Soft Information in Your Hard Facts, Gabriel Kuri's (Mexico City, 1970) solo exhibition conceived for Museion, brings together a number of sculptural works, both existing and specially commissioned for the occasion.
The show comprises works that feature a range of materials, such as plastic shopping bags, cast concrete, a working conveyor belt, rocks, painted plywood, printed nylon, and ready-mades, altered only by their contextual associations.
As the title suggests, Soft Information in Your Hard Facts broadly revolves around the tension created by the dialectical opposition of hard and soft. Indeed, like most of Gabriel Kuri's works, those featured here draw their meaning from their material properties as well as their semantic implications, articulating a trope of everyday grammar rooted in the logic of exchange.
Aside from his solo show at Museion, in 2010 Gabriel Kuri will be featuring in three other solo exhibitions at international institutions: the show join the dots and make a point is a cooperation between Kunstverein Freiburg (11.06 – 08.08.2010) and Bielefelder Kunstverein (03.09 - 01.11. 2010), while Nobody needs to know the price of your Saab is the title of the solo exhibition that the artist is staging at the Blaffer Art Museum at the University of Houston (28.08 - 13.11.2010).
