Primer Acto / First Act


This exhibition takes as its starting point the moment when the museum’s “curtain” re-opens at its re-inauguration ceremomy. Primer Acto (First Act) uses this event’s social and political aspect to problematize the museum’s function in relation to the spectator, the artwork, space and critique. By employing rhetorical elements of the history of painting and theatrical representation—such as the mirror and the curtain—it shows the link between expectations raised before any act or exhibition and what we see actually reflected on these stages. Also, various works critique and question the institution as a system that wields power over the public by defining a specific understanding and approach to art.
