Galería Bicentenario

Galería Animal, June 2009.

Galería Bicentenario (GB) is a new attempt to question the official image of the cultural scene and the artistic space runned by government institutions. In this case, the instance of the bicentennial is currently used with political and commercial intentions, an almost medially imposed celebration that differs from the poor local reality.
GB is an independent and self managed gallery installed poorly with cheap construction materials, in the terrace of Galería Animal (Galería Animal is a commercial art gallery situated in an upper-class part of the city), and that endured for a month the inclement weather of the winter.
Inside its unstable edification, GB exhibited a series of institutional videos, in multiple color tv’s, and the premier of the soap opera Los Negrero.
