With its peculiar affinity for crude realism, Teresa Margolles’ poetics attest the complex nature of contemporary society, nearly demolished by the disturbing proportions of the organized crime tearing the world – and especially Mexico, regarded as one of the most dangerous countries in the world – apart. Characterised by a minimalistic yet impactful stylistic grammar that basically forces itself onto a conceptual plane, Margolles’ works tackle the taboo subjects of death and violence, investigating them in connection with the social and economic inequality currently predominant in many of our everyday realities.
The exhibitions for the 2018-2019 period are organised according to four specific lines of research: the spring exhibition season, which will open in the weeks that see Milan as an international showcase with miart and the Salone del Mobile, focusses on great names on the international artistic scene (some of whom are on display in Italy for the first time): Teresa Margolles (2018) and Anna Maria Maiolino (2019).
