It's not that there isn't good work on display - there are a few pieces worth mentioning - but this ranks as the least interesting show I've seen in the space: sparse, repetitive and poorly conceived, so artlessly curated by Sali Heraldez and Lilia Lamas that if I hadn't taken notes, it's unlikely I would have even remembered attending.
