Monserrat Soto

To ask about the experimental implication of the creators and their work is common in our sector, but it is not so usual to question the processes, the structures (Museums, Galleries, Fairs, Biennial…) that negotiate, make visible, endow value to, and also commercialize, those works.[...]
