Curated by Marco Antonini & DETEXT
Cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy
Exhibition: November 8 – 30, 2012
Opening Reception: Thursday November 8, 5-7pm
At a time when traditional economics seem to be losing credibility, Transactions opportunely explores the lapse between economistsâ€™ representations of the world and our daily experience. Featuring works that deal with everyday transactions and systems of bureaucracy, the exhibition probes the wrong assumptions and flawed hypotheses of todayâ€™s neo-liberal model. But rather than simply challenge economic fallacies, Transactions reveals the political and poetic possibilities of such gaps, errors and miscalculations.
Artists: A-153617 (AnÃbal LÃ³pez), David Brooks, Martin John Callanan, Nemanja Cvijanovic, DETEXT, Caleb Larsen, Julien Previeux, Daniel Seiple & KUNSTrePUBLIK, Katarina Sevic, Santiago Sierra, Nedko Solakov and Nikola Uzunovski.
Transactions was organized by independent curator Marco Antonini and artist and economist RaÃºl MartÃnez (DETEXT). It was previously presented at the CCEG (Centro Cultural de EspaÃ±a en Guatemala) in Guatemala City and GalerÃa Horrach MoyÃ¡ in Palma de Mallorca.
