This event has ended.

Pablo’s Birthday presents the first solo exhibition in the US by Spanish artist Gala Knörr ‘The Selfish Meme’. Knörr’s practice’s curious and humorous nature expresses and depicts her interpretations and remarks on how society navigates within the online and tangible realms, reshaping our habits and pushing contemporary identities into new dialogues. The works selected comment on the cultural practice of narcissism being a conductor for technological advances that have come to control and dominate our lives as consumers. Our identity, our tastes, and personality are objects of commerce inside a mirage on the Internet. Simultaneously, social media has a radical aspect to it, due to its accessibility we can share content that is not regularly found on mainstream outlets, yet sometimes making it hard to understand and question our everyday realities. ‘The Selfish Meme’ gives space through painting to radical moments that celebrate diversity and the use of humor as a coping mechanism within the increasingly and rapidly shifting socio-political times, trying to generate glimpses of existing narratives that rewrite our present history through painting, a traditional medium that has depicted through the years our collective history
