PATRICK HAMILTON @ MUSEO NACIONAL DE ARTE REINA SOFÍA

The chicago boy's project (“El ladrillo”), 2018-19. Instalación con archivos de imágenes que documentan la implantación del modelo neoliberal en Chile. Fotocopias, fotografía tipo-c, metacrilato, ladrillos refractarios, pintura acrílica, tableros MDF y base metálica. 

Tiempos Incompletos (Chile, primer laboratorio neoliberal) is an exhibition that, through the work of Patrick Hamilton and Felipe Rivas San Martin, proposes a critical review, with a plastic proposal, of the historical and economic process of dictatorship, transcision and post-transcision in Chile. Hamilton's pieces are based on the everyday life of his hometown in Santiago, Chile, to show the deep contrasts and inequality that make up the usual landscape, not only of the southern capital, but of all the big cities of the so-called "developing countries". Patrick Hamilton, Leuven (Belgium), 1974. Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Chile, in Santiago. In 2007 he won the Guggenheim Fellowship, New York. His work has been exhibited in several exhibitions in Latin America, the United States and Europe. Lives and works between Madrid (Spain) and Santiago (Chile).

Two Hamilton pieces are presented at συν χρόνος until May 25 at Galería RGR.
