"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!

Sunita Prasad. artist talk.

We are glad to invite you to meet Sunita Prasad, artist in residency at Homesession during March and April: she will present her current projects and will show a selection of videos.

Sunita Prasad's projects draw from her research on social histories and multiple publics, while inserting heightened fictional elements or hyperbolized versions back into those histories and communities online and in public space. She has a special interest in works that are activated live and in physical touch. Based in Brooklyn, New York, Sunita is originally from Syracuse NY and received a BFA in Film & TV from New York University and an MFA in Photography from the Rhode Island School of Design. Her works have been shown in galleries, festivals, and performance venues internationally.

This event is part of the festival Miradas de mujeres.

Artist talk: Saturday, March 16 at 19h
Homesession, C/ Creu dels Molers 15. 08004 Barcelona

Save the date: April 19, opening of Sunita's exhibition.

Augustin Rebetez. After dark & more


Homesession & Elclimamola, two independent arts spaces located in Barcelona, are glad to present jointly a specific project by swiss artist Augustin Rebetez, in the framework of the Videoart Festival Screen from Barcelona and of the Poble Sec independent space circuit, which is organized on May 24th.

Augustin Rebetez will present at Homesession Studio and at Elclimamola an exhibition project based on photography and stop-motion videos, with the premiere of a new video. Twisting narratives and visual connotations through his personal and convulsive sense of humor rather than through a relaxed wittiness, Augustin Rebetez builds a singular visual universe where the recreational feature combines with a rather dark atmosphere.
We encourage you to discover his work during the opening which will take place succesively in both places.

Thursday, May 24th:

19h00 - Homesession Studio: opening primera part exhibition project (photography & video)

21h00 - Elclimamola: opening second part exhibition project (vídeos ; premiere of a new piece) and action by Augustin Rebetez

Homesession Studio: C/ Creu dels Molers, 15. BCN

Elclimamola: C/ Salva 45. BCN

Cháchara. 2012/02/09



EN

Cháchara describes itself as "a talk at a given place and time". Homesession is glad to be this given place and to receive, with Cháchara's organizers, three British artists on Thursday, February 9: Maurice Carlin, Gary Leddington and David Price share an afternoon with us, just at the beginning of their residency at La Escocesa, to talk about their interests.

Like in every Cháchara, we invite people to share things that don't relate with their practice at all (or maybe they do) and we'll spend the afternoon eating delicious quiches.

Cháchara es defineix com "una xerrada en algún lloc i en algún moment". Homesession té el plaer de ser aquest lloc i, amb els organitzadors de Cháchara, d'acollir dijous 9 de febrer a tres artistes britànics: Maurice Carlin, Gary Leddington i David Price ens acompanyen una tarda per parlar dels seus interessos, aprofitant l'inici de la seva residència a La Escocesa.

Com per les altres chácharas, invitem la gent a compartir algunes coses que no tinguin que veure amb allò seu (o potser sí) i passarem la tarda compartint delicioses quiche!

homesession invites: Juan Duque 's project presentation, 06/03 - 7pm

Juan Duque and homesession will have the pleasure to present the intervention the artists's been working on during his residency: EVASION.

Juan Duque

Displaying objects and elements linked to a landscape iconic visual representation as well as to maps ideological representations, Juan Duque's intervention at homesession deals with the conception of landscape as an interface between place, individual memory and chance.

The intervention in different spaces and places conveys for me a re-activation of the memory.
As a recurrent mark, every time I start a project, textures and images appear from the surfaces I'm working on. These recurrent marks remind me of landscapes that I have already experienced. Is it a topographical fixation or perhaps a predestination?
What we think will last forever, might stop some day... and new lines, reflections and layers will emerge, blurring the path. With my work at 'homesession art residency', I want to challenge the determined by implementing simple actions on simple materials.
Juan Duque

We're very pleased to invite you to join the presentation of EVASION on March 6th at 7pm.

When: March 6th at 7pm
Where: homesession

Ramon Guimaraes at Espace Cultural Ample Gallery / Barcelona, from 26-03 to 05-06

The Espace Cultural Ample Gallery presents the individual show of Ramón Guimaraes: Identity Code.

Ramón Guimaraes has developed during last years works focusing on clichés, stereotypes and human relations, always referring to the identity as one of its most important guidelines.

Working with medias such as video, photography, drawings and objects, Ramon Guimaraes uses daily life as a raw material for his work, transforming everydaylife actions, sentences or thoughts, touristic or cultural clichés into real performances. This work allows him to achieve a deconstruction of what this ordinary material implies about us, our feelings and our relations with the outer world.

Deconstruction which remain obvious in the use he makes of the masks, disguise and role-plays gathering ressources such as comedy, surprise and alarming atmosphere. Converting himself (say, his character) into more or less typical or recognizable stereotypes, he plays with the audience and seat ourselves in front of the things as they are: full of prejudices, fake appearances and deceptive freedom. From all the angles Ramon Guimaraes imagines, the audience will attend an image of the way we remain totally stuck in a social conception that's incompatible with the individual freedom we're convinced to have reached.

Where: Espace Ample Gallery, Barcelona
When: opening 26/03 at 7pm. Exhibition from 26/03 to 05/06
