    Join SculptureCenter for a performance of Tania Pérez Córdova’s In Other News and a conversation with the artist and exhibition curator Humberto Moro marking the release of a new monograph.

    Pérez Córdova’s In Other News (commissioned for her 2022 exhibition at Museo Tamayo, Mexico City) is a live reading presenting a continuous flow of recent world events, a collection of headlines rewritten to abstract from any specificity (names, spaces, times), resulting in a single line that has the tension of a story. The work serves as a review of the world outside of the gallery during the time of her exhibition. It functions as a backdrop to a collective experience which, as in most of Pérez Córdova’s work, describes an ongoing narrative that deviates and reconfigures into new forms as it unfolds. At the same time, the juxtaposition of events, almost unintentionally, evinces the contradictory nature of social and political events and their intersections across geographies and socio-political spheres.

    This event also marks the release of Generalization, a new, bilingual monograph on the work of Tania Pérez Córdova edited by Humberto Moro with managing editor Junni Chen, Director, Tina Kim Gallery, and published by Gregory Miller & Co. The publication includes contributions by Magalí Arriola, Director, Museo Tamayo; Elena Filipovic, Director and Chief Curator, Kunsthalle Basel; and Humberto Moro, with an interview between the artist and Jovanna Venegas, Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art, SFMOMA, as well as a text by Pérez Córdova. It is illustrated with never-before published images of Pérez Córdova’s recent exhibitions at Museo Tamayo, Mexico City (2022); Kunsthalle Basel (2018); and MCA Chicago (2017). The publication will be available for purchase in SculptureCenter’s bookstore from October 2023.
