"We can't wait for better times” the book launch party!

we can't wait

We invite you to the "We can't wait for better times” launch party, which celebrates six years of projects and will take place at La Poderosa, in Barcelona.

"We can't wait for better times" features the projects that have been seen from 2007-2012 at Homesession as well as pieces in different formats by curators Quim Pujol and Montse Badia and artist Quim Packard. This book is from now on available HERE.

Its presentation on DECEMBER 7 AT 20H30 will gather artists who are, among other, musical artists: it’s above all a celebration of crossover forms and a of dance as a way to invocate futures:

LIVE!

HushHush HushHush is Christopher Kline, American visual artist based in Berlin and works together with the Venezuelan artist Sol Calero. His work was shown at the exhibition Nogueras Blanchard Case Report, curated by L. Sandoval . Both Christopher and Sol have created also a project space in Kreuzberg, Berlin: Kinderhook & Caracas. The HushHush musical project started in 2010 and achieved an amazing reception, with collaborations in Yeasayer tours and numerous performances all over Germany: it’s not that surprising when you know that HushHush launches promises such as converting the stage in a sort of asexual jelly. You’ll have to come to see and check this.

Norman Bambi Norman Bambi is Luc Jolivet. Luc lives and works in Barcelona. A versatile artist, Norman Bambi imagined in 2007, along with Gangpol & Mit and Mami Chan, the Carton Park interactive show for children. In 2007, he also launched the solo album West of space adventures that happily revisits the Spaghetti Western. He is also the author of an LP in collaboration with the barcelonese project Internet 2: You look good today. His relations with the art scene are such, that they become suspicious. Regarding the jelly he might use, we can only put forward that it’s multicolored. DJ set!

Doza Doza is the name of the musical project of Enrique Doza, a Venezuelan artist and cultural activist based in Barcelona. Photographer, artist, collector of magazines and newspapers, fanzines editor, musician and cultural researcher, Enrique opened in 2006 the Gallery/Workshop Tiendaderecha in Gracia, Barcelona, to encourage and promote the work of creators in drawing, photography and fanzines. He also promises a lot, although he fulfills even more.

Andrea Sham Andrea Sham is a Venezuelan - French DJ based in Barcelona. Adept at crossing musics, rhythms and peculiarities, Andrea surfs between acid funky rarities, tamoul electro cumbia and bulgarian exoticism. She’ll instill her passion for quaint and weird compositions as well as for musical patch-ups on Poderosa’s dancefloor! She promises liquified bodies and dance and massive actions in favor of group hysteria.

Gastronomy!

NyamNyam will provide us the opportunity to enjoy their creativity thanks to their special catering!

Una de las primeras mañanas, a project by Julia Gorostidi.

Following the PRE-. group exhibition, we open now the first chapter of the InvitedOneDay 2012 programme with the project of Julia Gorostidi (Switzerland / Spain 1983).
Away from the practice of archive displayed in the projects "oneofthem" or "HowTo" Julia Gorostidi proposes a project and performative installation nature around the act of creation. "One of the first morning" is based of a book from the 80' that collects cosmogonies from various sources in the form of narrative disclosure: thanks to a small-scale staging of the interrelationships and forms of language resources present in these mythologies, Julia Gorostidi moves the original metanarrative to the exhibition's room and the creative process. The artist offers to the public a unique opening in which the project will take shape through a series of actions related to the constituent elements of the installation in progress.
With the collaboration of Paul Gorostidi.

WE'RE OPENING A NEW SPACE!

Since we started Homesession in 2007, we curated 15 artist residencies and produced 30 projects, most of them specially conceived for a domestic place, our home. This has been a really exciting and intense experience to live and share.



That's why we're very glad to open a new space in Barcelona, thanks to which we're going to foster and develop the work we've been realizing till now: residencies and specific exhibition projects. We'll go on using our domestic place as an atypical context for art project. Both locations are actually conceived as complementary and offer from now on the opportunity to receive more residents and increase the visibility and support to the barcelonese emergent art scene, as a non-profit project.



The next project and first exhibition in this new space will be a collective show featuring artists from Barcelona. Stay tuned and save the date: Thursday, April 26, Poble Sec area, Barcelona!

homesession opens a blog, which replaces, from now on, the "news' page"

We've added a blog feature to the homesession website. It replaces the news' page, wich has been used since the launching of the site on summer 2007. Thanks to the blog, we'll offer quicker updates for news, events and any artists' actualities. It will also allow us to present more media and documents in the news, as well as the possibility to comment, search, categorize and tag any content we add on this page.

It will allow visitors to get the whole content referring to an artist, an event, a work etc. We also offer from now on RSS feeds on each post as well as on comments.

The 2007-2008 news remain available of course: to get access to the older content (from July 2007 to October 2008), please go to this page.
