Regina José Galindo :: Exit Gallery (New York)

October 2, 2009 until December 19, 2009 // Exit Art Gallery // New York, NY

Regina José Galindo received the Golden Lion award for Best Young Artist at the 2005 Venice Biennale for her work titled Himenoplastia (Hymenoplasty). Other solo exhibitions include those at prometeogallery by Ida Pisani, Milan, Italy; Galerie du Jour Agnes B., Paris, France; Artpace, San Antonio, Texas; Museum voor Moderne Kunst Arnhem, Arnhem, The Netherlands; and Modern Art Oxford, Oxford, UK. She has been included in more than 85 group exhibitions on five continents. As a poet, she has published in several international anthologies. This is her first solo exhibition in New York.

Regina José Galindo - the second exhibition in Exit Art's SOLO series and the first in the Performance in Crisis program - is a ten-year survey of performance and installation work by the Guatemalan artist Regina José Galindo. The highlight of this important retrospective is the New York premiere of a new work, Cloth, to be performed only once: on the opening night of this exhibition. Cloth is part of a performance trilogy titled Crisis, for which Regina José Galindo will enact a series of transactions that reference and critique our current moment of economic instability.
