The Table, object and accomplice of ideological and social behaviors, is explored through the epistemological idea of the phrase Tabula Rasa; the title of the show.
The table is perceived as a silent space that witnesses the transformation of ritual conduct through time. The project integrates social and systemic contemporary paradigms along the event of the rite, and the complicity of the table among these.

Néstor Quiñones (Mexico City, 1967) is a multidisciplinary artist who since the late eighties has maintained a critical view regarding the art world's established conventions and formulas. Through social and political manifestos, Quiñones has created projects which involve not only artistic processes, but permanent concerns for cultural policies in Mexico. Alongside his twin brother Héctor and Ruben Bautista, Quiñones founded La Quiñonera in 1988, an emblematic space of the art scene in the eighties, which continues to develop experimental projects and exhibitions.
