The Whitney Biennial is an unmissable event for anyone interested in discovering what is happening in art today. Curators Jane Panetta and Rujeko Hockley have been visiting artists for the past year in search of the most important and relevant work.
The participation of Gala Porras-Kim is undoubtedly an element that is inserted into the key problems and approaches of the exhibition's discourse: dynamiting history as a means to re-imagine the present or the future; a deep consideration of race, gender and equity as well as the explorations of the vulnerability of the body.
The artist recovers and relives history in her non-linguistic approach to access inscriptions (their spirit, not the letter). Porras-Kim presented four works, a mixture of sculpture and works on paper, which include "La Mojarra la Estela y sus formas", "La Mojarra Estela negative space" and "La Mojarra Estela enlightened text".
