For her first solo exhibition in the United States, Spanish artist Dora García (b. Valladolid, 1965) focuses on her work of the recent years to open new platforms of analysis, reflection and visibility. Through a practice that prioritizes the use of performance in a participative manner, García will transform the Lois Foster Gallery into a living platform to investigate the relationship between audience, architecture and artistic work. Love With Obstacles includes both newly commissioned works and existing projects, and also features drawings, films, intervened documents and letters that will be activated through performances and readings to articulate a collective space where dialogue is central. Two newly commissioned works will be premiered at the Rose Art Museum: Amor Rojo (Red Love), focusing on Russian author, feminist, activist, political refugee and diplomat, Alexandra Kollontai (1872–1952), a courageous woman who advocated for radically transformed relationships between women and men; and The Labyrinth of Female Freedom, a performance that analyzes the different methodologies used by feminist movements to affect the world we live in, claiming their own space of visibility, and freedom. Love With Obstacles also brings together for the first time rarely seen documents from Brandeis University Special Collections that the artist has personally selected and classified, highlighting the institution´s unique legacy of committed work to social justice and in the struggle for human rights. Love With Obstacles is organized by Ruth Estévez, Senior Curator-at-Large, with research assistance from Rayelle Gardner and Emma Peters.
