Substance – SUBSTANCES

Church of San Martín
Calle de la Alhóndiga, 20
Arévalo, Ávila
Substance – SUBSTANCES is an exhibition conceptualized to be installed in the historic Church of San Martín, within the royal municipality of Arévalo. With this first art presentation, OPEN FOR WORKS opens, a set of exhibitions that will activate the first cycle of Collegium – a cultural program that starts before the construction of its building. This exhibition, curated by the Mexican Patrick Charpenel, emerges from a critical reading of the traditional principles of Baroque. Starting from a reflection on traditional symbolic logic and its various cultural consequences, the exhibition addresses the relationship between “entities” of a composite nature, complexly connecting apparently dissimilar elements. Can something be what it is not? Can there be a relationship between things of a foreign nature? Is there a connection between the sacred and the profane? These questions explore in a renewed way the meaning and significance of Baroque within the framework of 19th, 20th, and 21st-century cultural production. In this project, Los Caprichos by Francisco de Goya will be exhibited with the work of twenty-five contemporary artists.
