I am Making Art. 4 Studies on the Artist’s Body
Tied or abused, naked or covered in paint, still or twitching, the body is present in all possible situations. The artists ¨live¨ their own art, continuing the long tradition of self-portrait and employ themselves to break the accepted norms of identity. This is the proposal of I Am Making Art, a large retrospective about the performance and the use of the body as work material.
The exhibition enables us to rediscover the acts of artists such as Marina Abramovic, Vito Acconci, Fabrice Gygi, Sigalit Landau, Grace Ndiritu, Hayley Newman, Yoko Ono, Adrian Piper and Salla Tykkä; whose work was recorded in their times. This is the first opportunity in Spain to see many of these acts that marked the evolution of an art that thanks to the use of media of reproduction is not ephemeral any more.
The exhibition has been produced by the Centre d'Art Contemporain Genève and in the Contemporary Art Centre Huarte is organized by Katya Garcia-Anton.
