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

Gallery TPW has commissioned three short texts in response to artist Luis Jacob’s explorations of place-making, the visual regimes of the city, and the force of photographs. Join us for a Saturday afternoon discussion based on our third text: "Public photographic spheres (Reflections on the making of historical photographic exhibitions today)" by Jorge Ribalta. The session will feature time to read together followed by conversation with Kim Simon and Luis Jacob.


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.

Jorge Ribalta is an artist, researcher, editor and independent curator. He has made solo shows at, among others, galleries Zabriskie (New York and Paris), Casa sin Fin (Madrid) and angelsbarcelona (Barcelona). He was curator of exhibitions (selection): Universal Archive. The condition of the document and the modern photographic utopia (MACBA, Barcelona, 2008), A Hard, Merciless Light. The Worker-Photography Movement, 1926-1939 (Museum Reina Sofia, Madrid, 2011), and Not Yet. On the Reinvention of Documentary and the Critique of Modernism (Museum Reina Sofia, Madrid, 2015). He was Head of Public Programs at the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art between 1999 and 2009.
