Fish Story, curated by Raul Zamudio, is an exhibition of international artists who work in painting, work-on-paper, sculpture, photography, video, and installation. The exhibition’s title is culled from Allan Sekula’s 1995 eponymous multimedia artwork. Sekula’s project explored the machinations of globalization through the geopolitics of trade at the nexus of the international shipping industry. Fish Story revisits Sekula’s iconic corpus within different contexts twenty-one years later. As part of Contempo 2016: International Contemporary Art Festival in which art exhibitions will be presented in the city of Varna and in shipping containers on the shores of the Black Sea, Fish Story will be thematically opportune.
