Salón was invited by Maria Lind to create discursive frameworks, both live and online, around the exhibitions of Abstract Possible and the three main strands of abstraction addressed in them: formal abstraction, economic abstraction and withdrawal strategies. We seek to offer spaces that nurture a multifaceted discussion around and beyond the exhibition. The two main elements are:
Public Talks Through out the exhibition we will host three conversations in the museum:
Formal Abstraction Guests: Gunilla Klinsberg, Wade Guyton and Alejandro Hernández Museo Tamayo 12:00 pm – 26th of March, 2011
Economic Abstraction Guests: Doug Ashford Museo Tamayo – 8th of April, 2011
