here + now

New York June 26th - July 3rd, 2019 

hiato projects has the honour to invite the artists Paul Weiner (Denver, US) and Irati Inoriza (Balmaseda, Spain) to HERE+NOW, an event organised by Pablo's Birthday and OFFICE IMPART.

Pablo’s Birthday and OFFICE IMPART are pleased to present “HERE+NOW”, a 7-day exhibition project which aims to raise awareness about how today’s digital age is changing the traditional art gallery model with the increase of online platforms or other examples of digital presence within the arts.


Following a conviction in the necessity to create new collaborative models, a selection of the most distinguished online art platforms currently operating in the market has been invited to showcase their artists at Pablo’s Birthday gallery space.


Participating platforms: Daily Collector, Isthisit?, This Ain’t Art School, ARTPIQ, hiato projects, AXS Art, Freud Monk Gallery will present compelling works as well as a selection of events which will revolve around this topic, “the new digital era”. We are pleased to announce ARTLAND, Daily Plinth and New Art Academy as our media partners. ARTLAND will create and provide a virtual 3D tour of the exhibition, Daily Plinth will showcase a selection of video vignettes from the project, and New Art Academy will include the digital art exhibited in their newborn marketplace for digital art.


Recently new innovative models have arisen that look on how to mediate art today. It is a reaction to the changing society due to new technologies, more possibilities, and a broader visual art market. The art scene opens up and is trying to reach a wider audience. The next generation is eager to try out new, more contemporary solutions that are fun, in demand for different formats and other means to present art.


We are interested in the diversity that new mediums present for showing art, through online galleries, pop-ups, social media based platforms exposing and gathering artists, and young emerging galleries that are vivid, hybrid and engage in this new online-based trend.


How do these different models work, what are their aims, what drives them? This is what we want to ask. How do these new models change and adapt to the art world? What happens with the reception of art? How and where to reach an audience in the digital era?


We believe in collaboration and want to group these new ways and create a vibrant exchange by opening a space for it. For one week a group show will develop with a range of diverse players and will be completed by a dynamic program of discussions, performance, and thematization of these changes in the art world.

circuits of plastic frenzy

Madrid May 11th - May 19th, 2019 

ArtBanchel is a platform that allows to celebrate the common places and the artists’ settlement in the neighbourhood of Carabanchel.

For its 2019 edition, Hiato Projects and D11 propose an aesthetic approach to the mobility processes, underlying the area’s apparently stable environment. Starting also from the celebration and the game, both the collective and the art platform, are delighted to present “Circuits of plastic frenzy”, a communicative network that appropriates of their space in order to reflect on the channels of mobility and transportation, and the conditions that these imposes, both to art workers and objects of the art world, as to the development of the urban structure itself, in which those are included.

The curator Artemio Sánchez, proposes an intervention in the space with “Slot”(2019), a scalextric track that visitors can use for playing and engage the competition process. Through this apparently simple game, the emergence of a metaphoric connection with the logics of the economic and social order, that are supposed to function as ultra-fast, becomes tangible. Projected on a larger scale, it poses the new dimension of urban physical environments folded to the roadways of communication.

Hiato Projects proposes the intervention with the work of Abel Jaramillo “Nos han impuesto hasta el paisaje” part of his serie “No habrá allí lugar para ninguno (There will be no place there for anyone)” (2017). In the series the artist claims the carnival tradition in Extremadura and rural carnival as a metaphor, fact and act that helps to displace the official discourse of history.
In the space, that piece of landscape photographed from a rural road, is presented, stopped in the walls of a white cube, in an industrial building of the neighbourhood that assumed much of the migration from Extremadura during the Franco regime, within the framework of the celebration of a modern urban carnival that takes place right on the limits of the plastic road of the circuit.

White cube> industrial building> road> airport, are the routes on which it is proposed the dialogue within artists, curators and art professionals that are invited by Hiato Projects and D11, through the intangible communication channels. Via the Internet and through a projection, they will speak or show their personal experiences on mobility through the invertebrate circuit of non-places that makes up the art world.
