NoguerasBlanchard opened its first space in Barcelona Raval in 2004. The gallery is dedicated to developing a cross-disciplinary international gallery programme, reflecting a variety of conceptually-motivated positions and practices. The gallery’s main goal is to engage in a long-term commitment with the careers of its artists and to be highly involved in the production of works, as well as off-site projects. NoguerasBlanchard have co-produced films, funded biennial projects, artist’s books and publications, working in close alliance with international galleries and institutions.
Individual exhibitions are complemented with collective ones and other projects: en 2011 we launched the first Curatorial Open Call which is a yearly opportunity for the younger curators to bring forward their proposals; other initiatives include our Kitchen Talks where artists, critics, curators and other cultural agents are invited to conduct informal talks in the gallery.
In 2012 NoguerasBlanchard opened a second space in Madrid in order to generate new audiences, contexts and possibilities. Located in Dr. Fourquet, next to the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, and along with other galleries it is a pioneer project with the aim of establishing a nucleus of galleries to which, so far, fifteen have subscribed and which is known as MadridDF. In 2015 the Barcelona venue was moved to a much larger space in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, located in an industrial building together with other galleries and artist studios.
The programme accross two spaces allows Nogueras Blanchard to organize exhibition cycles with guest curators. For instance in 2018-19, ‘Margins of Ten’, curated by Rosa Lleó with artists such as Ad Minoliti or Tamara Henderson, in 2019-20 ‘Swamp of Forever’, curated by Carlos Fernández-Pello with artists such as Daniel Chust Peters or Amie Siegel, in 2020-21 ‘A L I E N T O’, curated by Anna Manubens with artists such as Beatrice Gibson or June Crespo, or in 2021-22 ‘Paired Stories, curated by Joaquín García with artists such André Romão or Rasmus Nilausen.
