Lovers of the most daring, innovative, dynamic and even off-the-wall performing arts can't afford to miss this festival. The new edition of SÂLMON, headed by the Mercat de les Flors, Barcelona's leading dance venue, features a packed programme showcasing a range of formats by both local and international creatives who work under the system of artistic residencies.
It is very much an organic event, each year building on and evolving from the performances and creativity of previous festivals; it also adapts to what is happening in the world at large and the way that the use of public platforms, such as the stage, changes.
Victor Papanek was an Austrian designer, author and activist who was intensely involved in the debate about what kind of role the designer and design itself should have in order to make a contribution to society. The Museu del Disseny in Barcelona is now offering the first major retrospective of this author with the Exhibition entitled Victor Papanek: The politics of design. Featuring a wide range of original pieces from the Victor Papanek Foundation, this exhibition brings his work into the 21st century and demonstrates his lasting effect as a designer, critic and social activist.
The work of the German artist Charlotte Posenenske (1930-1985) was brief but intense. She developed a form of mass produced minimalism in response to the social and economic concerns of the time, eschewing the art market and rejecting conventional formal and cultural hierarchies. The MACBA is now displaying the "Work in progress" exhibition, bringing together works by Posenenske from 1956 to 1968, from her first drawings and paintings to her aluminum wall-reliefs and her last and best-known modular sculptures. An exhibition that was previously in Beacon, New York and which will continue touring across Europe.
The MACBA is staging a solo exhibition of the Greek artist Takis (Panagiotis Vassilakis). Born in Athens in 1925, Takis died last August. The MACBA is paying tribute to this artist who was a pioneer in the creation of new artistic forms using invisible energies such as magnetism and electricity. This exhibition is organized by the Tate Modern in collaboration with the MACBA and the Museum of Cycladic Art, Athens.
The friendship between Picasso and the surrealist poet Paul Éluard was strong and unbreakable. Following the death of Apollinaire, both men got together to share and exchange ideas and opinions. The premature death of Éluard, after twenty years of friendship, was a major blow for the painter who had published a book months earlier with a series of the poet's drawings that featured a beautifully written prologue by Éluard himself. The Picasso Museum examines the relationship of both of these artists through Éluard's books and poetry and his art collection, as well as Picasso's portraits and drawings of the poet and his wife Nusch. We will also come across photographs by Man Ray and Brassaï and correspondence and documentary films narrating the meetings between the two friends.
The graphic designer America Sánchez has had ties to Barcelona for over 50 years. His eclectic style makes him difficult to define, therefore the title of this exhibition staged at the Palau Robert comes from a conference that Sánchez himself held in 2010 and where he affirmed that his style was comprised of these four concepts. This exhibition explores the artist's work and other pieces from various city institutions, given that Juan Carlos Pérez Sánchez, who later became America Sánchez in honor of his mother, is inextricably linked with Barcelona.
Picasso had a love of words, writing, poetry and language from a young age. His friend André Breton enshrined this side of Picasso's personality in 1935 with a text published in Cahiers d’Art. This painting genius acknowledged that “All the arts are ultimately one and the same. One can write a painting with words just as one can paint sensations in a poem.” The temporary exhibition entitled Picasso Poeta reveals the importance of poetry writing to his creative career and introduces us to his manuscripts and his sources, the connection between his writings and paintings and, above all, his ingenuity as a poet.
