A retrospective of one of Mexico’s best known conceptual artists, Ulises Carrión recently opened at the Museo Jumex in Mexico City. Under the title ‘Dear Reader. Don’t Read’ the exhibition contains nearly 350 pieces of the late artist’s work including books, magazines, film and sound pieces arranged across the naturally lit top floor galleries.
Carrión’s interest in structure and language, which was developed through his work as a writer and editor, takes shape through a series of freestanding cabinet-like structures forming a rough grid which refers to, but is separate from, the geometry of the gallery space. The cabinets contain printed artworks, writing and objects with videos shown on low tables and the perimeter walls.
The exhibition is open until 13 April.
