Miguel Palma 
Modern Discomfort
Curated by Miguel von Hafe Pérez
8 March–26 May 2013
Miguel Palma (b. 1964, Lisbon) takes over the forms and the narrative flow of a modernity that is in continuous interpretive mutation in order to work with concepts such as degeneration, failure or progress. The fascination he finds in the icons representative of classical modernity, such as automobiles, aviation, astronomical observation, architecture and technology in general turns into an episode of anxiety that does not reproduce a desired world, but rather the desire for a world, conveyed in an expansive curiosity that questions that which is real through the use of installations, videos, drawings and performances, such as the one that he will be presenting at the CGAC on the occasion of this opening.
