People who have saved this event:


Chalton Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition 'mi _ _c _ _' by Mexican artists: Eric Valencia, Israel Uurmer, Wendy Cabrera Rubio, Romeo Mijangos and Daniel Aguilar Ruvalcaba.


mi_ _c_ _ is a show about the obstacles, the traps, the difficulties and the adventures that artists experience in their process of production. When we attend an exhibition usually we encounter an annoying neutrality that stands for metaphysical cleanliness. The pieces appear in a scenario that resembles more a warehouse than a laboratory of experimentation with disasters, doubts an paradoxes.

mi_ _c_ _ is an exercise that is interested in the rhetorical crisis inhabiting in the contemporary art language.

mi_ _c_ _ is a place far away from home. Here we are less afraid to talk about our doubts. Here we can allow ourselves to be fragile. Our friends and our judges are not coming. We owe nothing to no one. We don't have a history to defend. Not even an intention to present ourselves as people coming from Mexico. Maybe curators, maybe artists.

mi_ _c_ _ doesn’t intend to be perfect. It rejects any notion that flirts with unity, totality or any kind of essentialism. Sometimes it longs for fragmentation: we dance but running away from straight lines. We have already seen the consequences of a progressive history.

mi_ _c_ _ also discards the naturalness of orality or any “organic” representation. It bets on the power of showing a problem beyond a nostalgic or sweetened statement.

The exhibition is curated by writer and curator Sandra Sanchez.  The exhibition will be open until the 22nd of January 2017.
