The 2022 exhibitions programme in the neighbourhoods will have 10 itinerant contemporary proposals.
Temporals is a permanent circuit of travelling exhibitions in Barcelona's network of civic centres. The programme is part of the Pla de Drets Culturals promoted by the Barcelona City Council to democratise access to culture and cultural production. It seeks to interact with the public and communities closest to each facility through activities and experiences that turn authors, cultural managers, organisations and neighbours into active cultural agents.
The programme has three main goals: to consolidate a quality contemporary art programme in the neighbourhoods, to create another platform to support the creative sector, and to promote complementary activities and mediation around the exhibitions that encourage the creation of new audiences.
The idea of the circuit is based on itinerancy given that, as a general criterion, each of the proposals must be exhibited in at least two civic centres, and each space may programme a maximum of three. This year, 13 local facilities from nine of the city's districts will be part of the event: the Convent of Sant Agustí, Can Basté, Casa Elizade, Navas, Joan Oliver 'Pere Quart', Pere Pruna, Cotxeres de Sants, Casinet d'Hostafrancs, Guinardó, Baró de Viver, Pati Llimona, Sant Andreu and Farinera del Clot. The exhibitions will have a minimum duration of 45 days and may be extended up to 60 days.
For 2022, the selection committee has chosen 10 proposals: Pasado-mañana, by the Colectivo Juan Nadie; Memòria roja, by Àurea Estellé Alsina; Firma, by Paula Artés; Our Garden, by Román Yñán; La criartura de l'Illa de Jekyll, a group show by Daniel Gasol, Laura Llaneli, Rafael Arocha and Violeta Mayoral curated by Diana Padrón; Bon dia // Bona nit, by the collective Lluvia Ácida; On van elles II, by the collective Venecia Flúor; Rizomes, by Gil Gelpi and Bàrbara Puigventós; Tengui, tengui, tengui... Falti, by Albert Gusi; and Cave Canem, another community project by Fernando Cremades, Mireia Pons, Azahara Cerezo, Levi Orta and Jordi Ferreiro curated by Gerard Galián.
The complete programme of exhibitions and activities will last one year, ending on 9 January 2023.
