Exhibitions opening: Uriel Orlow and Jumana Manna
On June 7 Tabakalera will open its two new exhibitions, dedicated to two artists presenting their work individually in the Spanis state for the first time: Uriel Orlow and Jumana Manna.
Orlow and Manna are two artists who know each other and who dialogue from thematic proximity. In the work of both we find works that talk about botany and taxonomy as a metaphor of power relations and about archive as a constructive element of history and knowledge. In some cases, the logic behind certain forms of knowledge production is questioned: who selects and classifies what is preserved? with what criteria and for what purposes?
The two exhibitions will be on show until 6 October, 2019.
