From 19 Jan to 09 Apr 2023




Time Out is a curatorial project devised by Oficina CO2 and a group exhibition featuring the work of artists Ana Morales, Belén Arellano Cañizares, Clara Malpica and Delia Boyano. This show explores the impact of childhood on expressions of contemporary malaise, bearing in mind that this first stage of human development is fundamental to the construction of individuals and their identities. It aims to explore the various shared themes, creative resources and cultural influences of artists whose works address the relative importance of this stage of life.

We are interested in our generation, the generation of perpetual childhood or adolescence, incapable of ceasing to rely on their parents in one way or another. Our parents’ generation was able to reach adulthood, understood as a state of emancipation, independence and autonomy on every level (financial and emotional), but to us it seems like an impossible or elusive dream. The boundaries between childhood and adulthood have apparently been blurred, and we often find profoundly perverted childish references in the work of artists, perhaps vain attempts to recover lost innocence and tenderness.

The catalog that accompanies the exhibition will contain the texts of Oficina CO2, by various authors.

Opening: January 19, 7:00 p.m.

Guided tour: January 19 at 7:00 p.m., by the curators and the artists.

Children's workshop: February 11 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., developed by the teacher and visual artist Eugenio Rivas.

Workshop for adults: March 11 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., given by the artist Emmanuel Lafont and Carolina Arán on the occasion of Women's Day.

Registration for the workshops will open one week before.

This exhibition is carried out in collaboration with the Museum of Malaga.
