Congratulations to Teresa Margolles on the opening of LA CARNE MUERTA NUNCA SE ABRIGA, on view from August 31, 2019 through February 2, 2020 at Museo de la Solidaridad Salvador Allende in Santiago, Chile. The museum will host an opening reception on Saturday, August 31 at 12:00 PM.
In her first solo exhibition in Chile, the Mexican artist Teresa Margolles (Sinaloa, Mexico, 1963) investigates the social and aesthetic dimensions of conflict, documenting violence engendered by structural and historical inequality in a series of works and interventions carried out throughout the Atacama region and in disenfranchised neighborhoods of Santiago de Chile.
LA CARNE MUERTA NUNCA SE ABRIGA comprises a new body of work conceived by Margolles for her exhibition at the Museo de la Solidaridad Salvador Allende. Curated by Andrea Pacheco González, the exhibition is the result of extensive fieldwork undertaken throughout Chile, a county whose economic model reinforces social stratification. The effects of this economic injustice on marginalized bodies is documented in photographs, videos, installations and ceramic pieces which make tangible the devastating effects of capitalism in relation to issues such as homelessness, pollution, racism and social exclusion.
