María Teresa Hincapié. Si este fuera un principio de infinito
If This Were a Beginning of Infinity
The monographic publication on the Colombian artist María Teresa Hincapié accompanies the exhibition, coproduced by the MACBA Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona and the Museo de Arte Moderno de Medellín (MAMM), in which collective interaction is upheld as a producer of knowledge and as an essential means of conveying it. María Teresa Hincapié’s practise encompassed life, creation in motion and the search for the mystical.
The book includes essays by the curator, critic and art historian Carolina Ponce de León, the lecturer José Antonio Sánchez, the curator, historian and scholar Carmen Maria Jaramillo, the curator Paula Bossa and the exhibition curators, Claudia Segura (MACBA) and Emiliano Valdés (MAMM).
In addition, it features an extensive selection of images of the artist’s performances and works, as well as photographs of their various installations and documentation. All the works are accompanied by an explanatory text that sets them in context. The book also details the influence of María Teresa Hincapié’s legacy, as described by the three contemporary artists Coco Fusco, Mapa Teatro and María José Arjona.
