from the press release...
"The title of the exhibition references Jorge Luis Borges’ short story “The Immortal,” written in 1949. “The Immortal,” in short, is a story about the infinite flux of the universe’s (and human) permutations and the dreadful character of its endless repetitions. The story lays bare the banality and entropic characteristic of all human enterprise, the erosion of content through time and the impossibility of anything new. Everything has already been said. Considered an important precursor and originator of many Postmodern devices, it deals with themes such as the death of the author, pastiche, intertextuality, self-reflexiveness and disbelief in master narratives."
