Cristina Garrido

Her artistic research investigates the value that is culturally assigned to objects; to a large extent, those objects classified as art. Her production, through specific, repetitive and meta-referential gestures, has focused on the circulation of these objects, the study of the exhibition, as well as the curatorial practice. Through these gestures, which take various forms (installations, publications, intervened objects, etcetera), Garrido seeks to expose the mechanisms of promotion and valuation of the art object, proposing a critical reflection about the – physical and digital – exhibition space and opening many of her works to the participation of others.
