THE BULEVARD SHOW \nWURMKOS | LIVING BRIDGES

THE BULEVARD SHOW
WURMKOS | LIVING BRIDGES

The Bulevard Show 2023 presents the first performative intervention of Living Bridges, a project developed with Wurmkos, which intervenes in a threshold, a crack in the urban texture created by the demolition of a building designed by artist and architect Maks Velo (1935–2020). Living Bridges intervenes precisely in the space-time that exists between demolition and reconstruction. 

Wurmkos is a group of artists founded in 1987 in Sesto San Giovanni (Milan). It was inspired by Franco Basaglia, the psychiatrist who, at the end of the 1970s, strived to close psychiatric hospitals in Italy. 

Venue: In front of the demolished Maks Velo building (next to Bulevard/Destil)

DIARIES 2023

DIARIES 2023

Bulevard is pleased to present the second year of Diaries: a quest exploring collective artistic production in Albania, from the 1990s across the first decade of the 2000s, through the lens of Lindart, the first and only association of women artists in Albania. The first Diaries exhibition in 2022 was conceived as the beginning of a process, rather than an end result. Bulevard opens the second Diaries “entry” by combining an exhibition with a symposium. Both iterations interweave documentation and storytelling, where reimagined art historical narratives, engaged in artistic practice, friendship, and mutual support become visible across and within political and social borders.

An exhibition featuring: Lindart and the Albanian Women Artists Association: Eleni Laperi, Ikbal Beli, Merita Selimi, Suela Muça, Suzana Varvarica Kuka, Xheneta Kadillatri with Lala Meredith-Vula, Marina Grzinić, Tanja Ostojić, and Andreja Dugandžić, Lana Čmajčanin, and Silvi Naçi 

A symposium with: Valentina Bonizzi, Andreja Dugandžić, Eleni Laperi, Ëremire Krasniqi, Ermir Hoxha, Danijela Dugandžić, Dimitra Gitska, Hana Halilaj, Jelena Petrović, Jonida Gashi, Lala Meredith-Vula, Lana Čmajčanin, Marina Gržinić, Raino Isto, Riet van der Linden, Tanja Ostojić, Silvi Naçi, Sokol Çunga.

LULE MIMOZA

LULE MIMOZA

Feminism and LGBTQI+ struggles are nothing without representation—political, cultural, and aesthetic. This year, on March 8, International Women Day, five artists—Bora Baboçi, Lindart, Matilda Odobashi, Edit Pula, and Gerta Xhaferaj—have created posters for the protest. 

Including political demands, everyday challenges, symbolic tensions, and much more, the posters mark a moment and space where the visual, the verbal, and the mundane come together in a collective movement. 

The posters will be distributed free of charge at the march in Tirana on 8 March, at Mother Teresa Square.
