Found and Lost Opens at Museum of Contemporary Art Puerto Rico
You never asked me to be perfect - did you?, 2009, two modified wall clocks.
SAN JUAN, PR.- The Museum of Contemporary Art presents ‘Found & Lost’, the first individual exhibition in a Puerto Rican museum by the artist Michael D. Linares. This presentation is part of the New Tendencies Room exhibition program.

‘Found & Lost’ consists of works in painting, sculpture, photography and video produced expressly for this exhibition. These works originate from existing works of art which are modified so that they reactivate and redirect their latent meanings and underline the constant process of construction, deconstruction and reconstruction of this meaning present in every act of reading. These actions test not only the validity of the works being referenced, but also that of his own work, and suggests the revision of the position of the author as much as that of the spectator.

Michael D. Linares (born1979, Bayamón, Puerto Rico, lives and works in San Juan, Puerto Rico. His work has been the subject of numerous exhibitions including The Lawrimore Project, Seattle; Institute of Contemporary Art of Pennsylvania (ICA); CANADA Gallery, New York; ‘The Peace Tower’, a project by Mark di Suvero & Rirkrit Tiravanija for the Whitney Biennial, Whitney Museum, New York (2006), among others. Recently Linares has been included in the publication by Phaidon ‘The Generational: Younger Than Jesus / Artists Directory’ that will accompany the triennial of the same name in the New Museum, New York (2009).

'Michael D. Linares: Found & Lost' is made possible thanks to the generous support of Walter Otero.
