23 January 2017 - 18 June 2017
Museo Can Framis, C/ Roc Boronat, 116-126. 08018 Barcelona  España + Google Map

Inauguration at 7.30 pm Jordi Alcaraz (Calella, 1963) is a creator at the intersection between visual poetry and conceptual projection, whose work consists of a metaphorical approach to the object. Alcaraz experiments with fragile materials imbued with a certain lyricism – water, glass, mirrors and books – to create bonds of tension between them, while constructing a discourse associated with volume, language and time. His output, which transcends limits between disciplines, is a paean to the unfinished work and art…

Self-organization

17 February 2017 - 21 May 2017
Fundación Joan Miró, Parc de Montjuïc s/n 08038 Barcelona  Spain + Google Map

Self-organization traces the genealogy of DIY practices from the pioneering artists of the 1960s to the present. Applying what could be considered as self-organisation strategies, these artists have gained control of the production, transmission and reception of their works with gestures of empowerment that have resulted in new ways of relating to the art system. The works in the exhibition form a constellation of practices and gestures that advocate the ongoing power of the imagination and creativity. +info

VOID – Khalid Andrew McMahon

12 May 2017 - 31 May 2017
Bien Cuadrado, Ataülf, 14, 08002 Barcelona España + Google Map

VOID is the product of a building sense of reality and perception warping under pressure of an incomprehensible global shift. Central to this shift are societies worldwide, entrapped within disparate streams of information, ideas, newzak and infotainment, devoid of any centralised framework for fruitful consumption. Reaping from the background noise of said shift, McMahon draws on the mediatization of the everyday, pulling the viewer into an eerily atmospheric world of hyper-reality. Making use of film, sound and objects McMahon’s installation…

Fundación Joan Miró, Parc de Montjuïc s/n 08038 Barcelona  Spain + Google Map

Joan Brossa always appealed to the beginning of her admired Fregoli: "Art is life and life is transformation". Cloe Masotta goes out on the street with this premise because at any moment an object, a text, a shadow or a color that attracts her and that she can capture with her mobile phone can appear. The framed reality is transformed and offers a poetic game. Nothing is what it seems.

Post refers to after, Trans refers us to the other side of. Post-humanism and Transhumanism are widely used terms today, they appear to be opposites but often come to mean the same thing: an overcoming of the human condition as understood so far. An exhibition that oscillates between the generic of both prefixes, thinking about the human body and its identity, evoking a 'post' future, but also alluding to a rupture of 'trans' boundaries, as in the series of two…
