Specifically conceived for the exhibition spaces of Museo Reina Sofia, the exhibition runs around a new project by Tamar Guimarães (Belo Horizonte, Brazil, 1967). The artist’s work spans the fields of installation, film and sound, and is based on historical investigation, often incorporating found materials such as photographs, texts, documents and objects. The processing of these raw materials gives rise to hybrid narratives melding documentary, essay and fiction. Moreover, the artist explores the way in which social relations of race, class and work are conveyed in different cultural products such as architecture, religious literature and dance.
