La creación muda (The silent creation)

Updated: Mar 30

Instituto Cervantes, New York

Jun 28 - Sep 10

10:00 AM - 5:00PM


La creación muda (The silent creation) celebrates the magic of the language of art and reflects on the infinite possibilities which exist to generate a dialogue. In this exhibition, a group of artists, all from Spanish-speaking countries, dismiss the idea that language is the only way of common interaction and defend the spirit of art as a means of communication.

In 1916, the German philosopher and essayist, Walter Benjamin, published "On Language as such, and on the Language of Man,” the text from which this curatorial proposal, and title for the exhibition, originated.

The exhibition reflects the subtle differences in artistic "accents" of these creators—Laura Jiménez Galvis, Alba Lorente Hernández, Daniel Mantilla, Fernando Martín Godoy, Hernán Rivera Luque, Quintín Rivera Toro and Alex Valls—from Spain, Chile, Colombia, Cuba and Puerto Rico. Their “language” influences their art, be it the language of history, of destruction, of the city or nature, or of its magic.
