‘Watch Out… It’s Real!’ is a group exhibition I curated, that included works by Ibon Aranberri, Henry Flynt, Peter Kennard and Haskell Wexler.
The exhibition offered different examples of how fiction (understood as cultural or artistic forms that construct imaginary relationships between people) strives for a political effect in different social and political contexts. In all four cases, the artists' work presented a high level of self-reflection, both in relation to their practice and to its role within that political context.
‘Watch Out… It’s Real!’ also investigated alternative exhibition formats by including music and a feature-length film along with more conventional artworks. The articulation of the different cultural forms within the exhibition space proposed a reflection on the specific conditions that each of these forms demands from its audience, as well as on the levels of information necessary to experience contemporary art.
