GALERIA AZUR MADRID
a

Throughout the last century, artists have been able to incorporate puns in their works: 

collage and Dadaism, from those early cubists, Pop Art, and Conceptual art, all leading to current contemporary art. Whether by found objects, social or political commentary, enigmatically, humorously as storytelling, artists have used text to communicate their ideas and enhance their work in a myriad of ways. But what happens to the unsaid, suppressed, and hidden?

 

Hidden in a collection of instances, of luminous specific details that take us in the direction of the unsaid and the unseen, different elements account for the subtle codified message: a time marked for a distinctive element, moods and emotions materialized in gestures and color palettes, nods to other artists, the presence or absence of objects, etc. By exploring ideas through written and spoken words, the subtext facilitates the dialogue between the artists, the work, and the spectator, in an insightful and challenging way.

 

Subtexts, Galería Azur Madrid’s new group exhibition, proposes a visual narrative where the viewer participates in determining the conclusions, assumptions, and suppositions of the message of each of the unseen works through the filters of its own experience, knowledge, and understanding. At the same time, it also suggests an audience revealing the artwork not only as an individual existence but as a part of an era, a culture.
