Ruins in Reverse is the result of a curatorial collaboration between Tate Modern in London and the Museo de Arte de Lima – MALI in Peru. The exhibition questions the distinction between historical monuments and abandoned urban ruins. Presented in Tate Modern’s Project Space, it brings together works by six international artists: Rä di Martino, Pablo Hare, José Carlos Martinat, Haroon Mirza, Eliana Otta and Amalia Pica.
Borrowing its title from an idea found in Robert Smithson’s 1967 essay A Tour of the Monuments of Passaic, Ruins in Reverse draws attention to a subtly nuanced contemporary archaeology in which the tenuous line between reality and fiction is blurred.
