Rituals of the Everyday

This exhibition is inspired by the site of Arévalo, its unique landscape formed by layers of history and the co-existence of diverse cultures, religions, and peoples across many eras and centuries. From the vantage point of this Spanish town with its distinct Mudejar architecture and with one of the oldest Jesuit schools, the exhibition aims to explore rituals of the everyday and the embeddedness of different notions of time—archaeological, ecological, and colonial.

Through poetic and concrete gestures, artists in the exhibition explore questions about how we understand the contemporary world through past lives. They ask how a radical re-negotiation of our relationship to the natural and social worlds can transform our sense of the real, our perception of what is possible, our desire for better futures. Fundamental to these artists are a deep sense of care and respect for the everyday—of reflecting, making, learning, and building, thereby becoming rituals that engage the body, mind and spirit and re-organize our relationship to animate and inanimate worlds. Two of them –Lais Myrrha and Gala Porras-Kim– will be producing site-specific commissioned works for this exhibition.

Pio Abad, Leonor Antunes, Pedro Barateiro, Mariana Castillo Deball, Leda Catunda, Lais Myrrha, Koushna Navabi, Paulo Nazareth, Gala Porras-Kim, Maria Taniguchi.
