“Axiomas para la acción” is an exhibition about the twenty-two years of Carlos Amorales‘ career. This emphazises the conceptual aspects of his work and how these operate beyond specific works.
The core of the show is “Axiomas para la acción”, a theoretical text by the artist which defines the axes that have constituted his work as an organic investigation. The exhibition will change according to the venue, as part of a script and a list of work that each institution and curator will carry out in relation to its particular interpretation of the central text and its material, architectural and organizational possibilities. Thus, each sample will be an interpretation of the matrix of the work of Amorales and a compendium of his work, refuting the pretension to organize his career through a chronological or classificatory order.
