HEAR NOT, SPEAK NOT. 1990-2015
26, at 20:00 h.
The show opens with one question and three commands drawn from the work of two artists: Rogelio López Cuenca and Curro González. First of all, we must ask ourselves, paraphrasing Hölderlin’s famous question: What are artists for in a destitute time? There are many possible answers, and some of them may be found on the journey through this exhibition. This institutional criticism ties in with certain questions implied by the show’s title, based on the transcription into words of three drawings by Curro González: see not, hear not, speak not. This triple imperative aims to reveal how our freedom of action has been curtailed, defining the limits imposed on citizens by the system but also those imposed on artists and their audiences by the museum institution as part of the establishment.
With different galleries that successively
examine the role of the artist and aesthetic, cultural, gender,
identity and social issues, this exhibition attempts to analyse
the art of recent decades -focusing on the local context but adopting
a global perspective- illustrated by works from the collection that
the Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo has acquired over
the past 25 years.
