Exhibiton: Black Box at the Hirshhorn Museum

Posted By Administration, Friday, February 14, 2014

Santiago Sierra & Jorge Galindo 


February 14 - May 18, 2014

Noted for artworks that question the structure and impact of authority, Santiago Sierra (Spanish, b. Madrid, 1966

staged a performance that similarly invokes images of political leaders. In August 2012 he organized a motorcade of seven black Mercedes-Benz sedans topped with upended monumental portraits of King Juan Carlos I and the six prime ministers of the Spanish democracy by painter Jorge Galindo (Spanish, b. Madrid, 1965; lives and works in London). Bystanders, taken by surprise, posted cellphone documentation, and months later the artists’ multicamera black-and-white edit created a viral sensation.
