SAVE THE DATA
A contemporary mixed media art solo exhibition by David Palacious
AFRICAN ARTISTS´ FOUNDATION and FORD FOUNDATION cordially invites you to SAVE THE DATA by DAVID PALACIOS
The exhibition “Save the Data” gathers David Palacios' ideas developed since 2012 as part of his project “Art Report“ in which he juxtaposes art codes with statistical information and news.
Palacios takes as a reference, issues on the global and Nigerian agenda such as the global economy, international investment, oil prices, military spend, social issues and poverty levels and presents them with an interdisciplinary approach, in works that at first glance seem innocuous graphics and reports.
Over the last few years, the artist has been using his works to illustrate information on social, political and economic issues, and also as a tool for self-reflexion on the limits of representation.
The exhibit includes graphics-paintings, digital prints, installations, and videos that take a critical look at models of representation of the information industry using visual news agency mechanisms.
