press release

The group exhibition A Place Out of History explores the feats, misfortunes, and setbacks in the life and work of legendary figures, covered individuals, and institutions that are key to art history. Curated by Magalí Arriola in collaboration with Magnolia de la Garza, the exhibition emerges as a platform or stage where a series of narratives converge, in which false identities, secret agendas, official versions and half-truths have played an active role, most times behind the scenes, in the definition of specific political scenarios and movements. In A Place Out of History painting, sculpture, video, drawing, and collage is exhibited, as well as photographs, historical documents, publications, and diverse materials that suture together artistic and political narratives. The exhibition includes work by: Francis Alÿs, Olivier Debroise, Harun Farocki, Jill Magid, Domingo Malagón Alea, Tina Modotti, Melvin Moti, Museum of American Art (MoAA), Simon Starling, Hito Steyerl, Nedko Solakov and Han van Meegeren. The exhibition is accompanied by the second volume of the anthology Minor Histories, Larger Worldsedited by artist Pablo Sigg.
