The Days of this Society are Numbered
Inspired by a famous statement by French thinker Guy Debord, proclaiming that THE DAYS OF THIS SOCIETY ARE NUMBERED, this exhibition plays with the notion that at the beginning of the XXI century one is experiencing a period of fin de siècle, in which the state of affairs is questioned and a collective anxiety is emerging, a situation caused by the feeling of political, economic, and cultural crisis that is permeating the Western world and is creating a social entropy.
Artists: caraballo-farman (Argentina-Iran/Canada), Carolina Caycedo (Colombia), Hugo Canoilas (Portugal), Ruth Ewan (UK), John Hawke (US), Kiluanji Kia Henda (Angola), Nadja Marcin (Germany), Takashi Horisaki (Japan), Brooke Singer (US), Dread Scott (US). Curated by Miguel Amado
Dread Scott’s Money to Burn will be on view.
OPENING RECEPTION: Sunday, March 6, 2011, 6–8 p.m.
