Habitat Conversations: Jorge Ribalta

Gallery TPW
170 St Helens Ave

In conjunction with Luis Jacob’s exhibition Habitat, Gallery TPW commissioned three short texts in response to the artist’s explorations of place-making, the visual regimes of the city, and the force of photographs.

This is the last of three in a series of Saturday-afternoon discussions based on these commissioned texts. Each session will begin with time to read together, followed by conversation with guest facilitators.

Text by Jorge Ribalta, facilitated by Luis Jacob and Kim Simon

In this text by Jorge Ribalta, the Barcelona-based curator reflects on his recent curatorial work on historical photography exhibitions and the construction of the poetic, epistemic, and political meanings of a public photographic sphere.

Previously head of public programs at Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA), Jorge Ribalta is an independent artist, researcher, editor, and curator.
