AL DÍA (WITH ART)

I ask myself what it means to be Al día (up to date) with art, when it has already been decreed that we live in posthistory and that the present is now postpresent. The question I propose is not theoretical, but of a practical nature, since many decisions depend on its answer: which exhibitions to visit? what works to see? which artists to recommend? With these initial questions come others, also important, although not easy to answer: how much information is needed to be up to date? where can you get up-to-date information? Who has the news of the day?

‘EL CHICO' LABORATORY OF THE NEW GENERATION - INTERVIEW WITH JAVIER APARICIO

Located on the border between La Latina and Embajadores neighbourhoods, inside a 60’s trade complex, El Chico is one of the main spaces of the emerging scene that is occupying Madrid’s centre. Space is just a general and practical nomenclature. Founder and director Javier Aparicio (Mexico 1985) explains that the limits of this project are not that important, but if we insist on defining it: "El Chico is, for now, a Podcast with a space," he explains. "The podcast has become an approximation tool for visitors.”

PEPE MAR AT THE DAVID CASTILLO GALLERY

Pepe Mar is a cognoscente of materiality at the forefront of social fluency and personal obsession. Mar excavates the ritual narratives inherent in secondhand stores, science fiction, celebrity, commercial design, and social media to create abstract and anthropomorphic barometers of contemporary culture.  The artist’s work, available at the David Castillo Gallery, is committed to a personal and universal exploration of cultural alienation.

THE PERIPHERY OF THE AGONY: TERESA MARGOLLES

Mexican artist, Teresa Margolles, transfers the space of death to the sphere of art, a metaphor par excellence of the border, of a limit that paradoxically is reached only when we are no longer and, therefore, we will no longer be able to tell it. An attempt to counter addiction and impotence in the face of daily tragedies such as gender violence or the exploitation of illegal immigration, caused by the inaction of governments and by a melodramatic or sensationalistic media exploitation.

ALCHEMIC CHANTS BY YANIRA COLLADO

“My work attempts to assemble a visual language that reconciles the process in which the history of this information is recorded, stored, and retrieved." Emerson Dorsch presents Alchemic Chants/ Reliquias Fragmentadas, Yanira Collado’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. A platform nearly covers the gallery floor, while objects and paintings punctuate the slim corridor around it. The platform echoes the footprint of a small house, one for living and for working.
