Graciela Sacco, Nothing is Where We Think It Is...
Curadores P13 presents a video about "Nothing is Where We Think It…," the most recent anthological exhibition by argentine artist Graciela Sacco. In the audiovisual, Sacco speaks about the content of her work and the reflections on political and social violence contained in each of them. She also addresses her interest in installation as a medium, sensitive techniques and multiple reproductions.

"Nothing is Where We Think It…" was originally presented at the Hotel de Inmigrantes in Buenos Aires, the place where the Museo de la Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero (MUTREF) is currently located. The exhibition will travel to the Museo de Arte del Banco de la República in Bogota, Colombia. It will be inaugurated on July 9 and will remain open to the public until October 2015. The curatorship was entrusted to Diana B. Wechsler, who explained that one of the greatest challenges of relocating the exhibition was to take the work from one place full of "ghostly presences" to another architectural space.
