Swab Emerging is a subsection of the General Program, presenting galleries with less than five years of trajectory.
The galleries participating in this program explore alternative formats of production and management and, within the framework of the fair, present artistic proposals that seek to generate a field for the construction of knowledge, discourses and identity given by the characteristics of the context each one of them inhabits.
Focus LATAM, a section curated by Santiago Gasquet, co-director of PIEDRAS (Buenos Aires), is presented as a platform for exchange between management projects that promote recent productions by Latin American artists.
The section brings together six spaces that operate in the cities of Lima, Santiago de Chile, Buenos Aires, Salta and Madrid, and focuses on the richness of the different ways of carrying out models of representation and promotion of young artists in each context.
Swab Seed showcases ten independent and artist-run spaces that share experimentation as a common denominator. Swab Seed seeks to give visibility to new platforms and proposals that are shaking up the contemporary scene.
SOLO by Vila Casas
SOLO by Fundació Vila Casas is a program curated by independent curators Carla Gimeno Jaria and Margot Cuevas, in collaboration with Fundació Vila Casas.
For this 2023 edition, SOLO by Fundació Vila Casas invites Half House (Barcelona), FOC (Barcelona), Cultural Rizoma (Celrà) and Espai 19 (Barcelona). During the days of the fair, these four self-managed spaces, which are set up as non-profit projects, present individual exhibition proposals that together generate a portrait of contemporary artistic trends in the local context. Based on different materializations, each project will allow us to glimpse the ways of working and the idiosyncrasies of each space, claiming different ways of making and presenting artistic practice.
My First Art Fair
Selection of three young contemporary art galleries, under two years old, that still have not participated in any international fair. Swab offers this space free of charge to help promote new emerging galleries.
Home/Land: Recent Moving Images from Southeast Asia
HOME/LAND, curated by Alfonse Chiu, presents snapshots of recent moments that see the flow of land and body in Southeast Asia as an extension of capital and as a marker for the changing relationship with nature, society, and the universe that the nations of Southeast Asia have. Drawing a line of sight—and comparison—between choreographies of migrations, extractions, and development, this selection of moving images reflects on the strange terrains of Southeast Asia and its stranger journey as an unfamiliar homeland for many.
