Swab is the offputting name of a new art fair in Barcelona next spring, with the deadpan tagline "Swab: small piece of absorbent material attached to the end of a stick or wire. Swab will absorb Contemporary Art around the world between the 10th and the 13th of May 2007 in Barcelona." Weeping sores anyone?

Amy Balkin: Public Smog

"Public Smog is part of an ongoing conceptual artwork by San Francisco-based artist, Amy Balkin. The project consists of a gesture in which the artist buys and withholds carbon gas emission credits from international trading markets in order to create a temporary clean-air park. Aiming to highlight the complexities and contradictions of current environmental protocols, Balkin will attempt to submit an application to qualify the entire atmosphere as a UNESCO World Heritage Site."

Curated by MA Curating Contemporary Art students at the Royal College of Art
1 — 7 November 2006, 12noon — 6pm, Private View 1 November, 6 — 9pm

Latitudes meets Attitudes

By sheer serendipity we ended up spending the evening last Saturday with Jean-Paul Felley and Olivier Kaeser who run –pay attention now...– Attitudes Espace d'arts contemporains in Geneva, Switzerland. The next projects at the space (from 17 November) are by Tomás Saraceno and Dan Perjovschi. They present pages in Attitudes journal, called Latitudes, featuring artists working in residence around the world. Here is Lara Almárcegui's page.

Lara Almarcegui in Frieze Art Fair

One of our many highlights of the manic Frieze week–last week–was finally meeting up with artist Rotterdam-based Spanish artist Lara Almarcegui. She was presenting a new work for Frieze Projects that listed all the weights of materials that made up the fair's tent structure (see above).

We have been working with Lara as one of the contributors to LAND, ART: A Cultural Ecology Handbook (with pages documenting her wasteland projects), and she will also be presenting at the Arts & Ecology conference No Way Back? in London in December.
