Site-Specific Conversation’s collaboration with Barcelona Gallery Weekend continues with a series of conversations that will be published weekly over the summer.
Once again, the event centres on a novel this year: Just Kids, by Patti Smith. In doing so, it highlights the process of ‘growing together’ and delves into artists’ beginnings, professionalisation, coexistence with the art market’s demands, and collaboration dynamics, among other elements.
Today we are chatting to artists Luis Bisbe de la Fuente and Alberto Peral García and gallerist Sebastián Rosselló, the co-director of Galería Alegría. This is the first time they are working on an exhibition project together, and the whole process is based on the affection, respect and, above all, trust they have cultivated through years of friendship. The carte blanche Sebastián has given the artists has enabled them to coexist in the space, with more time than they would usually have, so that they can size it up and generate a dialogue that goes beyond the realm of the object.
SSC You’ve given them carte blanche.
