Exposición de Bienes
for Mayrit Bienal & Museo Nacional de Artes Decorativas
Exposición de Bienes offers an opportunity to engage with the disparity between conventional presentations of decorative arts objects and their ordinary roles in the lives of people. It acts as a commercial foil to the existing infrastructure of the Museo Nacional de Artes Decorativas in Madrid; consisting of a functioning open-air antiques market which has been curated to correspond to the museum’s collection. Visitors are encouraged to visit the museum and the market in any order they wish, and to take something home. By juxtaposing these infrastructures, we hope to give prominence to the fundamental nature of the objects in the collection: that they were made to be used.
