NoguerasBlanchard opened its first space in the Barcelona Raval in 2004. The programme evolves around conceptually motivated practices which offer an interdisciplinary view. NoguerasBlanchard is largely interested in keeping long-term relationships with the artists so as to accompany them in their development of an artistic language as well as in the production of their work along the years.
Individual exhibitions are complemented with collective ones and other projects.
In 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 their Kitchen Talks, where artists, critics, curators and other cultural agents are invited to conduct informal talks in the gallery.
In September 2012 NoguerasBlanchard opened a second venue in Madrid in order to attract new people, contexts and possibilities. It is located next to the MNCARS 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 Catalonia, since October 2015, NoguerasBlanchard occupies a 540-sqm venue in L'Hospitalet de Llobregat, located in an industrial building together with other galleries and artist studios.
From Thu. 17th to Sat. 19th Sept. / 10 am - 8

I Hope I'm Loud when I'm Dead (2018) opens with the voice of the artist describing a panic attack on the London underground while images such as Brexit, Donald Trump’s election, ecological agony, the Grenfell tower fire, street riots or refugees’turn away flicker on screen in an accelerated, spasmodic and sensory editing. The title of the exhibition is taken from the artist's physical description of her body on alert “I can still feel my body except it’s like? the skin has gone. It’s all nerve. Edgeless. Pulsating. There’s intense breathlessness.”
I Hope I’m Loud when I’m Dead deals with the tension caused by the porosity between the harshness of global newsfeed and the precarious feeling of protection found in intimacy. The film explores how the intersection between panic in the face of the future anticipated by current events and the demand for a liveable and viable future is made sustainable.
