Emissaries for Things Abandoned by Gods

Curated by Elena Filipovic

Exhibition

21-09-2019 - 15-12-2019

Casa Barragán, built in 1948 by famed Mexican architect Luis Barragán as his private residence and studio, is today considered a landmark of modern architecture. It is filled with all of the artworks and artifacts that Barragán placed in it during his lifetime, faithfully kept as they were when the residence was inhabited by its author. Recognizing the special regard the architect had for the power of these images and objects, the exhibition occupying the Casa Barragán from September 21-December 15, 2019, entitled Emissaries for Things Abandoned by Gods, aims to fill the house with the artworks of contemporary artists. All existing artworks in the Casa Barragán (including all paintings, photographs, images, copies of artworks, sculptures, and artifacts) will be temporarily replaced by contemporary equivalents or “emissaries” selected for their formal or conceptual correspondences with the originals. These newly made and recent artworks by contemporary artists from around the world will be placed precisely where each of the removed originals had previously been in the house.

The exhibition is dedicated to Lutz Bacher
