The Overflow of Productivity Logic: Presented by the Mexican Culture Institute

  • Mexican Cultural Institute 2829 16th Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20009 United States

This fall the Mexican Cultural Institute is proud to present the exhibit The Overflow of Productivity Logic, featuring select works of modern and contemporary art from the Coppel Collection.

The Overflow of Productivity Logic, with works by artists Cristina Lucas, Irving Penn, Abraham Cruzvillegas, and more, features a selection of pieces that, through gestures, evocations, or representations, displace the meaning of some of the conceptual pillars of the prevailing economic model. Through three thematic axes, the exhibit calls into question production processes and economic exchange, reflects upon the role that the economy plays in the constitution of an individual, and challenges the logic of "productivity" within the capitalistic economic model.
