The Carrillo Gil Art Museum, in Mexico, presents a large collective exhibition
The Carrillo Gil Art Museum (MACG), in Mexico, inaugurated on Friday, June 15th, Los artefactos subordinados. Objeto, cuerpo y acción en la colección MACG(Subordinated artifacts. Object, body and action at the MACG collection), a collective exhibition with works by Allora and Calzadilla, Eduardo Abaroa, Marcos Kurtycz, Gustavo Artigas, Cristian Segura, Melquiades Herrera, Esperanza Hippopotamus, Raffael Rheinsberg and Héctor Zamora.
For the construction of the exhibition, nine pieces were selected that reflect on the possibility of the artist to interconnect his corporeality, or that of others, an element that, thanks to the interaction with performance, becomes an artifact.
Carlos Palacios, curator of the exhibition, explained: "This review of the -MACG- collection expands the research towards the documentary collection of the museum, relating objects with documentary histories of performative manifestations made throughout its history".
The works that constitute the subordinate artifacts. Object, body and action in the MACG collection are multidisciplinary: from art objects to installations and from videos to photographs. Among them are Pasado Promisorio, by Eduardo Abaroa; Emergency Exit, Gustavo Artigas; Wel und Dinge (The world under the things), of Raffael Rheinsberg; Paracaidista Av. Revolución 1608 bis, by Héctor Zamora; Notas para la gravedad y la gracia (Notes for gravity and grace), by Juan José Gurrola; Cycleaccorddion, by Carlos Zerpa; and El Maquinazo, jornadas de performances en el MACG (El Maquinazo, days of performances at the MACG), of a group of artists.
The exhibition can be visited until September 16 at the Carrillo Gil Art Museum located on Av. Revolución at 1608, Mexico City.
