Artist Armando Cortés returns to his installation Castillos, on view in Ceramics in the Expanded Field, to present a new iteration of aún los gallos lloran (Even Roosters Cry), a performance that activates his artwork. Using the traditional sport of cockfighting as a metaphor for the rituals of masculine bravado and the relationships between men, Cortés presents a balancing act between two characters, whose interactions on a seesaw-like stage reflect the changing contours of their connections to each other and to the histories embedded in the installation objects used in the performance.
