A one-night screening at MACBA Barcelona, the program featured seven short videos made by artists from across the Americas. Spells Upon The Land highlights humanity’s consequential relationship to the earth. Each of the artworks in this program conjure worlds, and find the rhythm and rhyme of the landscape through acts of transformation and poetic interpretation. The program includes a snowy act of alchemy, a radioactive garden in Fukushima, an agitated animal traversing the Mexican landscape of the prickly cactus, moving to the rhythm of the landscape and learning from the white birds in Guadeloupe, a hypnotic dance casting a spell in Puerto Rico, and finally an AI-enhanced imagining of layers of migration, fire damage and ineffectual politics affecting the people of the Colombian Amazon. The screening took place November 2023.

What started as ‘What are they?’ has become: ‘What are they good for?’ KADIST International Director Joseph del Pesco presented KADIST’s NFT research during LOOP in November 2022. He introduced KADIST’s growing NFT collection, and discussed strategies and practice for collecting institutions and artists. "While NFTs are likely here to stay, we’re just starting to understand their potential—beyond the initial hype of the collectibles market—for contemporary art."

“The KADIST collection is panoramic and adventurous, in other words geographically expansive and risk-tolerant. It’s also more culturally diverse than many of the world’s museum collections,” said Joseph Del Pesco, International Director. “Our mission is to support the voice of artists, toward a progressive, global and interconnected culture. When one of our advisors introduces an artist, via their artwork, it’s just the beginning—a seed is planted, that often grows into a new field of inquiry via our programs.”
