Of Gold and Other Misfortunes

Works by Santiago Montoya
Curated by Jose L. Falconi 

Colombian artist Santiago Montoya (Bogotá, 1974) has been researching systematically the way in which value is created within economic and financial systems, and the way artistic practices are capable of subverting them. Focusing on the seven commodities that have shaped decisively Colombian history from its inception, Of Gold and Other Misfortunes will showcase a number of pieces produced on these commodities as well as promote, in collaboration with Brandeis University, a robust agenda of talks and conferences on these issues.
