The Galería Metropolitana is a unique art space in Santiago because of its location, construction, theoretical programming, and exhibition practice. Founded in 1998 by Luis Alarcón and Ana María Saveedra, who continue as directors, the gallery is physically connected to their house, which is in the working-class neighborhood of Pedro Aguirre Cerda on the outskirts of the city. Designed as a small warehouse, the gallery and home share a common wall-window-door that provides a flow of space between the two areas, underscoring the long-held ideal of conjoining art and life.

ENJUNDIA is the dialogue and appearance of the work projects of Danny Reveco and Paula Baeza (Chile) who have developed a practice of neosituationist art that points to the contemporary city as its expanded field of action, in this case through a practice that makes use of mural art, performance, art action and video; instruments that have allowed them to generate a series of radical and poetic works that Chile and the world think critically. ENJUNDIA is a duo project for Supermarket Art Fair 2020, which includes the (re) presentation of the Galería Metropolitana and is articulated from a staging that includes and mixes videos and actions on site. ENJUNDIA is also an exercise that reviews and reworkes the concept of identity, putting it in tension both with its essentialist dogmatic version and with its globalized and neoliberal version.
