Miamicito, exhibition curated by Raquel Schwartz

The name "Miamicito" refers to the flemarkets in Bolivia where people go shopping for a variety of items. The merchandise is a comprehensive compiling of local articles of popular demand; however, you can find many imported items brought to the country overcoming regular customs in a very skillful manner. In this particular sense, the show "Miamicito" presents the juxtaposition between the neighboring ancestral ways of life and global culture.

The show "Miamicito" presents the audience with the isea of a heterogeneous syncretism, the timeless matter of the spirit of times. That essence that debates between the pretentious and hybrid planetary identity, and the need.

The constant pass of conceptual, geographical and diciplinary frontiers means not only the disappearance of the exsistent divisions among artistic categories and diciplines, but also of the dissolution of anthropological distinctions like emotions and reasoning.

Some of the works at "Miamicito" point to the doubt that dwells the spirit of our times. The ongoing crossover of frontiers births the "indetermination" as a new category for interpretation of reality. For example, concepts like "the end of history" or "the end of art" are talking less about limits and more about the natural lack of capacity to find meaning in the processes of unknown developments. Art continues its advancements and history keeps happening; there are still war and social transformations. The difference is now that we are clueless about its "telos"*. That is our anxiety.
