Results of Encura VII: Curatorial Research Residency between Barcelona and Madrid

The selection committee composed of Tania Pardo, director of CA2M Museum; Claude Bussac, director of artistic studies at Casa de Velázquez; Anna Manubens, director of Hangar; and Veronica Valentini, responsible for international research programs and residencies at Hangar; along with Emma Brasó, from the hablarenarte team, has decided to award the Encura VII curatorial research residency grant to Sergi Álvarez Riosalido with the project Swiftly Arose and Spread Around Me. The jury has also decided to give a special mention to the projects of Cristina Ramos Gonzales, Kleo La Faraona, and Aurora Carmenate Díaz.

Swiftly Arose and Spread Around Me is a curatorial research project that delves into the realms of viscosity, stickiness, and slime in their dynamic states, aiming to uncover their political, ecological, and affective significance as mediating elements. Inspired by a verse by Walt Whitman in which saliva connects the infinite universe with moss and worm, and referencing authors like Danez Smith, who activates the poetics of organic and lubricating flows between bodies, as well as Karin Anna Pittman, Karen Barad, or Laura Tripaldi from science, this project aims to generate sticky thinking and apply it to how we position ourselves in the world.

We sincerely thank all the participants in the call and wish Sergi Álvarez Riosalido the best for his residency at Hangar, La Casa de Velázquez, CA2M, and hablarenarte.

Barcelona and Madrid, April 25, 2024.
