Ex – Culturas (1962-2007)
08.09.2022 - 07.11.2022 

Memoria presents a research project dedicated to two Latin American artists and two Spanish artists who establish a continuum of conceptual use and deconstruction in the sculptural medium, while making visible the commitment to denunciation and dramatic intensity. The artists participating in this exhibition are:  Angela de la Cruz (La Coruña, Spain, 1965), Pablo Serrano (Spain, 1908-1985), Abraham Cruzvillegas (Mexico City, 1968) and Guillermo Núñez (Santiago de Chile, 1930)

The curatorial account of this order of ideas strains the relationship and the limit between the pictorial and sculptural mediums. The collective exhibition of sculptures is titled after the exhibition Printuras y Exculturas, censored and destroyed in 1975 by the Pinochet government of the Chilean artist Guillermo Núñez. For his part, Pablo Serrano, a pioneer in Spanish and European sculpture, contributes one of his pieces Vault for Man, which he presented in 1962 for the Spanish Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, where he reflects on the future of man. contemporary. The second curatorial axis reflects critically and concretely on the work of Ángela de la Cruz and the period of her work prior to her stroke in 2005, dialoguing with the sculptural work of Abraham Cruzvillegas.
