Changing the last word of the title of the exhibition series, and performing its statement: To open the art center during the exhibition opening hours.

“During the exhibition the center will remain closed” is a series of solo exhibitions that take place when the art center is closed -from 20h to 24h- and which can be seen from the street, through a glass wall of the facade. Its title is taken from the text of the invitation that Robert Barry sent in 1969 for his three exhibitions Closed Gallery, in different cities, where he warned the audience that during the exhibitions the galleries would be closed: “During the exhibition the gallery will be closed”.

The intervention consists in reversing the statement and making it possible for the audience to access and use the space of the art center. A vinyl piece with the word OPEN is produced and placed over the existing one CLOSED on the information board. The title has also been changed in all the communication elements of the exhibition series.
