Idiosyncrasy: Anchovies Dream of an Olive Mausoleum

The exhibition I have designed based on the Helga de Alvear Collection is something like the invocation of the possibility of something that could be called a supergroup.

from April 25th 2015 to April 3th 2016

. . . and there was time

The new prescriptions of mobility, speed and immediacy imposed by the forms of contemporary life and the new technologies have profoundly modified our perception and experience of time.

Out of order: Works from the Helga de Alvear Collection

from April 26th of 2014 to April 5th of 2015

The Tears of Things

Ed Ruscha | Foto-Photo. Joaquín Cortés

Photography and the moving image, working sometimes as a document, sometimes as a concept, or sometimes occupying the spaces between them, have become a territory that is favourable for exploring reflexively both our way of being in the world and the new semi-autonomous status of the photographic medium.

from June 8th 2013 to March 30th 2014

On Paper

Sobre Papel | On Paper

Maybe it is the idiosyncrasies of Helga’s way of seeing things, special and passionate, that makes her collection on paper so forceful. Because paperis somewhat fragile, on the point of slipping away. There is something of a love letter, those that are blown away and reach their recipients like the kisses, as mentioned by Kafka in Letters to Milena, that are drunk by the ghosts of dawn.

from May 24th to November 3th of 2013

Language Games. An Introduction to The Art of Our Times

Juegos de lenguaje. Foto. Joaquín Cortés

In the era of the global image, each artist builds the criteria of signification of his or her works, constructing a language game whose content must be unravelled in order to interpret its purpose and meaning.

from November 5th of 2011 to September 30th of 2012

Margins of Silence

Planta | Floor 0: Imi Knoebel; Juan Uslé; Wolfgang Tillmans.

The body of works on display in the exhibition presented here have been chosen because they illustrate, in a wide-ranging and approximate way, some of the concepts related to silence, and to the trail of changes these ideas have had on the attitudes of artists since the sixties last century.
