Goya contemporary is pleased to announce the exhibition “Dialogue: Liliana Porter & Ana Tiscornia,” opening with a reception on Wednesday, March 23rd.
Charles Sanders Peirce wrote, “It is the compulsion, the absolute constraint upon us to think otherwise than we have been thinking that constitutes experience.” (Phaneroscopy or the Natural History of Concepts, c. 1905).
The model of thinking differently is an essential catalyst in the collaborative creative process. If an exhibition acts as a journey of discovery, it attempts to create a visual, sensual, and intellectual experience worthy of the artistic undertaking it presents. Vital to the conversation brought to light through this exhibition is the discussion between two artists who have collaborated for many years, placing their trust in what is fundamentally an unknown outcome, while clearly maintaining the individual voices of their singularly authored works.
This exhibition reveals the expansive voice of collaboration, while simultaneously looking at the altered way each artist thinks about the new questions posed by both the intersection and divergence of ideas. As a gallery that has celebrated collaboration in different ways throughout our history, we are interested in the subject of creative alliances. In this exhibition, we reflect on the complexity inherent in the act of working collectively toward something that précis the broad spectrum of human experience, while still satisfying the individual and vulnerable connection between maker, object, and image.
