SAIC / MFA Show 2019

For the MFA show, along with 6 other students, we decided to break with the individualism of this kind of exhibitions and propose a collective approach to it. We did collaborations, documented the process, had continuous meetings and constantly nurtured the conversation beyond the institutional request. The result is going to be on view from Friday 26 at Sullivan Galleries under the name “carbon copy”.

Cielos / Salón Comunal

Muy feliz de poder participar con la obra The Museum closes at 5 pm en el inicio de una siguiente etapa del proyecto que con tanto cuidado y cariño ha ido cultivando Bernardo Montoya: Salón Comunal. Un espacio de artistas, para artistas, que en esta ocasión celebra la apertura de un nuevo espacio con su exposición Cielos. La nueva casa, más grande y más poderosa, está ubicada en la desembocadura de la calle 57, o avenida de las palmas (como me gusta llamarla), en el ante-jardín del estadio El Campín y muy cerca, pero sin el barullo, del centro comercial Galerías.

I am happy to be part of this upcoming exhibition showing work by Doug Rosman, Katie Wood and Jiaqi Zhang, and curated by Emily Carranza, Nicolay Duque-Robayo, Rebecca Haley, Lasondra Kern, and Victoria Peña, all students in the Masters of Arts Administration & Policy department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

I will be showing a new work titled Directions, an sculptural object, similar to a pole with directional signs but composed of 6 different videos playing each one in a single tablet attached to a robust light stand. While each video was made before, for other projects, they all overlap in questions about daily life, routines, time, memory and travel. The piece is also referring to the structure behind my process of thinking which I like to compare to a game of Scrabble, in this case, with six possible paths or six degrees of separation.
