9 November 2010 – 27 February 2011 – The Palazzo delle Esposizioni

The Palazzo delle Esposizioni will host a succession of six great installations of Carlos Amorales that will uninterruptedly feature a new and unpublished series of this renowned Mexican artist. Here, for his first solo exhibition in Italy, the artist will experiment a juxtaposition process of the works made between 2006 and 2010.
Carlos Morales was born in 1970 in Mexico City, where he lives after having completed his studies in Europe and is now one of the most prominent artists in the world. Each of the works on display will feature the shapes of his Liquid Archive, a collection that the artist started in the nineties to group images of a different origin: from private memory to historic or popular iconography, cut from magazines, art catalogues, on the Internet or from his photos. The characters of the Liquid Archive are invested with an immediately-shared symbolic power often ascribable to the fears of present living condition. Nonetheless, Amorales does not focus his activity on social dynamics; it does not disregard them either; rather, as he stated, the aim is to evoke what does not exist. Therefore, if the simplified characters of the surrounding reality are his raw materials, the images of his works are some powerful fantasies.
