Exhibition ‘Things Things Say’, Fabra i Coats: Contemporary Art Centre of Barcelona until 17 January 2021.

An exhibition with works by Adrià Julià, Annette Kelm, James N. Kienitz Wilkins, Sarah Ortmeyer, Eulàlia Rovira, Francesc Serra i Dimas, Stuart Whipps, Haegue Yang, as well as meaningful things from the Friends of Fabra i Coats archive.

Things Things Say’ springs from the past of Fabra i Coats—an industrial complex dedicated for over 100 years to the manufacturing of cotton thread. Taking on the genre of the ‘it-narrative’ in 18th century English literature—as well as the approaches of object journalism and microhistory—the exhibition tacks back-and-forth between exceptionally normal things and the extraordinary global narratives of labour, obsolescence, and the industrialisation of nature, that they trigger.
