Barcelona, Besòs View
Patrick Faigenbaum and Joan Roca04.11.2017 – 04.02.2018
‘‘All theoretical discourse falters when the dialectic of the ‘foreign’ and the ‘same’ emerges. Barcelona, Besòs View is based on an internalisation of the identical, of the same, and not on an observation of the foreign. When rooted in the portrait, pure description becomes blurred. Isn’t it always the foreigner’s gaze that lays bare the figures of crisis?’’
Rue des Pyrénées

‘‘What is all the clamor over space? (…) The love of space is there, and painting functions in space like everything else because it is a communal fact –it can be held in common. Only time can be felt in private. Space is common property. Only time is personal, a private experience.’’
Sala Miserachs20 Red Lights
Max de Esteban10.11.2017 – 04.02.2018
Taking as title a phrase from ‘Far Away Eyes’, the song of The Rolling Stones, Max Esteban (Barcelona, 1959) critically investigates the grammars of financial capitalism, the architectures that symbolize its supremacy, as well as those monetary algorithms - virtual and abstracts - from which this economic system executes its enormous social influence.
Virreina LABIntervention 1917. The Year We Really Made the Revolution
07.11.2017 – 17.11.2017
‘This project It is not a ‘celebratory exhibition’, an ‘iconographic chronicle’ or a ‘historical account’. It does not aspire to critical balance, exultant hagiography or comfortable melancholy either. What we hope to do is to present a ‘report on the current state of the Soviet revolution of 1917’ in order to facilitate a reading of the voices and echoes of the event in the light of today.’

Robert Cahen29.04.2017 – 25.06.2017
Video, installations, projections and loops are the media that Robert Cahen uses in his representations of travel, landscape, passage (crossroads) and portrait, as he goes beyond appearances to explore the thresholds of the images, sounds and silences of the world, of all those who live in it and pass through it.
Sala MiserachsÁfrica 815. Paradise lost
Pilar Monsell08.04.2017 – 18.06.2017
‘Africa 815’ -the first feature film by Pilar Monsell- is a piece that explores many questions using an overwhelmingly confessional voice. The film problematizes the personal diaries of the director's father using images and thoughts that bring the past into the present, that unite the now with the possible, and which create a (self-) portrait in search of a paradise that is always over the horizon.
Le mie parole
Ketty La Rocca08.04.2017 – 18.06.2017
“The ultimate purpose of words and artistic images is not to bring our understanding closer to meaning, but to increase the difficulty of our perceptions, to challenge by dissociating, to interpret by deducing, to show us objects as if we were seeing them for the first time.”
