A Few In Many Places, curated by Mari Spirito and Abhijan Toto, is a multi-city group exhibition which addresses on-going collapses and cycles of violence, through various forms of collectivity. Taking place in Seoul, Bangkok, Istanbul, New York, Santurce, and Guatemala City, all of these interventions use sustainable exhibition-making models of reducing exploitation (of natural resources, labor and knowledge) and consumption (no shipping or flying). Each chapter is site-responsive while speaking across the regions and produced in a format that allows for forms of engagement under various conditions of lockdowns or other contingent situations.
In Santurce, González built a site-specific installation in his studio entitled Bateyes del Chibal, that merges various aspects of his practice. Walls of locally harvested and woven plant fibers act as backdrop to a wooden altar in the shape of a pyramid that is a central aspect of the Rosario Cantao tradition and ceremony. González’s studio acts as hub for activities for the duration of this project. Drawings, tools, reference material and works in progress are also on view through August 8.
