about exhibition /

In 1969, in his "Declaration of Intent",
the New York artist Lawrence Weiner, established the
following rules:
1 - The artist may construct the artwork.
2 - The artwork can be manufactured.
3 - It is not necessary that the artwork is realized.

With this brilliant synthesis, Weiner put in
evidence the distance from the manual features and the relevance of
the mental aspect through which the artist, in
a generic sense, conceives the work of art.
Art "de-materialized" then, where the prevalence of 
the concept is at the expenses of the misunderstood and
misleaded aesthetic sense.
And the technique? also the technical capabilities are
entirely contingent, is not even necessary to
produce the artwork personally and get it done
by artisans or professionals.
For these reasons, too often the
contemporary art knowledge, to a casual and immature visitor
ends up being difficult to understand and only through
certain information, a sort of manual of
instructions for use, it is possible to grasp its meaning,
in a more or less exhaustive way, depending on the
cases .
The exhibition is named DUMMIES, because it is
of stupidity, what we are talking about.
We aim to instill to visitor and the artists themselves
the atrocious doubt, who or what refers
DUMMIES to: the artworks? the artists? Visitors?
Dummies.
