What do we want from art? Andrea Fraser (Billings, Montana 1965) addresses this question in her work and looks at the motivations of a wide range of cultural agents including artists, collectors, gallerists, patrons and audiences. Associated with institutional critique, and informed by feminism, psychoanalysis and the sociologist Pierre Bourdieu’s theory of social fields, the core of Fraser’s work is a piercing analysis of the social fabric of the art world, exploring its internal mechanisms together with the political, economic and psychological structures that condition it.

Fraser is one of the most provocative and influential artists of her generation. She has pioneered a practice of critical reflexivity that has contributed to greater self-awareness within the art world. Beyond simply producing knowledge about institutions of art, her investigations aim to activate reflexive critique in others. Infused with intellect, humour and emotion they challenge us to consider our own motivations as we view the work and participate in the field of art.

L’1%, c’est moi is Fraser’s first solo exhibition in Spain and brings together a selection of works from over thirty years of critical engagement with the art field, from early works on paper based on appropriation, seminal gallery talks and multi-voiced performances, to installations, text-based works and documentation.

Exhibition organised and produced by the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona and the Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City.
