‘Recover/Uncover’, Masa Galeria, Mexico City (MX)


Temporarily closed until further notice to help contain the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19)

6 February 2020 – 8 April 2020

Recover/Uncover examines the convention of taxonomy as an organizational exercise that reveals its own ambiguities. With newly commissioned, unique and limited-edition pieces by designers and artists whose inquiries defy strict categorization, MASA Galeria introduces for consideration a set of binaries other than purpose and expression, celebrating contradiction as a reflection of the ongoing process of becoming and self-definition. The pieces exist along a spectrum of indeterminates rather than at a stasis, defying strict archetypes and presenting objects as tools for living, contemplation and, most of all, reconciliation.

Atelier Van Lieshout artworks on display: Black Funnelman (2006) and Party Island (Les Brutalist Series, 2005).
