NEVER REAL / ALWAYS TRUE
FROM MARCH 14, 2019 TO SEPTEMBER 22, 2019

«Never real and always true» is a saying by Artaud that functions as the banner for this exhibition on the symbiosis between art and literature. A motto that connects the thirteen participating artists who move between the two worlds and whose work deals naturally with art as a literary genre and literature as an expositive project. It is a critique of the status quo of the systems that govern both art and literature and their treatment as closed shops. Hence the interest in crossing their respective borders and the intention to dissolve them. Let’s just say it’s not only ‘art’ to look at, but also to read. Just as there has been an implosion of art in literature, there has also been a centrifugal energy going in the opposite direction that has brought literature into the world of art, offering a field in which to progress and renew. So, in Never real / Always true it is understood that, in the face of the visual cascade that overwhelms us, art has to be able to welcome the words that explain this Age of Images.

At the same time, Never real / Always true is one exhibition, a reflection on the narrative possibilities of art and ultimately the construction of a common space to host that adventure. It’s a book of books, a story in plain sight and in real time. An experience that seeks to reveal the process whereby text becomes texture, words become images, books become displays and literary exhibition becomes visual exhibition.
