Today could be your day What’s your day going to be like? Smile, it could be your last day Look for the positive side of every day Chose what your day will be like Give each day the chance to be the best one in your life Today may be a great day Any day can be your day Every day is the chance to change your life Give each day the chance to be the best one in your life Today’s going to be a great day Begin every day with optimism! What’s your day going to be like? It’s going to be a great day It’s your day, make a wish Everyday demands happiness Don’t let anyone ruin your day Every day may be the start of something wonderful The best moment is today If your day is bitter, shake it up a bit Take the next step: today may be your day An attitude, a way of approaching practice, a leftover of nineties irony made into a museum piece. “Hoy puede ser tu día (Today could be your day)” appropriates motivational discourse, which over the last decade we have seen printed all over consumer products, to bring together a group of artists characterized by meta-modern self-exploration of their own condition. The eternal struggle of Guillermo, the narratives of Amalia, the figures of Jaume, the boredom Paul and Tilman, the allegory of Real Madrid: all appear as reminders of the fine line between artist and work, between irony and sincerity, of the universal capacity to make a start on our other selves separated by thousands of miles of distance. Death to style. Long live attitude. Ali A. Maderuelo y Julia Castelló. Independent curators.
