- IT'S THE POLITICAL ECONOMY, STUPID
exhibition - Curators Oliver Ressler and Gregory Sholette

It´s the Political Economy, Stupid brings together a group of superlative artists who focus on the current crisis in a sustained and critical manner. Rather than acquiesce to our current calamity this exhibition asks if it isn't time to push back against the disciplinary dictates of the capitalist logic and, as if by some artistic sorcery, launch a rescue of the very notion of the social itself.

- Other visible things. La chispa que incendia la llanura. (L'étincelle qui met feu à la plaine), curada por Mabel Tapia
Centro Ecuatoriano de Arte Contemporáneo-CEAC - Quito
march / may 2012

En 1966, el artista y entonces profesor de la School of Visual Arts de New York, Mel Bochner, acepta organizar una exposición en la galería de la escuela. Bochner le pide a sus amigos artistas, trabajos en papel que podían no ser, necesariamente, obras de arte. Frente a la selección realizada (que incluía trabajos o documentos de Donald Judd, Eva Hesse, Dan Graham y Robert Smithson, entre otros), los responsables de la galería objetan no tener fondos para enmarcarlos. Bochner decide entonces, presentar fotocopias de los “dibujos” e incluye, también, otro tipo de materiales como artículos científicos, textos de matemática, arquitectura e incluso el manual de la flamante fotocopiadora Xerox con la que realizó las fotocopias dando lugar a la mítica exposición Working Drawings and Other Visible things on paper not necessarily meant to be Viewed as Art*.

Retomando, en parte, el título sugerido por Bochner, Otras cosas visibles (no) necesariamente percibidas como arte proponemos un espacio donde documentos, archivos y obras funcionan sin tener en cuenta su propio estatuto, sin preocuparse necesariamente por definirse en tanto que arte pero sin, necesariamente, renunciar a él...Mabel Tapia
