Index – The Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation is staging an exhibition in Barcelona together with La Capella as part of their institutional dialogue.
The Impersonal Verb and the Hidden Subject uses Index’s institutional methodology to provide La Capella with a way of working with artistic practice and audiences based on a desire for connecting situations, approaching complexity and experimenting with temporalities. The basis of the exhibition is a worktable presenting archive material and a selection of video works that visitors and the team from La Capella can interact with. The exhibition space has been defined through sculptural pieces by Johanna Gustafsson Fürst. La Capella team will relate to the presented material and formulate dialogues with artists from Barcelona working in parallel fields.
An ongoing dialogue between La Capella and Index has defined the type of artworks to be presented at the exhibition, understanding ways of doing in Barcelona’s art scene and how to relate these ways of doing to art practitioners in Stockholm. The exhibition is understood as a working situation to think about connections, feeding, language, grammar and possible dialogues. The Impersonal Verb and the Hidden Subject refers to actions in the doing, gazes and processes to be shared in real time.
The exhibition is produced with the support of Kulturrådet (Swedish Arts Council).
Index curatorial team.
The Index team comprises the constellation of art professionals working at the foundation. Adopting and defining its institutional methodology, several individuals work collectively with curatorial processes that are embedding archive analyses, exhibition making, text production and learning processes.
The Index team for the exhibition at La Capella is made up of Jasmine Hinks (Curator of Editorial), Martí Manen (Director) and Isabella Tjäder (Curator of Learning).
