artist's talk: miguel calderón
This Saturday, June 22nd at kurimanzutto artist Miguel Calderón will lead a panel discussion on his creative practices and of his celebrated career. In his practice Calderón considers the divide between the rarified world of “high art” and the day-to-day, deftly weaving together a combination of mockery, foolishness, social critique and sincerity of emotion to create an image that resonates on many levels. His most recent exhibition at kurimanzutto, El Placer Después, is a multi-media installation exploring disasters, ambivalence, and darker side of one’s subconscious. Calderón will be joined by Magalí Arriola, María Minera, and Pablo Ortiz Monasterio in discussing his contributions to Mexican contemporary art.
