THE STAND IN (OR A GLASS OF MILK)
We are proposing an exhibition whose arrangement is unstable, whose parts accumulate
and change over time.
An exhibition, like a surrealist exercise; nonlinear, non-narrative, symbolic and referential.
During three months, in three configurations, we will involve artists whose work mirror
these ideas. Artists who flex material and content to stand in for something else: a still
life for a portrait, a film for a performance, a performance for a painting, a painting
for a sculpture, a sculpture for a photo.
A presentation, in iterations, within which we play with the promise that
the exhibition is a medium in itself.
