UNIDAD MÍNIMA: A COLLECTIVE EXHIBITION THAT PUTS IN QUESTION CONTEMPORARY ART FORMS OF EXHIBITION AND MANAGEMENT
Until November 13th at Espacio El Dorado (Bogotá, Colombia), international collective exhibition Unidad Mínima (Minimum Unit) is exhibited. The exposition is formed by a wide range of Latin American artists and spaces from the region -UV Estudios (Buenos Aires), Sagrada Mercancía (Santiago de Chile), KM 0.2 (San Juan de Puerto Rico) and Espacio El Dorado-.
Starting from composition minimal units -a line, a word, a brick, an individual, a sound, etc.-, the exhibition aims to illustrate the infinite possibilities that all these elements possess: the minimum unit as a potential element. "Each of these elements contains the possible potential of a world willing to open up in the interaction with the parties. These units, in tireless negotiation, contain latent universes”, explains Unidad Mínima curatorial text.
Thus, the exhibition explores not only unit’s potential to converge with others of their own nature, but the capable metamorphosis that a single element extraordinary behavior projects: "Only one of them that behaves differently opens all a field of possibilities, like the brick that is thrown and breaks a limit, or the cell that multiplies to create another body ".
As for the exhibition itself, it is an extension or manifestation of the dialogue that these spaces take from their own countries in relation to collaborative forms of work. Ultimately, Unidad Mínima, as the galleries explained, "thinks on Latin America and the Caribbean possibilities of independent cultural management in."
Under a critical vision over contemporary art management and realization, the exhibition aims to pose new forms of management, exhibition and circulation of contemporary art. And what better than doing it from practice.
