The possibility of a museum
From a dystopian and absurd viewpoint, some local artists are using a museum in their town and they’re turning it into a big variety show, we aim to analyse the current museum context using fiction to do so, and subsequently try to imagine a new reality that meets future needs with regard to the concept of museums.
More than your average group, this project is a multi-level collaboration between people involved in different artistic areas (actors, visual artists, critics, curators, etc.) who aim to start several debates within the museum.
Different art forms such as painting, sculpture, performance, conferences, video, etc., throughout MIAC’s temporary exhibitions hall as the events unfold. «We intend to conceive an artistic setting in order to encourage new ways of communication adapted to our current times.»
Artists involved: Daniel Jordán, Francho, Iván Vilella, Moneiba Lemes & José Otero, el colectivo Parto Cerebral, Nicolás Laiz, “Pillimpo” and Yuri Fontes.
