Horas de Museo is an attempt to reconstruct a collective exhibition that occurred in 1975, organized by a group of enthusiasts and creators of the cultural scene of the moment. The exhibition presents works that could be situated in the modernist tradition of the West. They also capture echoes of political circumstances directly associated with problems of conceptual art. The works and documents collected in the exhibition come from Archiva, a center for experiments and visual documents, and from the Z-C Institute, commonly known as the Sunday Carpenters Club.
Horas de Museo talks about changes in the patterns of thinking, communication and lost languages of culture. These works occupy sporadic moments of history and which, in one way or another, affect the perception of today’s world.
This exhibition is based on the interpretation of a dream by Gabriel Sierra and on his novel —yet to be published— entitled Siete cavernas (Seven Caves).
