Mcchicken In The Art World - It's A Dash

McCHICKEN IN THE ART WORLD

25 May 2019, Pepino

The Lima-based Tokio Galería visited Madrid and organized there a one night show. Abdul asked me to participate and I gave him four small works, including It's a Dash, the first ever internet connected painting with an Amazon Dash button to order condoms.

I drove to Madrid and decided to stay there during the whole event from 5pm until 10pm to take the art works with me back to the studio. It was a long time to hang around for an introvert like me. I don't know many people in the Madrid art world and the most of those who I know I prefer not to talk with. I drank a couple of craft beers, was bored and decided to see the neighborhood.

I stopped at a campaign meeting of the Communist Party of the Workers of Spain. They also served beer to the comrades and sympathizers. I didn't want to drink (and drive) more but I enjoyed the political rhetorics en plein air. All the candidates were middle aged men and most of their supporters younger women.

At the art party the microbrewery sponsorship had ran out of beer. The creative class were drinking the same Mahou with the communist working class youth. Teresa Margolles walked in and everybody wanted a selfie with the art star. I went to the lavatory and there were two men sniffing coke. I opened the other toilet and there were two women kissing and doing lines.

I headed outside again and had a McChicken and alcohol free beer for dinner. Alone. It was so sad that I was laughing at myself. I went back to the gallery, packed the paintings, said goodbye to Abdul and drove 120km to home. I felt like McChicken.
