Situaciones En Suma
The exhibition took as a hub of events the National University of Colombia’s Art Museum, which served as a meeting hall, artist’s studio, workshop location, and exhibition venue. The title “Situaciones en suma” (which roughly translates to “Accumulating situations”) was meant to comprise the evolving nature of the works shown, and how they ended up in their final assembly stage.
Over the course of 3 months, a group of 24 artists took over the museum in a processbased dialog with their partners and the space they were working in, which centered around the experimentation with materials, its exposure and evolution through time, as well as the transformation of the pieces as a consequence of its interaction with the spectator.
As a result, the exhibition gave more relevance to the interaction between materialities and shared symbolism between artists and their creative processes than to individual, secluded works, creating an experience continuum throughout the three galleries and the two gardens of the museum.
