienal de Sao Paulo (2006) and the II trienal Poli/Gráfica de San Juan, Latinoamérica and the Caribean (2009).

Chaves is giving a lecture on Tuesday 8 June, 19.30.

Simon Fujiwara wins the 2010 Cartier Award

Rendering of 'Frozen'. Courtesy the artist and Frieze Foundation
Frieze Foundation has recently announced the 2010 Cartier Winner: Berlin-based British/Japanese artist Simon Fujiwara (1982). The prize is addressed to artists not living in the UK and covers coproduction costs of up to £10,000, a £1,000 artist’s fee, per diems, travel expenses and a studio residency at Gasworks in London from August to October 2010.

According to the press release "at Frieze Art Fair 2010 Fujiwara plans to present a new site-specific work, Frozen: an installation based on the fictive premise that an ancient lost city has been discovered beneath the site of the fair."

Fujiwara presented 'The Museum of Incest' during the 2009 Frieze in the newly inaugurated section FRAME (see Latitudes' post here) with Frankfurt–based gallery Galerie Neue Alte Brücke.

Before then, a version of the museum was presented at the Latitudes-curated exhibition 'Provenances' at Umberto di Marino, Naples, during which 'The Incest Museum: A Guided Tour' was published by Archive Books.
