Under the supervision of Imma Prieto and Frederic Montornés, this section comprises a selection of artists representative of nine different galleries throughout Barcelona. The artists were grouped together to establish a unified nexus within the city's current artistic program, providing multiple perspectives and insights into some of Barcelona's most interesting creators. This section asks, "What does being in or out mean?" and empowers a debate through a diverse group of artists and artworks. 

For this second edition, following last year's conceptual framework, we considered how to bring into focus that which is outside the field of vision, and that the same time, break with a temporal discursive line. We want this central mechanism to be made visible through fragments that break away and connect to the creation process. This can be materialized through works, documents, notes or even new artistic expressions that emerge after the work itself is completed.

Focus Mediterranean

Curated by Xavier de Luca, is naturally linked to FOCUS MAGREB, the program that took place in Swab’s 2016 edition and featured 8 art projects from the Maghreb region. That program’s positive reception by the public, participants, and all collaborators has made possible this year’s MEDITERRANEAN FOCUS, which offers in-depth research into the entire Euro-Mediterranean region, widening its focus and including other proposals of key importance in the understanding current Mediterranean world.

Geographically, the Mediterranean is a space of natural connection between several realities, configured by various factors that model them and render them unique from each other. It is precisely this richness that this proposal seeks to showcase, giving visibility to the artistic and cultural initiatives that are taking place in different Mediterranean cities. This proposal aims to link with SWAB’s interest in digging deeper, year after year, into new contexts and artistic disciplines, thus enriching its contents and reaching new audiences.
