Mateo Lopez “Constellations” on Artforum.com

MUSEUM OF MODERN ART OF MEDELLIN

Del Rio Carrea 44 No 19A-100
July 30–November 3

“The studio continues to be one of López’s central themes, which the exhibition highlights through its inclusion of objects that recall a working area; an exhibited drafting table, writing desk, and stool are all on view, abutting—and merging with—López’s own drawings. The exhibition thus offers up a participatory situation, such that visitors, in a sense, become the artist himself, learning how to engage with and behave around the objects that inhabit his studio-like space.”
