Gino Rubert presents the performance "Exhibition Text"

Gallery, 7 September, 2021


A couple of art critics visit the Senda gallery during the hours before the opening of Yago Hortal’s exhibition “Otra vez”. With their conversation around the room sheet and the artist’s work, the two critics, without proposing it, represent a small parody of the relationship between culture and the market, focusing on empty and pretentious language often used in art galleries, cultural institutions and art criticism in explaining to the public an artist’s work. These texts (which, thankfully, hardly anyone reads) are perverse in that they most often hinder rather than the contrary the relationship of the public with quality works, while they evaluate and mask insignificant or trivial works.

This performance is an adaptation of a fragment of his show The World of Art produced by the Romea Foundation.
