≪From our office window we can hear the screams of the Quaker parrots, a species from Argentina that has adapted very well to the Mediterranean climate and lives together with other local birds since more than a decade. It is a colourful element that contrasts with the local fauna of pigeons, doves and sparrows. Similar to what the Argentinian parrot did, we have to adapt to certain conditions through other economies and other ways of doing, linked to generosity and to a close relation with the artists, the audience and a critical discourse»
The Green Parrot is a small-scale organisation dedicated to contemporary art practices. Since its opening in 2014, it has established itself as a reference for non-profits with a series of exhibitions, publications and activities with local and international artists. The project has also been in residency at the Fundació Antoni Tàpies from 2017-2019 producing a series of programmes and events in collaboration with other institutions and the City Council. Its aim is to create a space for dialogue and exhibition in the city of Barcelona working very close to artists and thinkers.
