PSJM

Multimedia Art

PSJM acts as a commercial cutting-edge art brand. Their work questions the economic reality with an interdisciplinary and critical practice emphasizing spectacular seduction techniques of late capitalism. PSJM concentrate on creating paintings of various sizes and media including lacquered aluminum, laminate on wood, acrylic on natural linen and gouache or ink on paper. In addition, the artist duo has expanded its creative work to sculptures, mural paintings and videos focusing on economy and society.
Their work has been featured in numerous exhibitions throughout Europe, USA, Chile, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Cuba, Russia and South Korea – including “Beyond the Tropics” within the context of the 56th Venice Biennale, PS1- MOMA, New York; Riflemaker Gallery; Fundació Joan Miró etc.
In parallel to their visual research, carrying out an intense theoretical and literary activity, they have published the novel “La Isla de Hidrógeno” (Empatía, Madrid, 2010) and the books “Neutralizados” (Empatía, Madrid, 2009), “Fuego amigo. Dialéctica del arte político en el capitalismo total” (Cendeac, Murcia, 2015) and, in collaboration with José Mª Durán, “Total Market: Mercado Total” (AURAL EDICIONES, Alicante, 2015).
PSJM’s works have been included in “Art & Agenda: Political Art and Activism” (Gestalten, Berlin, 2011) and in “Younger than Jesus. Artist Directory. The essential handbook to the future of art” published by the New Museum (Phaidon, NY, 2012), “Arte Español Contemporáneo 1992-2013” (La Fábrica, Madrid, 2014) and “Come Together: The Rise of Cooperative Art and Design” (Princeton Architectural Press, New York, 2014).
