LILIANA BLOCH GALLERY: "Predicament of the Subject

JAN 5 - FEB 10, 2019

Predicament of the Subject is the title of Myra Barraza’s new solo exhibition at Liliana Bloch Gallery. The title “Predicament of the Subject” stems from Aristotle’s recognition of ten predicaments, or attributes that sum the range of human thought, in which one, or other, could find a category for any, and all concepts.
