PRESS RELEASE:
Five Thirty Three in collaboration with de Soto Gallery presents
Absolutely Not: Recent Works by Pascual Sisto.

Pascual Sisto's new works explore themes of emancipation and the
absolute, or better yet, absolute emancipation. The artist reconsiders
historical events and significant philosophical documents that greatly
influenced contemporary society and specifically his own personal
artistic practice. These include the ephemeral writings on the walls of
Paris that preceded the events of May 1968 to centuries-old monuments
and significant philosophical works in either book or film. Sisto
emancipates these seminal works by revisiting and modifying the original
sources with a range from subtle to sometimes destructive variations.
Through looking back, the works play with the anticipation of what is to
come.
The exhibition includes neon, video, photography, text, and a confetti
blast performance.
