MUDEC, Museum of Cultures of Milan presents the
Javier Marín exhibition Corpus
Milan, Italy. On June 20 the exhibition Corpus featuring the work of Mexican artist Javier
Marín will be inaugurated at the MUDEC Museum of Cultures in Milan, Italy, where it will
be open to the public from June 21 to September 2, 2018.
After the successful Frida Kahlo retrospective that will close on June 3, as part of an
analysis of the continuity between modern and contemporary Mexico, the MUDEC has
invited the artist Javier Marín to present this solo exhibition entitled Corpus.
Accompanied by texts written by Achille Bonito Oliva, Alessandro Romanini, and Christian
Barragán, the exhibition will showcase 36 works of diverse materials that reveal different
moments in Javier Marín’s production, from his beginnings as a sculptor, the research and
proposals that have shaped his technical and aesthetic language, to monumental pieces
towering more than eight meters tall. The selection includes core pieces that materialize
and complement the artist’s discourse, works that serve as a laboratory of analysis and
experimentation for his formal and conceptual concerns.
In this group of works, Javier Marín’s discourse emphasizes the importance of the part in
relation to the whole, expressed through the sum of small gestures, typical of
contemporary art, in relation to the overall and overarching image of classical statuary.
Corpus by Javier Marín faithfully bears witness to our ordered and chaotic relationship with
the world and with ourselves.
Corpus is the result of collaboration with the Comune di Milano, Gruppo 24 Ore, 24 Ore
Cultura, the gallery Terreno Baldío Arte (Mexico City), and the gallery Barbara Paci
