Black Cube Pop Up Exhibition: Unclassified Site Museum SANGREE: Opening Reception
Unclassified Site Museum is a site-specific, temporary
art installation at a former RTD bus terminal in Denver. It will be open to the public from
September 15 – December 31, 2016 and is located on the plaza of the vacant terminal
on Market Street between 16th and 17th Streets in Downtown Denver.
About the Artists:
SANGREE is a Mexico City-based artistic collaboration between René Godínez Pozas and Carlos Lara. Between iconoclasm and minimal aesthetics, anthropology
and Land Art, the work of SANGREE seeks to explore the most fundamental questions of
humanity and its place in the universe. SANGREE’s exhibition with Black Cube is their first
institutional-level solo show in the United States. Other recent individual exhibitions include
Murmurs of Earth at the Chopo Museum and RING BELL, SUN, 21EARTH at Yautepec, both
in Mexico City. Upcoming exhibitions include Fingerprints of the Gods at Et al. etc, San
Francisco, along with other exhibitions in Los Angeles, New York, and at the Sala de Arte
Público Siqueiros in Mexico City. SANGREE is represented by Yautepec, Mexico City.
From a distance, the artwork appears to be a large, minimalist sculpture. As one gets
closer, the subterranean windows reveal an archeological dig site, in which visible
evidence of a pre-existing civilization can be seen. Architectural remnants of a multifamily
residential compound imagined to be more than 1750 years old will be exposed.
But, this window provides just a peek at what lies below. The entirety of the block-long
archeological site is visible though the scale-model displayed within the Black Cube
shipping container, which is also on-site.
Unclassified Site Museum is funded in part by the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation,
cultivating arts and leaders for a vibrant community. Special thanks to Continuum
Partners, for the site, coordination support, and hosting Black Cube. This project is
made possible through the support of The 3D Printing Store, the Consulate General of
Mexico in Denver, and Liberty Waste Management.
