Press Release

siembra (sowing)

How might we reimagine kurimanzutto after its 20 years of existence?

How can we propose a different way of experiencing time?

What place does the gallery occupy in the world, the country, and within each of the communities to which it belongs?

What permeates its surroundings and what will shape its future?

Art asks questions, it doesn’t give answers.

Siembra (sowing) is an exhibition that started on February 2020 and will be extended as long as the current climate will permit. The gallery space is divided into seven rooms to be inhabited or articulated by different artists, projects and collectives, both from gallery roster and externally. The span of each project corresponds to their own creative process, not to an imposed calendar; all of them are independent and have no predetermined duration. The coincidences are woven just like sowing times in agriculture.

Siembra opens the gallery as a space of possibilities, a field in which time and space relate progressively, simultaneously, at different speeds. In it, cross pollination, thought cultivation and experiments in diversity converge to reach a possible harvest.
