On 25 June, MUSAC will present the group exhibition The Cry, a selection of 28 works by 17 international artists examining the meaning of the scream as a primeval gesture from a plethora of contexts and perspectives, both on a political level and within the private field of human expression. Through works by Absalon, Lara Favaretto, Jesper Just, Teresa Margolles and Ugo Rondinone, among others, the show takes the groundbase of Expressionism as a frame of reference to identify the sentient meaning of that gesture for contemporary art. The Canadian artist Terence Gower has been commissioned with the exhibition design. At the same time, performance will play a major role in the show with projects by Loreto Martínez Troncoso, Von Calhau and El Resplandor, on view throughout the exhibition in a bespoke space called Plaza Pública.
