The Curatorial Collective for Public Art (CCPA) develops curatorial formats for the production, mediation and representation of art in public space, public art and urban interventions. As an agency for site-specific, transdisciplinary, critical and transitory public art, it approaches curatorial practice as a collective endeavor on the intersection of concept, organization and design. Through long-term collaborations and in reciprocal processes with artists, CCPA experiments with innovative curatorial frameworks for artworks in public space – be it a festival for urban interventions, an artistic funfair or an exhibition of ephemeral public art. CCPA was established in 2020 and consists of Yael Sherill, Lianne Mol, Julia Kawka and José Délano. The collective combines the members’ collective interests and expertise in curatorial practice, exhibition and stage design, cultural mediation, research, dramaturgy and project management in the field of site-specific theater, transdisciplinary art in public space and socially engaged practices. CCPA is an independent, nomadic collective without a fixed space, working across a variety of localities and collaborating with institutional partners and project spaces. Although based in Berlin, the collective works translocally, combining the international networks of its members. The team first worked together in 2019 in the frame of the project “Tracks in […]

The REAKTOR is a privately run transdisciplinary art institution based in Vienna that opened in February 2018 on the premises of what was once the Grand Etablissement Gschwandner. Here, on a total surface area of 1,200 m2, various forms of artistic expression are brought together and made accessible to the public. The focus is on film, space-defining art and music theatre, new music, jazz and experimental interpretations of contemporary music. The defining themes of the programming are situated on the event horizon of the existence of the individual and society, expressed through art in ways that are as unusual as they are transnational. As a result, audiences are treated to a modern-day arts salon of a highly entertaining kind. The REAKTOR is a showcase, workshop, initiator, principal, and producer, all rolled into one. The highest of artistic aspirations and, consequently, critical scrutiny, exploration, enjoyment and aesthetics complement one another at the REAKTOR. Audiences are invited to consider a change of perspective through an entertaining mix of autonomous positions, sensory experiences, and surprising crossovers. Both the programming and the presentation are designed to enable audiences to gain their own personal and individual insights into the featured works.

PLA, Interactivity, testing sessions and other attitudes. Enric Socias at Espai sant Marc
Like in a perfect circle, I do return to the place where my first exhibition took place, Sineu. One of the many perceptible differences between those two biographical moments lies in the fact that I actually understand the role of the spectator as a participant in the work’s process. In a sort of symbiotic relationship, visitors will enjoy with the different works exhibited in Espai Sant Marc while they reinforce them with their experience. An appropiate way to understand my work is noticing the importance of code in it. I talk about code not only as technological scripting but as a meaning that is not going to be understood without taking in account the required elements. I believe spectators have a work to do putting together the different pieces that an artwork places in front of them. If not, they would only achieve an incomplete, although valid, experience, because that’s what we find day after day: multitude of codes that we use to replicate without understanding them, as the one singing the Quran phonetically. Even that, with the increase of technical complexity in my latests years’ projects, my opacity towards the spectators has lowered, as the enjoyment of them would return the efforts invested. Anyway, there are […]

CHANTAL PEÑALOSA – There’s something about the weather of this place
BEST PRACTICE is pleased to announce a new show of works by Tecate-based artist Chantal Peñalosa. The exhibition will bring together current and past works in photography, painting, and video that broadly address the sociopolitical tensions that pervade the U.S./Mexico border through investigations of the mutual clime, shared firmament, and bifurcated landscape of this charged region. The camera is aimed at the sky to create photo diptychs that record the subtle shifts in cloud formations that happen in the time it takes to cross the U.S/Mexico border. A video records a performance work made on Avenida México, a street in Tecate, Baja California, that runs along the border between Mexico and the United States in which the artist assumed eye-level height with a USA border patrol truck parked on a small hill to survey the border by sitting atop the roof of a house. She first sits with her back to the truck and describes the scenery to it; she then turns to face the truck creating a one-sided dialogue with her action. Another video work reconciles a childhood memory of a colloquialism that explains, through myth, the phenomenon of condensation trails formed by the engines of aircraft “crossing the […]
OPEN CALL FOR ARTWORK: STIFF 2021
We are inviting visual and new media artists to submit their artwork for the exhibition program of the 8th Student International Film Festival. For the last seven years, STIFF Festival has produced a rich accompanying program that elaborates and complements the thematic focus of its film program. With the emphasis on contemporary art practices, STIFF’s exhibition program gathers artists from all over the globe, dealing with relevant social, political, as well as intimate aspects of everyday life. This year the festival is giving attention to the Body, and the exhibition program aims to explore socially relevant ways of interpreting the body in a contemporary environment saturated with images. What is the relationship between a body and the moving image? Are we our bodies or is the body just merchandise we trade on the labor market and offer in intimate relationships? How to position ourselves in a world where objects move more freely than people? When is our body an instrument of knowledge, interaction, and intimacy with the world, and when is it a space of discomfort and restriction? Do we allow our bodies to be playful? We encourage a view of the body as productive and creative, the body as a process that […]
The Earth Of (Part Two): A Moment is A Reckoning
with Andrew Helton Spring 2021 | Virtual Program | 3/15/2021 – 4/24/2021 http://www.artslettersandnumbers.com/the-earth-of-part-two-a-moment-is-a-reckoning Why reelaborate today a concept of the archive? In a single configuration, equally technical and political, ethical and juridical?…No one ever renounces—and this is the unconscious itself—the appropriation of power over the document, over its detention, retention or its interpretation. -Jacques Derrida Reports that say something hasn’t happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns—the ones we don’t know we don’t know. -Donald Rumsfeld (on alleged weapons of mass destruction in Iraq) A moment is a rupture. It is a point at which the machinery (whether it’s time, domestic life, politics, civil obedience, work, health, etc.) we are all a part of breaks. Something becomes an object at the moment of rupture, when it is no longer (however briefly) a part of the machine. This is why moments become so important to us. It is a kind of freedom. A moment is a chance to feel as […]
Breaking the Writing Process: Writing the Meditative Poem
The Quarantine Exhibition
Solidarity at this difficult time is an important issue! “Quarantine Exhibition” is a virtual exhibition during fragile times. The COVID-19 pandemic changes our lives significantly day after day. Despite the current crisis, art is demonstrating its force. In April, after lockdown measures were put in place around the world, our immediate impulse was to bring together artists, friends, peers and professionals from any geographic location, with no limits on age, nationality, or career stage, through the format of a truly open, open call. The artists were motivated to submit a statement and an artwork in any medium of their choice, transmitting their immediate impressions during quarantine. With a total of 445 submissions, the open call shifted into a plethora of voices and impulses, as well as a cartography of the global sentiment. With a variety of strong and compelling works, the selection process became simultaneously exciting and challenging. Space52 and the selection committee have selected 60 artists that will be included in the exhibition. Selected international artists are invited to engage in a series of online exhibitions, eventually staging a gallery exhibition. Paying tribute to the solidarity shown by artists and institutions, at a time when art is suffering fully […]
