Brussels-based artist Kobe Matthys, through his initiative Agency, investigates the modern concept of intellectual property, and its reliance on the assumption of a division between the ontological categories of ‘nature’ and ‘culture’.
In this lecture-performance, Héctor Bourges, a member of the Mexico City-based artistic collective Teatro Ojo, combines a series of gestures with images of historical events that have influenced the Mexican national identity project.
The Gallery at REDCAT focuses on experimentation through new commissions that often mark the first major U.S. presentation by the featured artists. Employing temporary structures and dynamic installations, the exhibition formats are flexible and constantly reformulated to allow for a range of spatial and temporary possibilities. Through its annual series of exhibitions, publications, talks and other public programs, the Gallery highlights concepts and critical discourses that connect art with other fields and disciplines.
REDCAT's gallery publishes major monographs and art books on contemporary artists. Starting in 2013, a new series of collected small-format publications will serve as guides for the exhibitions at REDCAT. These publications serve as critical tools that transform the approximation approach to what is presented in the space and as open points of interest that contribute to the constant reinterpretation of the issues addressed.
