Mixtape is an exhibition comprised primarily of works on paper from MOLAA’s Permanent Collection that focuses on the tradition of drawing in modern and contemporary Latin American art. The title refers to the creation of a conceptual mix or compilation of songs connected by a theme. In this selection, the link between the artworks is not only their medium but also their relationships as studies on line, the figure and architecture, all intrinsic elements of drawing. Another component of the exhibition is the selection of songs to play as soundtracks accompanying the works. These soundtracks will be selected by the curator, the staff and the public and presented in listening stations, cellphone audio tours and educational activities.
The video Partizione linéaire #2, 2007, by Fabiana Cruz (Venezuela, b. 1984), serves as the preface of the exhibition. In the video, the artist wears headphones and responds to the music she is listening to (Vivaldi’s Agitata da due venti) by creating line drawings on the sidewalk. Similarly, the spectator is invited to listen to the songs selected and participate by suggesting other songs inspired by their experience while viewing the artwork.
