Subtitled / Subtitulado
The Galería Elba Benítez is pleased to announce Subtitled / Subtitulado by Alejandro Cesarco, the artist’s first exhibition at the gallery.
Subtitled / Subtitulado is an open-ended reflection on the figure of the artist and is anchored around two central works: Midcareer, a new video work that addresses the advantages and difficulties of midcareerness, and The Style it Takes (Excerpts), an older (and upended) photographic work, which explores the social function of art and the shifting roles of the artist persona. Style, that which is recognizable and built over time, is referenced throughout the show in different ways, but generally treated as a strategy to get past oneself, as a way to get around obstacles. The exhibition brings together recurring themes in Cesarco’s work such as repetition, narrative, affective genealogies and the practices of reading and translation.
A conversation between Alejandro Cesarco and Andrea Büttner was published for this occasion and is available at the gallery.
