Generalization is the first survey of artist Tania Pérez Córdova (b. 1979, Mexico City) in a United States institution, featuring a selection of twenty-four works made over the past ten years, as well as objects specially commissioned for this occasion.

The exhibition presents a reading of Pérez Córdova’s work through issues that her artistic endeavors have sought to address: the passage of time, the nature of materials, the gaze of the other, the imminence or possibility of an action, the way in which we assign value to objects, negative space, and more recently, the insufficiency of discourse.

The exhibition Didactic Poetry brings together paper works arranged in small groupings by 15 artists. Their narration takes shape at the intersection of didactics and poetry. In their practices, the artists pursue and exhibit a relational critique of, a precise sensitivity to, and a finely honed notion of this charged dynamic. The works reflect different concepts and understandings of pedagogy, labor, poetry, and gallery.

In the dynamic of didactics and poetry, there exist aporias that yield discursive and social potentials. The ancient genre of didactic poetry (German: Lehrgedicht) is associated with a high degree of metapoetic self-reflection. The exhibition considers the question as to what extent the didactic potential inherent in the works provides insights into the artists’ poetic intentions and those of the works themselves.

Varying settings highlight the conditions in which different modes of engagement take place, allowing for changes in the status of the works and the roles of the actors involved. In this context, conceptualizations, positions, and conditions of artworks are examined, insofar as they are capable of generating their own discourses, but are also available as applied pedagogical tools.

The question of how a gallery can contribute to educational endeavors involving pedagogical practices, social engagement, and intellectual enrichment will be juxtaposed and integrated with the gallery’s usual range of tasks on July 1st. We extend a warm invitation.

Threads exhibition at Arnolfini. Image by Lisa Whiting Photography for Arnolfini. All rights reserved.

Arnolfini welcomes you to discover Threads, a major exhibition featuring 21 contemporary international artists and makers, who use textiles as their chosen medium. Celebrating material and making, these artists use the storytelling power of textiles to connect with past traditions, find commonalities between cultures, time and place, and to ‘breathe stories into materials’. Co-curated by leading textile artist Alice Kettle, Threads weaves throughout Arnolfini’s three floors, to reveal how textiles ‘remember’, how memory is ‘embedded within the process of making’ and how new narratives are created.
