Chalton Gallery presents "Fuga de Capital / Capital flight" an exhibition Artists Francisco Muñoz, Allan Villavicencio, Juan-jose Soto, Pablo Soto, Gaelle Choisne and Pablo Reol.
The exhibition forms part of an ongoing collaboration between these Mexican and French artists. Their project tries to generate a dynamic experimental production of work outside the context of the gallery by using the sites they visited as a studio and as a place of aesthetic value where intervention might or might not happen.
Through sculpture, painting, photography and installation Capital flight revolves around four areas of interest: the remuneration of work, the movement of goods, the cultural capital, and symbols of power.
The works will converge in the gallery as a critical commentary on the hegemonic systems that have shaped the evolution of economic and political models that govern contemporary societies. At the same time, the crossing and displacement divergent realities are assimilated through close aesthetic representations of the tradition of painting and in its materiality exploring other ways of understanding our time.
