New York - Exhibition

Juan Antonio Olivares: Moléculas

Whitney Museum of American Art

02 Mar 201810 Jun 2018

This is the first exhibition by Juan Antonio Olivares (b. 1988) within an American institution. It features his 2017 video “Moléculas”, along with a series of related drawings. “Moléculas” relates a highly personal narrative that is part autobiographical, part fantastical reality.
The work explores fundamental questions about family, loss, separation, and contemporary politics, as well as the ways in which memories acutely and even painfully live on, long after events have passed.
Made using 3D animation, Olivares’s touching video is equally sensitive in its technical detail.
