Worn Not, by and with Rubén Grilo

On 21 March we present the book Worn Not, the first monograph that critically examines Rubén Grilo’s heterogeneous artistic practice. The publication, edited by Puente Editores,  includes three newly written texts: Melanie Bühler maps out his production in search of a typology of artist that Grilo himself strives to deny; Zoey Lubitz dissects Grilo’s use of denim, unraveling its material implications in a reality increasingly affected by the digital; Anna Mikkola exchanges impressions about the multiple references that underpin his practice.

The presentation will take place in dialogue with the artist Julia Spínola.
