Exhibition: Useless: Machines for Dreaming, Thinking and Seeing
As a reaction to our current times focused on utilitarianism and profit, Useless: Machines for Dreaming, Thinking and Seeing presents a selection of curious machines created by artists with the goal of stirring dreams, feelings, critical thinking, and ironies; for seeing what microscopes, telescopes and cartographies cannot show; for flying without taking-off; in short, for doing the impossible. Organized by Gerardo Mosquera.
Participating artists include Jairo Alfonso, Wim Delvoye, Juan Downey, Peter Fischli & David Weiss, Algis Griskevicius, Shih Chieh Huang, José Iraola, William Kentridge, Chico MacMurtrie, Stefana McClure, Arnaldo Morales, Roxy Paine, Fernando Sánchez Castillo, Shyu Ruey-Shiann, Adriana Salazar, Johanna Unzueta, and Simón Vega.
