New York City’s parking regulations govern where vehicles can stop, stand and park in the city. The City’s parking regulations are part of the Traffic Rules and Regulations. This means that any vehicle parked or operated illegally, may be towed.
This is what happens with the regulation of the traffic of New York; while as regards the art? Is there a regulation to follow? The Art History  that has made use of philosophy and science, has it pursued a regulation?
Paradoxically, it seems that in the city of New York there is a possibility for artists  and creative to stop, stand and dream for a while. The city of a thousand opportunities, possibilities, hope, but when you get to the point of not being able to “hit the big time” it is towed on.
Some ideas do not need a physical location, are fluid, changing and regenerate over time. In the past, the futurists claimed that museums were the graves of the artists, a kind of “dead end”. Bauman describes the society as a force liquid, with a relative importance to physical locations.
This group show refers to “cogito ergo sum” of Cartesio, the father of modern philosophy and mathematics.  He argued that the thinking subject testifying its existence, so the artists do not have to follow the laws or regulations preset but to continue to stimulate their own research and production that witnesses its existence, an existence free not exclusively controlled by regulations.
