Reverse: Rewriting culture seeks to review the body of work of contemporary gay artists that freed from any fig leaf are proposing a horizontal reading about gender, sexuality, social concerns, and ontological issues.

This exhibition is the first edition of the ambitious project “ONE WAY”, that in each edition will call a group of artists whose sexual orientation does not correspond to the dominant stereotype of heterosexuality, neither with the wild spread misconception that reduce the production of gay artists to homoerotic contents.

Reverse: Rewriting culture seeks to avoid incurring two extended stereotypes and therefore errors that dominate the approach to this kind of production that include, but are not limited to the following misconceptions: Concealment or silencing of sexual orientation of the author, or by the contrary, Confinement and reduction to the mere erotic commentary that silences or minimizes the social implications that motivates these works placing them away from general social channel where definitely belong these proposals.

Consuelo Castañeda Recycle

Wynwood Art Walk:
December 8th, 2012 7-10 PM

Hardcore Art Contemporary Space
72 NW 25th Street
Miami, FL 33127

Consuelo Castañeda intends to “create large-scale models of the service industry: a spa, a boutique, a cyber-center, a reading room, a lounge, an object reception area and the like.” The system used is based on the act of recycling physically and conceptually the materials found in all the disposable surrounding us, presented as elements of modernity. Designing these spaces of “utility” from stereotyped services facilitates the use of the quotation referred to as modern architecture and induces comments related to the proper satisfaction of some social needs.

Consuelo Castañeda: la historia como retruécano del alma

By Janet Batet

El Nuevo Herald, June 19, 2011

[….]

En For Rent, Castañeda se apropia de su propia vivencia en tanto inmigrante y de la historia de Americas Society en la época de guerra fría. Castañeda transforma el edificio en una instalación colosal que comprende tres ambientes fundamentales.

El primero, Guantanamera, se apropia del documental homónimo de Ross Birrell y David Harding para recrear un contrapunto de la identidad escindida.

En una segunda sala, la artista interviene Reticulárea, uno de los trabajos más emblemáticos de Gego (Gertrude Goldschmid), epígono del arte moderno venezolano. La intervención de la obra, creada para Americas Society en 1969, establece un interesante paralelo y tributo a la artista alemana de origen judío cuya nacionalidad fue anulada en 1935 tras el ascenso de las fuerzas nazis al poder.
