Portrait

What are you busy working with at the moment?
It’s a thing that I’m working on. However, in spite of the difficulties caused by the virus, I am currently working on several projects both in Italy and abroad.

What would you say are the common patterns that define your curatorial work?
Surely, the most common pattern consists of: open-mindedness, a certain sensitivity, flexibility, discipline, caution and care, curiosity, and a strong need of discovering and studying.

What are three traits you look for in an emerging artist?
Quality, identity and foresight, among others.

Tell us something from the art world you’d like to see more of and something you’d like to see less of in 2021?
Undoubtedly: more meritocracy, less prejudice.

If you could give a piece of advice for emerging galleries that are starting off in 2021, what would it be?
Even if I’m not the best person in giving advice, surely being focused, avoiding dispersion. I’d say that’s a reasonable request, given the circumstances.

What’s the most valuable lesson you’ve learned while selecting galleries for Swab?
A pleasant positive surprise when galleries realize that – at SWAB – it is very important to highlight the added value, in terms of democracy.

What are you looking forward to seeing in Swab 2021?
A nice weather as always, positive vibes, and something new to be discovered.

Omar

What are you busy working with at the moment?
I just became the international director of YES Contemporary, an organization that supports Salvadorian artists. I’m currently programming for SINDENOMINACION, a project that I founded three years ago in Guadalajara, Mexico. I’m working on various exhibitions that  I will be curating in NY, Brussels, and Mexico. I just started to work on the 10th anniversary edition of UNTITLED Art this upcoming December in Miami Beach.

What would you say are the common patterns that define your curatorial work?
Connecting emerging artists to historical work and presenting them side by side with stablished artists.

What are three traits you look for in an emerging artist?
I look for originality, research intensive practice, and risk taking.

Tell us something from the art world you’d like to see more of and something you’d like to see less of in 2021?
I will like to see more initiatives coming from the artists themselves.
I will like to see less inflated prices on works by emerging artists.

If you could give a piece of advice for emerging galleries that are starting off in 2021, what would it be?
Be open to question the old models associated with commercial galleries and be willing to do pop ups and collaborations with other more experimental spaces that include non profits and artist run spaces.

What’s the most valuable lesson you’ve learned while selecting galleries for Swab?
That we should look at other regions like Eastern Europe and Latin America in search for artists that are relevant to the current international dialogue.

Tell us something a fair must and something a fair must-not for you to find it interesting?
To work on a strong selection of galleries and artists and not to do favoritism. 

What are you looking forward to seeing in Swab 2021?
Young galleries and emerging artists that I’m not familiar with. A sense of discovery!

What are you busy working with at the moment?
Currently I’m preparing the upcoming edition of Art-o-rama that will be held in Marseille from August 27 to 29.

What would you say are the common patterns that define your curatorial work?
I don’t define my work as a curatorial practice, but, I think the common patterns that could define my involvement in the art world are curiosity, exchanges and encounters. 

What are three traits you look for in an emerging artist?
If I should give 3 qualities I look for in artists, not only emerging, I would say honesty, sensitivity, cleverness.

Tell us something from the art world you’d like to see more of and something you’d like to see less of in 2021?
I would like to see more artworks, art events and people and less cancellations.

If you could give a piece of advice for emerging galleries that are starting off in 2021, what would it be?
They have to know what they are doing and why and to carefully take risks.

What’s the most valuable lesson you’ve learned while selecting galleries for Swab?
That I can discover interesting artists and galleries from every part of the world, often rarely seen in others European art fairs.

Tell us something a fair must and something a fair must-not for you to find it interesting?
A fair must be surprising and must-not be boring.

What are you looking forward to seeing in Swab 2021?
I’m looking forward to seeing what I’m not expecting.

Today we speak with… Giuseppe Casarotto

Swab Barcelona is proud to present its selection committee, which will be in charge of casting the international and national galleries that will be part of the program of its 14th edition.

Giuseppe Casarotto, executive engineer and contemporary art collector based in Bergamo, Italy. He is president of ClubGAMEC, a cultural association that promotes and supports the Modern and Contemporary Art Gallery of Bergamo, of whose Club GAMEC Prize he is a founder. Casarotto is also co-founder of Seven-Gravity-Collection, a private group focused on the acquisition of video art and the promotion of young video artists.

1a60cbf7 B4d7 46af 9de0 83a910313e75 1

In a single sentence, how would you describe your collection?
A collection of artist’s gestures, mainly conceptual, that keeps me company for more than 30 years.

What are three traits you look for in an emerging artist?
Talent, original in novelty, multimedia.

What’s a piece of your collection you are currently obsessed with?
The ‘Piece’ is a large jute sack containing coal and some colored glass fragments, held in place by iron wires, by Jannis Kounellis.

If you could give a piece of advice for emerging artists that are starting off in 2021, what would it be?
Do not stop studying and above all attend and visit all possible art exhibitions, do not follow trends and believe in their vocation with help of young curators and young galleries.

What’s the most valuable lesson you’ve learned while selecting galleries for Swab? 
I learned that some galleries after a participation do not repeat the following year, in my opinion a mistake because the main visitors of Swab prefer to have an ongoing relationship with the gallery owners.

Tell us something a fair must and something a fair must-not for you to find it interesting?
Generally speaking for all the international fairs, I think having a precise focus is the right to do, instead of trying to cover everything and more. I believe Swab is on the right track.

What are you looking forward to seeing in Swab 2021?
After a year of reduced attendance at artistic events, I would like to see more booths set-up as exhibitions by one or more artists, not only a presentations of  art-works.

Swab Barcelona is back

-Swab Barcelona is back after the pandemic, presenting a format that combines the on-site with the virtual.

-The Barcelona contemporary art fair will take place from 7 to 10 October 2021, recovering its on-site format in the Italian Pavilion of Montjuïc and presenting online content and digitalised activities in parallel.

-This new edition pays close attention to Eastern Europe, presenting galleries and artistic proposals that are coming to Barcelona for the first time.

-The fair’s curated programmes, such as Swab on Paper, Swab Ephemeral and Swab Performance are consolidated. This year, in addition, Video Box welcomes galleries from the Caribbean under the curatorship of Kino (Mexico City/Madrid), presenting audiovisual discourses on sustainability and climate neutrality.

-The General Program remains the core of the fair, complemented by its sub-section Swab Emerging, which presents galleries with less than five years of experience. This edition incorporates a Latin American Focus, curated by Santiago Gasquet, artist and co-director of the PIEDRAS gallery, which brings to Barcelona the most relevant spaces on the Latin American scene.

-The satellite sections of the General Program return with renewed strength, supporting disciplines and alternative formats: Swab Seed, Swab Reading and MYFAF. 

Barcelona, February 1st.-

Swab Barcelona confirms that its next edition will take place from 7 to 10 October in the Italian Pavilion of Montjuïc. Barcelona’s contemporary art fair recovers its on-site format in a clear declaration of intentions: to present the freshest artistic proposals to emerge after the pandemic. The return of the city’s cultural event par excellence will take place in accordance with the pertinent security measures to claim that culture can and must be safe.

This edition aims to recover the human factor of culture, to restore the city’s enthusiasm for art and to regain its status as a meeting point for the sector and for citizens. Swab’s mission is to support Barcelona’s cultural fabric and place its creative circuit at the epicentre of the international scene, all through the exchanges and interrelationships generated at the fair.

.

The General Program remains the hard core of the fair’s program, and the subsection Swab Emerging takes on special protagonism with the incorporation of a Latin American Focus curated by Santiago Gasquet, artist and co-director of the gallery PIEDRAS (Buenos Aires), importing to Barcelona the most effervescent of the Latin American scene.

In this line, the special program of the edition, always focused on a localised geographical area, sets its focus on Eastern Europe and presents proposals that land in the Catalan capital for the first time.

On the other hand, Swab consolidates its fixed curated programmes, such as Swab Ephemeral, presented in collaboration with Barcelona’s creative factories (Hangar, Fabra i Coats and La Escocesa). Swab Ephemeral presents installation projects by artists residing in the factories, and this year it does so by crossing the walls of the fair and exhibiting work in spaces of La Rambla, a significant approach to the citizens and a revaluation of this area that is so historically and artistically relevant to Barcelona.

The fair also maintains Swab on Paper, curated by Carolina Diez-Cascón, a programme that explores paper as an artistic language, and Video Box, the video art section of Swab, this year curated by Kino (Mexico City/Madrid). The latter will welcome six Caribbean galleries with audiovisual discourses that revolve around sustainability and climate neutrality.

.

Another interesting point of the edition is Swab Seed, the section dedicated to independent and self-managed spaces. This year, following the initiative launched in Swab 2020, the Vila Casas Foundation is sponsoring the participation of four local projects in this programme, promoting the visibility and internationalisation of the Catalan cultural fabric.

Finally, in parallel to the fair in person, Swab will maintain the digitalisation of content launched in 2020 and propose online activities that make the exhibition accessible internationally, such as specialised talks and video tours of collections from all over the world.
 
Collectors’ programme
As every year, SWAB Barcelona promotes an international collecting programme that aims to expand the private collections of its participants and to encourage new collectors by introducing them to the knowledge and acquisition of contemporary art works. This year, the programme will take on a hybrid format, promoting on-site visits to private and public exhibitions in the local context and, at the same time, publishing video tours of relevant collections on the international scene.

The aim of SWAB is for the collector to live an intimate and satisfying experience, to grow during the fair and to get to know artists, gallerists and projects that they had not previously contemplated.

SWAB Awards
Each edition, SWAB Barcelona rewards its participants for their contribution to emerging talent and contemporary art. In 2021 it will continue to award the Fundación Vila Casas photography prize; the MIA prize for the best proposal by a female artist; the Espronceda residency prize; the DKV prize for the best Spanish artist, the MANGO prize for the best emerging artist and the Diezy7 Collection drawing prize, whose winning work is selected by a jury made up of curators and contemporary art critics. 

Acquisitions programme
Another classic feature of the fair is its acquisitions programme, which this year is made up of the Cornex Capital Collection, the Civit Collection, the Lluís Coromina Foundation, the Manuel Expósito Collection, the Bassat Foundation and the Sorigué Foundation, which joined the fair last year.

Local focus
After a 2020 of changes and reinventions, Swab Barcelona is clear that the new edition must focus on sustainable cultural production, which is why Swab Barcelona insists on working with local projects that offer KM0 products. That is why this year, like the two previous editions, Swab Picnic will once again be headed by Flash Flash, a gastronomic institution with a long Catalan tradition.

About SWAB 
Swab Barcelona is a fair that, throughout its 13 editions, has always worked on the same philosophy, that of reflecting the new trends in contemporary art and being a platform both for established galleries and for young, independent spaces that are starting out on the fair circuit. We propose, therefore, a fair with an open objective that presents a select and specialised proposal of the latest on the international art scene.

Art first.

Vote. Vote for art. Vote for culture to be the driving force of our society. 

This month, all eyes have been on one of the most decisive electoral processes in history. That is why today Swab seeks to distance itself from the political class and to pass the loudspeaker to the artists, and it does so by presenting a selection of the American artists of the last edition.
