Until November 3, 2012, the gallery Luisa Strina in Sao Paulo presents a group show that aims to examine “how contemporary artists address in their works, the social and labour dynamics as well as the intricate relations between production and consumption that are inscribed in the commodity.”
The exhibition is called Parque Industrial, taking its name from Patricia Galvão’s 1933 proletarian novella, which portrays the lives of a group of female textile workers in the Brás industrial sector of São Paulo.
The exhibition is curated by Julieta González and includes works by the artistsÂ Yael Bartana, Thomas Bayrle, Alexandre da Cunha, Edgard de Souza, Cao Fei, Silvie Fleury, Carlos Garaicoa, Liam Gillick, Terence Gower, Magdalena Jitrik, Joaquim Jordí , Jac Leirner, Renata Lucas, Marepe, Allan McCollum, Josephine Meckseper, Cildo Meireles, Beatriz Santiago Muí±oz, Antoni Muntadas, Felipe Mujica, Nicolás París, Mai-Thu Perret, Tadej Pogacar, Pedro Reyes, Andreas Siekmann and Alice Creischer, Gabriel Sierra, Mladen Stilinovic and The Bruce High Quality Foundation.
