June 6. OnCurating issue no. 36 ‘Spaces of Anticipation’ launch at TIER.space
We will celebrate our first event this coming Wednesday, June 6th at 19:00 with the launch of the latest OnCurating issue, no. 36 ‘Spaces of Anticipation’, with contributions from Antonia Alampi, BAR Project (Juan Canela, Andrea Novoa, Verónica Valentini), Luis Berríos-Negrón, Sol Calero, Binna Choi, Céline Condorelli, Valentina Desideri, Jonatan Habib Engqvist, Doris Krüger and Walter Pardeller, Teobaldo Lagos Preller, Alex Martinis Roe, Christian Nyampeta, Justo Pastor Mellado, Manuel Segade and Alec Steadman, and edited by Lorenzo Sandoval and Emanuele Guidi.
This issue developed from a research project by Lorenzo Sandoval and Emanuele Guidi that looks at artistic and curatorial practices so as to explore the role and potential of artistic and cultural institutional models. So far, Spaces of Anticipation has taken the form of a symposium with the same title at EACC (Castellón, Spain); the research exhibition Making Room. Spaces of Anticipation, and a second symposium and workshop both at ar/ge kunst (Bolzano, Italy). The term ‘anticipation’ aims at proposing an affirmative approach to the research as intends to elude the use of ‘post-isms’ and ‘future-ism’ terminology, which have been largely employed as parameters to discuss present conditions and their responsibilities.In these terms Spaces of Anticipation aims at gathering practices and relations able to ‘re-territorialize’ existing models of institutions through a genuine ‘desire of becoming’ by acting within present and unexpected conditions.
Various books and printed matter from contributors to this issue of OnCurating will be arranged in the space to expand the contents and trajectories of the publication. A special fermented drink will be prepared by artist Daniel Salomon.
