CA2M Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo



What kinds of choreographies are activated in our exhibition rooms? The body and its gestures are put under the spotlight in CA2M’s programme for 2017-2018. In our guided visits we will explore other ways of seeing, analysing social choreographies and political readings. Using elements like the voice, the body and its relationship with space, we will engage collectively with the works. We believe that in this way the rooms at CA2M can potentially become meeting places where we can negotiate the roles of the voices that teach and the silences of those who always listen. On these guided visits we will ignore the walkthrough of the single discourse and open up the space to create new imaginaries for the body: Is it possible to make our way through an exhibition in another way? What happens when our bodies look collectively and our voices meet in the exhibition room?

As well as the usual guided visits to the exhibitions, we have organised Positioned Visits with Javier Vaquero to coincide with the exhibition Elements of Vogue. A Case Study in Radical Performance. In this temporary encounter in the museum we will create a safe comfort zone where we can visit ourselves. We will visit ourselves from the gazes of others and the empathy that comes from the works on exhibit. We will revisit ourselves from gender, observe our performativity, laugh at ourselves and even transform ourselves. We will move about and we will dance Vogue, even if we do not know how to.
