Guillermo García Cruz’s artworks explore different mediums and challenge the equilibrium between form and concept, in order to create visual experiments based on realistic and fictitious structures of exhibition spaces, galleries, and museums. His work examines the different interrelations of an art work with its environment. The contextual space becomes the underlying theme of this work, disputing the issue of validation within the current system of contemporary art.
