“An exhibition is a narrative of thought through experience. Trusting experience means trusting art, trusting public life, trusting freedom and difference, in all their forms. This book explains how to conceive those worlds.” – Chus Martínez
The star format for the presentation of contemporary art continues to be the exhibition. An exhibition that undergoes constant modifications, that needs to adapt to the artists’ proposals, rethink its use, analyze itself according to its possible functions and that, in short, cries out to us for a reformulation.
Salir de la exposición (si es que alguna vez habíamos entrado) is an approach to the possibilities of the exhibition, a desire, a look to share with the will to rethink the way art connects with society.
