With the presence of some of the most relevant personalities of contemporary art in the country, MUAC’s organizing staff, the dean of UNAM, partners and sponsors –including the British Council– the exhibition of the British-Hindi plastic artist Anish Kapoor titled “Archaeology : Biology” was inaugurated on May 27th and will last until November 27th 2016 and is expected to be one of the most exciting exhibitions of the year in Mexico.

According to Anish Kapoor –one of the most influent and renowned artists in contemporary art– when the process guides the artist, the work is a discovery: “I know that if I allow myself to inquire and investigate during the process, this will lead me to meanings that I couldn’t have been able to imagine”. This is the guiding principle of the exhibition, where the work acquires a life of its own and invites the spectator to get around the tour and experience a feeling of fullness and freedom of the shape in the space.

The exhibition is entitled “Archeology : Biology” since the art pieces appear in front of the spectator as an exercise of historic or cultural discovery of the object, as well as a study of the interior of the subject.

This is a non-chronological retrospective that nonetheless offers a wide scope of Kapoor’s work, with pieces that were created between 1980 and 2015, in a tour on which the different art pieces reflect his artistic evolution throughout the years. It consists of 23 art pieces, three of which are large installations that occupy the rooms 1, 2, 3 and 9 of the Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporáneo (MUAC).
