Rosa Lleó is a writer and curator based in Barcelona, Spain. She founded the small-scale organisation The Green Parrot in 2014. Since its opening as a non-profit space they have hosted exhibitions, discussions and publications with artists such as Marc Camille Chaimowicz, Shana Moulton, Lúa Coderch, Oriol Vilanova, June Crespo, Daniel Steegmann Mangrané, among others. The space closed its doors last May, and now The Green Parrot is a resident project at the Fundació Tàpies where they will develop a series of time-based events beyond the exhibition format. Lleó’s main field of study and writing is related to historical research and material culture from the 20th century, a tour around anarchist communities, psychedelic music, mid-century design, modern architecture and other fictions, through the work of contemporary artists. She will spend the time in Los Angeles doing studio-visits and getting to know better the city.
