This exhibition is based on the series of filmed conversations Travesía Cuatro launched during the summer of 2021, titled BAJO EL SOL. BAJO EL SOL is a digital space that seeks to generate a critical and creative routine through voices that analyze and transform today’s world and who expose or claim alternative social, intellectual, artistic and technological models.
In order to accompany this project, we have conceived a program of exhibitions that starts with this show at our Madrid gallery.
The exhibition focuses on the bodily potentials “of” and “in” the artists’ works as instruments to deconstruct the processes of artistic creation from a Eurocentric system and from the language of art. The aim is to reveal fragments of reality from diasporic positions and therefore enunciating different desires for contemporary life. Whether it is through the representation of their own bodies and those of others, of hearing and touch, of the reorganization of everyday objects or the reformulation of historical narratives, each of these artists speaks to questions surrounding broader social narratives that build our current reality.
