What Goes There? Y Gallery opens group show
Alejandro Almanza Pereda, The only known complete protection from this event would be to prevent its occurrence, 2014. Shelves, water and found objects, Site-specific dimensions.
NEW YORK, NY.- Y Gallery presents WHAT GOES THERE? an exhibition curated by Carlos Garcia Montero including works by Alejandro Almanza Pereda, Shay Arick and Bryan Zanisnik.

How can we challenge the pure idealist space of domain? Site-specific art is artwork created to exist in a certain place with the ambition of being pure, and detached from certain demands that can avoid reality. Adding location as part of the work presumes to acknowledge certain consciousness of the environment that beforehand was avoided or discontinued. This exhibition investigates different strategies for subverting the general character of what we call site specific-art. Is it possible to create a mental landscape from the experiences generated in life? Or is it possible to defy reason and inhabit more than one space at a time? Which forms of transgression call out establishment and denounce its general character in favor of a more profound reality? Three artists through humor, repetition, chance and improvisation will experiment with the possibilities of what the art object can be.
