Dora García. Second Time Around
Dedicated to the artist Dora García (Valladolid, 1965), this exhibition embarking on an open journey around a broad array of her works in diverse formats and mediums — film, performance, texts, drawings — and punctuating some of the constants running through her career. The title, Second Time Around, originates from Julio Cortázar’s homonymous story, written in 1974, which recounts the climate of psychosis and uncertainty caused by the trauma of disappearances in Argentina. Second Time is also the name of García’s most recent project, which orbits the figure of Oscar Masotta, a contemporary of Cortázar’s and a pivotal theorist in the Argentinian avant-garde from the 1950s to the 1970s.
The exhibition is accompanied by a specific programme of performances by the artist.
