Juan Canela (born, 1980, works and lives in Barcelona) is the curator of one of Tabakalera’s autumn exhibitions, the one entitled Cale, cale, cale! Caale!!!. This exclamation – which can be translated “Autumn, autumn, autumn! Autuuuuumn! – refers to a magic charm against storms, a southern Italian tradition. The exhibition questions the place of magic, ritual, or the irrational in relation to nature and art.

Cadabra-Abra is a cycle that looks back on the relationship between cinema and magic, the occult, spirituality, rituals, the sacred, incantations, and apparitions-vanishings.
