Políticas del Polvo | Dust Politics

April 28- July 15, 2016

Lets explore the interpretations and evident references of the monument; authoritarian, imposing, iconoclastic, spectacular, glorification of heroes and values from the past, the anti-monument, vandalism, architecture, graffiti, narco-banners, publicity, construction of history, narrative, the opposite of culture?, oppression?, current attention to the object? 

Emma Molina Gallery is proud to present the group show, Políticas del Polvo (Dust Politics) this upcoming April 28, 2016. Políticas del Polvo (Dust Politics) or #archivopdp, intends to be not only an exhibition, but also a discussion platform around the expanded concept of monument. The artists that conform the show are: 

Yollotl Alvarado
Javier Barrios
Jorge de la Garza
Manuela García
Cristóbal Gracia
Joshua Jobb
Ulrik López
Anuar Maauad
Theo Michael
Museo Invisible Fundidora
Omar Pimienta
Armando Rosales
Joaquín Segura.

This first file, is generated from a collective dynamic and invites the community to add thoughts and content as a note or using the hashtag #archivopdp. Through this investigation, we aim to detonate questions about the production and management of monuments, the implications of these as urban and historical landmarks, as official or significant democratic demonstrations, and the public space as a meeting point.
