On June 22, Tabakalera will open the exhibition Drawn by the Pulse by Rosa Barba. The show, curated by Cristina Cámara, will open doors at 8pm, and will be on view until October 14. 

The work of Rosa Barba (Italian born, living in Germany) contests and recasts truth and fiction, myth and reality, metaphor and material to a disorientating degree, which ultimately extends into a conceptual practice.

At the center of her solo exhibition is Barba’s new filmic sculpture Drawn by the Pulse (2018), produced by Tabakalera. This piece, from which the show takes its title, is part of a new work series on the subject of the artist’s ongoing research on Astronomy and Cinema. Filmed at the Harvard College Observatory, it brings together astronomic discoveries and cinematic techniques into one enigmatic piece.
