O pronunciamento

17 September – 13 November 2020

Artists: Carla Souto, Carme Nogueira, Diego Santomé,  Jorge Varela, Mar Ramón, Rodríguez-Méndez. / Curator: Ángel Calvo Ulloa.

O pronunciamento  (“The Uprising”) takes as its starting point a story run on 13 December 1857 in the daily El País Diario de Pontevedra, about a riot that had taken place six days earlier at a tobacco factory in A Palloza (A Coruña). O pronuniciamento invites six Galician artists to broadly interpret this event, analyzing through their respective processes the after-effects, not of the insurrection as a topic, but of the aestheticization of gestures that, as in the case of the insurrection, highlight incorporeal aspects of our bodies’ agitation, as well as memories that, because they exist on the margins of official history, or because they are embedded within the multiple anonymous accounts that make up an unofficial history, have been left out of this received narrative.
