Alejandro Cesarco: Other Recent Examples
Oct 14, 2023 – Jan 14, 2024
Lumiar Cité
Lisboa, Portugal

Alejandro Cesarco’s exhibition brings together works in a range of media – including print, video and text-based pieces – that propose a reflection on the construction and experience of learning as well as on the processes associated with memory, perception and language. In Other Recent Examples, the artist focuses on the uses and functions of pedagogy and literacy, alongside the relationships between mother tongue, bilingualism and the complicated ecosystem that generates a situation of ‘in-betweenness’.

The exhibition is a co-production between Maumaus/Lumiar Cité and Artium Museoa-Museum of Contemporary Art of the Basque Country. An artist book, co-produced by both organisations, which brings together documentation of artworks combined with an essay by Mirene Arsanios, will be launched at the opening.

The work of the Uruguayan artist (Montevideo, 1975) has been shown in renowned international museums and institutions. Cesarco has also curated presentations at the Bienal de São Paulo (2018) and ARCO Madrid (2020), among other contexts.

Cesarco explores the foundation of meaning by considering issues of language as expressed in writing and reading, translation, remembrance and repetition and the conditions of multilingualism. Cesarco’s formal strategies – such as isolating a footnote from its context, the construction of indexes for books he has not yet written, or the creation of a video whose narrative structure is based on secrecy – are often characterised by an emotional register, where affect produces a series of narratives in dialogue with the history of conceptual art. During the book launch, Miguel Wandschneider and Alejandro Cesarco will discuss the artist’s practice.
