Marta de Gonzalo and Publio Pérez Prieto participate in exhibition Poética de la memoria, organized by Palacio de los Condes de Gabia in Granada, untill 7 May. The exhibition is curated by Ramón Barbancho and the following artists participate in it:

Roberto Aguirrezabala, Fernando Baena, Jorge Barbi, Ana Condado, Marcelo Expósito,Marta de Gonzalo y Publio Pérez Prieto, Nuria Güell, Rogelio López Cuenca, Gregorio Méndez, Ana Navarrete, Lola Pérez, Espe Pons.

In the work that our artists present,Más muertas vivas que nunca(2002), a young dead woman speaks in our ears. After participating in the land collectivizations in Extremadura and Andalusia, he was one of the 4,000 people shot in the Plaza de Toros de Badajoz starting on 14 August 1936, the day the city was taken by Franco's troops during the Civil War. She speaks from death, waiting for what the living can make of their societies.

The Generación 2023 exhibition features different sculptural and audiovisual projects conceived from a spatial logic and organised around terms that question themes related to current issues. The installations and expanded objects are open to completion by spectators as they move through the space.This year the jury was composed of Aimar Arriola, a freelance curator and associate researcher (2020-2023) at Azkuna Zentroa, Bilbao; Yaiza Hernández, lecturer in visual cultures at Goldsmiths, University of London; and Catalina Lozano, chief curator at the Basque contemporary art museum, ARTIUM Museoa.

Un viaje eterno by Mar Guerrero starts from an investigation into the evolution of the dog and the artificial manipulation of canine breeds by humans, which is related to genetic manipulation in biotechnology. The main objective is to investigate ecology and temporality from the reference of animal genetic manipulation and the obsolescence of materials and resources, emphasizing the concepts of recycling and reuse through the use of organic and/or discarded materials, such as silencers from motorcycle, blown glass and canine hair.

UNLIDis a project which focuses on world food policies and the food industry. It consists of a series of sculpture-paintings thought to shape an installation that reflects and questions the origin and impact of processed foods that are daily purchased in supermarket chains and department stores. UNLID is developed from the recreation, appropriation and reinterpretation of the packaging of processed food from the corporate monopoly. The alteration of the original graphic layout of the packaging is intended to shed light on the power system, international policies and agricultural models.

Forecast Form: Art in the Caribbean Diaspora, 1990s–Today

Nov 19, 2022 - Apr 23, 2023

The 1990s were a period of profound social, political, and economic transformation. From the dissolution of the Eastern Bloc to the rise of transnational trade agreements, the decade’s large-scale shifts ushered in an era of international connectivity and social upheaval. In the cultural sector, art exhibitions expanded and turned global, and dialogues around identity, especially by those who have suffered systemic oppression, were featured front and center in cultural debates. The forces of this pivotal decade also had a major effect on the production, circulation, and presentation of art from the Caribbean.

The exhibition is curated byCarla Acevedo-Yates, Marilyn and Larry Fields Curator, withIris Colburn, Curatorial Assistant,Isabel Casso, former Susman Curatorial Fellow, andNolan Jimbo, Susman Curatorial Fellow.

Hay un río de oro negro bajo A Coruña
EL PAIS.BABELIA  Hay un río de oro negro bajo A Coruña

Gloria Crespo Maclennan

‘Camiño negro’ es una serie fotográfica que recorre el itinerario trazado por un oleoducto soterrado a lo largo de seis kilómetros en la ciudad gallega, que pone de relevancia las contradicciones entre la idea de progreso y otras alternativas de subsistenciaExiste una ruta soterrada en A Coruña que no es fácil de detectar. Se extiende a los largo de seis kilómetros, entre arrabales, carreteras y zonas verdes. Un camino de ida y vuelta, por donde circulan toneladas de petróleo. Parte del puerto hasta alcanzar la refinería del valle de Bens, pero su recorrido es solo visible en su primer tramo, cuando cruza la carretera desde el puerto y a su paso por el barrio de los Castros. El resto queda oculto a los ojos de los transeúntes. Solo unas balizas bicolor, las cámaras de seguridad o distintos carteles advierten indirectamente de su existencia. Un camino de oro negro que revela la transformación de un territorio y pone en evidencia las contradicciones entra la idea de progreso y la pervivencia de otras formas de vida y subsistencia. La tensión entre la población y una industria pesada que Damián Ucieda (A Coruña, 1980) ha sabido captar con su cámara para dar forma a un libro y a una exposición que comparten título, Camiño Negro

Description of the day





Berta Cáccamo, Descrición do día (Description of the day), 1988–90, mixed medium on canvas and board, each piece 27 1/2 x 21 1/2ARTFORUM

Berta Cáccamo

Calle Jorge Guillén, 6
January 29–May 15, 2022

After living in Barcelona, Paris, and Rome, Berta Cáccamo returned in the mid-1990s to her native Galicia, where she made “Horas felices” (Happy Hours), a series of one-line abstractions in which a thick, sinuous brushstroke expands across each canvas, folding in on itself like an intestine. The series lends its title to this exhibition, which brings together paintings by the artist dated from the late 1980s to 2018 alongside notebooks, sketches, annotations, and a collection of knickknacks and discarded objects.

These years map a trajectory, from the discreet informalism of her early output, to the embrace of a more autonomous stroke—slow and meandering—to colorful abstractions, to a more process-oriented approach open to various mediums and techniques. In untitled works from 1990, the paper absorbs the ink, creating organic marbling patterns. Other times, as in Blue, 1996, the brush is dragged so that, with the winding or straightness of the gesture, paint accumulates on the edges of the stroke or is dispersed by the movement of the bristles. From her own statements, we know that Cáccamo conceived of painting as a method of introspection where literature and philosophy also played a part. Here, we are deprived of her words, left to somehow content ourselves with a body of work cut tragically short with the artist’s death in 2018, at age fifty-eight. Seeing how the same motifs and colors emerge repeatedly in her work, we can fantasize that painting, even in the absence of its author, continues to converse with her.

Description of the day
MAR 12 2022 - Loup Sarion
Text by Emma McCormick-Goodhart x Bureau Eponym


“Brassaï: In the lower strata of the valley of Les Eyzies, excavation archaeologists had the brilliant idea of preserving a cross-section four to five meters high, with layers built up over millennia. It’s like a mille-feuille.
Picass And you know what’s responsible? It’s dust! The earth doesn’t have a housekeeper to do the dusting. And the dust that falls on it every day remains there. Everything that’s come down to us from the past has been conserved by dust.”—Pablo Picasso to Brassaï
“It's just dirt, really.”—Peter Schlesinger
. . .
Brassaï’s “mille-feuille,” Picasso’s phantom duster: such stratification is a leitmotif in Loup Sarion’s two new parallel bodies of work in Saliva, of architectonic resin panel reliefs, and nose forms sculptured in beeswax.
Sarion’s panels’ sedimentations—his “mille-feuille”—are not so much of timescale, though, but of site and species of skin. Composites and complex infoldings, in part, of fissure and cupule-filled walls of his studio, and floors of his apartment, his panel casts, via the molds that mothered them, migrate lived architectures in Bushwick, Brooklyn, to neutraler ones in Cologne. As if skin tissue being grafted, they clothe gallery walls in sudden synthetic material fictions of an epidermal kind of urban Palaeolithic, which, in feeling, share something of the inevitability and drama of a fossil’s sedimentary re-emergence as readymade relief. What was first floor is now wall—not that such axes hold, as in caves, which are simply volumes wrought by water. Spatialities of uninterrupted geological fabric.
Here, casts molt city surfaces, turning hide in their unpeeling, and into which real dust—like white noise—paints itself, by itself, in particle heap. An aesthetics of the nan specs of black floor paint, rust flecks from a belt. Even sheen endures its translation from negative to positive. One thinks of Heidi Bucher’s “skinnings,” of interior architectures coated in latex and then stripped, rendered entire, except Sarion makes stranger, chimeric figurations; ones that move further from their sources. His are haptic, but unfaithful facsimiles—and in their playful imaging of fabric and occasional frottage-applied pigment, whether charcoal or metal dust, more like Pati Hill’s xeroxes than indexical molds.
Leather belts, mostly sidewalk foraged, their skin still legible as such; walking canes, always sensory prostheses and spatial stethoscopes that “see” for us. A shirt, uncannily soft even in newfound solid form, though note its loose soil hem. These layerings have their origin in his and any’s lovers’ clothes’ own entwinings—the hasty undress in the kitchen, the strewing—inadvertent mapmaking reencountered as chance logic mornings after. As casts of molds that themselves “kissed” walls, Sarion’s panels are love letters of a mille-feuille kind. Of an eros of the imprint.
Nose extrusions, in counterpoint, perform a prosthetic kiss of remote sensing—as aerial, olfactive “tongues,” and mouths for molecules, whose machinations remain occluded from view. They insist, sotto voce, that unmoldable anatomical cavities are the lived architectures that give us to sense, to wish to touch, to want to mold, in the first place. Urges that exceed origin.

A Drunken Boat: Eclecticism, Institutionalism and Disobedience in the ‘80s

Nouvel Building, Floor 0

In the 1980s, different exhibitions sculpted the sensibilities of the time. For the 1982 Documenta in Kassel, the curator Rudi Fuchs contemplated the possibility of titling the exhibition The Drunken Boat, after Arthur Rimbaud’s poem, in reference to an art drifting aimlessly, wandering outside of “style wars”. This absence of hegemonies would end up translating into an eclecticism of forms that defined artistic practices in that decade. Part of historiography interpreted it as a shift towards conservative values, where the absence of history and critique, as well as the recovery of artistic individualism, corresponded to a social and political reality dominated by the Reagan-Thatcher era.

The fledgling democracy in Spain would drive an institutionalisation of art that replaced social struggles against Francoism, and within this context the creation of the ARCO Art Fair and the Centro de Arte Reina Sofía came with an intense policy of national and international exhibitions, and a return to painting as the lingua franca. Opposite this apparent conservatism, a series of practices of disobedience rose to the surface, expressing their discontent with institutions and facing crises such as the AIDS pandemic. An art that embraced post-punk attitudes, new versions of feminism and the subversion of bodies.

HORAS FELICES     de Berta Cáccamo Patio Herreriano.

Museo de arte contemporáneo Español . Valladolid 29 -1 / 29-5/2022

“Horas Felices” es una exposición de carácter retrospectivo en torno a la obra de la artista gallega Berta Cáccamo (Vigo, 1963-2018), una de las pintoras más relevantes de su generación. En ella, su comisario, Juan de Nieves, propone un juego de asociaciones poéticas entre obras de diferentes momentos, desde finales de los años ochenta hasta su muerte en 2018. El título de la exposición hace referencia a una serie de pinturas realizada a mediados de los noventa, un sencillo enunciado mediante el que la artista apela a un momento vital muy preciso de reafirmación de la pintura como práctica liberadora. Berta Cáccamo se formó en Barcelona, donde entró en contacto con la tradición catalana, y marchó en 1989 a París, donde comenzó a forjar un estilo propio basado en una intensa y rigurosa reflexión sobre el hecho de pintar. De esta incesante investigación da fe el buen número de dibujos y de cuadernos que le acompañaron toda su vida y que pueden verse en esta exposición. A su regreso a Galicia, Cáccamo trabajó exhaustivamente en una pintura en la que vertía, a un mismo tiempo, ricas referencias a la historia del arte y un poderoso caudal emocional. La programación de "Berta Cáccamo. Horas felices” responde a nuestra voluntad de revisar y presentar la obra de mujeres pintoras activas en nuestro país y pertenecientes a generaciones diversas, como Soledad Sevilla o Mercedes Mangrané.

Hallazgos recientes sugieren que la capa de hielo que cubre la luna Europa contiene cloruro de sodio (NaCI), el principal componente de la sal que encontramos en la Tierra. Esta referencia sirve de punto de partida para desarrollar una serie de imágenes que simulan fotografías tomadas de la superfície de esta luna de Júpiter, siendo imágenes procedentes de la costa mallorquina. Esta dualidad espacial nos sitúa en un territorio invadido por la ambiguedad y la incertidumbre. Las esferas que componen las imágenes emergen en un mapa de movimientos distantes y encuentros estelares.

Del hijo, la respiración’, de RODRÍGUEZ-MÉNDEZ (Proxecto de intervención en Capela do Carmen)
Dos superficies de tela de 9x6m. sobre sendos bastidores son colocadas en los laterales de la Capilla del Carmen en Lugo. Estos lienzos contienen en su parte superior todo el aceite que ha sido entregado por los miembros de la cofradía del Carmen y depositado en una vasija dispuesta en el interior de la iglesia.En Del hijo, la respiraciónel aceite se va desvelando verticalmente por la superficie de la tela, como una presencia que se descubre lentamente y que habla de un peso, una forma corporal sutil extendida construyendo a su vez un paradójico y vívido plano.Me resulta especialmente emotivo que ese material (el aceite) provenga de los espacios íntimos y privados de las familias de los cofrades para unirse en un solo “cuerpo” en la vasija, que posteriormente, en un proceso lento y sin intervención de ningún tipo irá ocupando las dos superficies de tela en una transfor- mación que parecería no acabar nunca, como lento y sin término es el proceso del conocimiento.Contiene en el título de esta obra la atención a dos materiales que simbólicamente se encuentran indivisibles, el oxigeno y el aceite, la condición física limi- tante de un cuerpo en el misterio de ser vivo desde la pertenencia a un origen, un padre y por lo tanto a alguien más y mayor que sí mismo y la de la expan- sión rítmica de la inhalación del oxigeno que como “membrana inmaterial” lo ocupa todo y lo vivifica.

La exposición Ensayo antes de la actuación es un proyecto de investigación curatorial que busca generar un territorio en proceso de crecimiento. Una especie de fase  preparatoria donde las diferentes propuestas se encaminan a reflexionar sobre la presencia corporal, sobre las posibles interacciones entre los cuerpos y el espacio, y en cómo las partes pueden convertirse en un todo complementario.La propuesta pretende profundizar en las múltiples posibilidades que nos brinda el ensayo y el error entendidos como experimento abierto a la incertidumbre, una prueba
para conocer si algo funciona o no y en base a esto, ajustarnos y enlazarnos en una supuesta sincronización dentro de un entorno que se encuentra marcado por diferentes pautas.De esta forma la exposición se entiende como un espacio dinámico, un lugar que los artistas harán crecer exponencialmente a través de una serie de actividades que
buscarán la participación activa de los diferentes públicos.

Pongo mi pie desnudo en el umbral

Fundación DIDAC
19 september / 27 november
Curator: David Barro

Pongo mi pie desnudo en el umbral is an exhibition project with three layers: a short story written by me for the occasion, the exhibition’s  device and a collaboration with the artist María Roja through a specific performance.

The title —a verse stolen from the galician poet José Ángel Valente— leads us to think of a story that could end or begin, but a story that goes forward by walking, touching, stepping, as happens in the short story that forms the backbone of this whole project and the exhibition.

This short story is the tale of a find: the travel diaries of a woman named Dirse who made a pilgrimage from Antwerp (Flanders) to A Guarda (Galicia), sometime between the 16th and 17th centuries, and who spent her last days on Mount Santa Trega, looking at the river mouth of the Miño, the threshold that separates Galicia from Portugal.

The exhibition is presented as a collection of fragmented and overlapping points of view on the history of Dirse that punctuate the room and articulate a spatial narrative around the landscape, spirituality, ritualism, architecture and vernacular forms.

28 de Septiembre — 9 de Noviembre 
Bad Actors is a painting exhibition that takes its cue from Pirandello’s play Six Characters in Search of an Author. The play calls into question the nature of reality, artifice and authenticity. Each artist will present one significant painting. All the paintings are ambitious in scale, either sharing or exceeding the proportions of the human body. They will be displayed informally – propped, wedged, or hung from the columns of the gallery – asserting a physical presence in the space. This exposes both the factual human activity of their making and the illusion of the picture plane, or the work’s character. Each painting utters a private monologue. These utterances will connect across the space to create interactions and a constantly shifting story.

Engel Leonardo proposes for the balcony of MAC Niterói the sample of a series of colored sculptures that have their origin in the drawings of Flávio de Carvalho. With its balcony as a privileged place - that certainly recalls the panoramic use of a lighthouse - each of the sections of the building will receive a sculpture that comes from the various elements extracted from Carvalho's project: door and tiles, in addition to the guacos and palms designed by the Brazilian architect.

JUL 20 2019 - Engel Leonardo
The relations between the human and the history, the architecture and the material culture are some of the central topics in the work of Engel Leonardo. His production is usually based on research on modern tropical architecture, stories repressed by modernity, and the transmission of indigenous and African knowledge through objects generally seen as handcrafted, folkloric or ethnographic.
In "Manoguayabo", the works use as a starting point the research on the work of Flavio de Carvalho and Lina Bo Bardi, as well as the painting "O lago" by Tarsila do Amaral and the traditional Dominican egg kills. Creating a conversation with the viewer which is developed through the use of structures of geometric character and modernist ancestry, Leonardo seeks to reinterpret elements of the nature of the Caribbean and the tropics; a reduction of forms, colors, and relationships that account for an immensely rich but equally complex context.

RODRIGUEZ-MENDEZ carries out an editorial and exhibition project for CICLÓN, coordinated by David Silva and Misha Bies.

Opening the 31 of July
Santiago de Compostela


The work of Rodríguez-Méndez analyzes the material principles of sculpture and the essential physical experience of man in projects that combine action and sculpture to explore the interaction or balance of energies between the two.
The artist's use of forms and materials such as cylinders, peat, oil, sound, words and the body are understood as intangible, as elementary or absolute geometries. These questions and conditions the processes of construction and decision making that leads to the final result.
Using languages of marginal influence in the exhibition space, Rodríguez-Méndez exploits the incorporation of materials and the open and latent state of their condition to configure a game of loss and restitution that testifies to the definitive and essential nature of life and change.

Only a few months after its official opening, Museo Patio Herreriano presented an ambitious exhibition entitled Cuatro dimensiones, a project that seeked to survey the developments in the field of sculpture taking the works in the Colección de Arte Contemporáneo as a point of departure.

Una dimension ulterior, installed in five large rooms on the second and third floors of our Museum, takes that show as a reference in order to explore the developments in the field of sculpture up until our present day. It is formed by some of the works included back then and many belonging to contemporary artists working today. If Cuatro Dimensiones eluded the grand tales of Art History, Una dimensión ulterior seeks to enhance the value of minor histories. This is why we have chosen the indefinite article “Una” (“a”) instead of the definite article “La”  (“the”), because, as it is well known, there is no longer room for univocal readings of the art of our times, and the one we have here at stake is only one of many other possibilities. However, what we try to put forward here is our humble ambition to present some of today’s key aspects of sculptural practice.

Commissariat : Dorothée Dupuis

Estableciendo un paralelo entre las formas del arte y las formas de la naturaleza, la exposición tomará la forma lúdica de un gran invernadero.Para esta exposición, la curadora Dorothée Dupuis se inspiró en el famoso jardín de Las Pozas, un logro caprichoso y utópico, ubicado en el estado de San Luis Potosí en México, por el poeta Edward James en la década de 1970.Sujeto de una guerra interminable tanto contra sus poderes destructivos como por el control de sus recursos, la naturaleza es un Eldorado que los humanos consideraron desde muy temprano como una deidad simbolizada en diferentes mitologías por animales, figuras femeninas y otras entidades a menudo antropomórficas.

ABR 20 2019 - Mar Guerrero
Thinking about the gesture inevitably leads us to think about movement, a form of non-verbal communication in which the body, face or hands take the lead to transmit messages through other visible expressions. The gestural act implies a meaning, a determined intentionality that encloses a more complex reality, visible through small nuances enhanced by the instants experienced in shared contexts. This is where we question whether all space can be lived in terms of performativity, if the narrative of the gesture can be merged to amplify our links in a kind of new "affective management" that makes us participants in the spaces we now identify like ours. Reiterating the image to make it real is the basis of any performative process and is something also present in the symbolic construction, the alliance that exists between a signifier and a meaning.

MAR 9 2019 - Nacho Criado
El juego del arte
Rothko committed suicide in New York, 1970. The figure of the painter was then evoked by Nacho Criado in one of his first solo exhibitions in the Sen gallery in Madrid, with a series of works that were framed in the minimalist poetics and that supposed a radical break with the proposals of Madrid's art scene then. With this and other works of that show, the artist considered the installation, which would be one of the lines that would guide his later creation. This work also assumes the introduction of color in the minimalist scheme, and in fact, compared to the usual neutrality of minimalism, this piece by Criado based a good part of its meaning on the chromatic aspect.
The present work is constituted by several rectangular tables that, leaning on one another forming different angles and inclinations, reach the verticality in the wall. The tables create different strata or phases: a physical progression that affects the color in its luminosity and causes a series of gradations on the scale of the black, contained at its ends by the wood painted in red that act as a visual limit. Within the minimalist aesthetic in which this early work by Nacho Criado is included, innovative in the Spanish art scene, the dedication to Rothko acts as an evocation not only of the chromatic qualities of his painting, but also of an idea of ​​absolute art that Simón Marchán has defined as "contemplative, pure and reductionist, in which the real and the virtual are already counterbalanced".

Savage Carnival. Has only been celebarted in Bruselas for the past five years,but it brings together characters and costumes inspired by ancient traditions from around the world.Although the carnival as we know it today is a festival related to Christianity and Lent,its origins are much older and derive from the celebration of the summer solstice. Clara Montoya is a part of the community in charge of organizing this contemporary urban version of the festival each year.Although she normally works in sculpture,in this instance Montoya has decided to employ acrylic on canvas to portary her companions and their costumes Nonetheless there is a sculptural element to these vestments that resolves their relationship to the city space and the radical,festive aspects of performance, establishing the axes that traverse these paintings..In the savage carnival each participant makes their own costumes,reinterpreting examples from ancient pagan carnivals that in some cases are still being celebrated today ,in which the disguises represent ancestral fears and desires .The characters that roam the heart of the city throughout the day are Christmass tree warriors, monsters,half-human half animal beings, machine-men which are constructed in the days leading up to the celebration.At the end of the carnival many of the costumes are burned in a large bonfire.

ABR 20 2018 - vítor Mejuto
critics´ picks ARTFORUM
For centuries, the education of painters revolved around scrutinizing masterpieces in order to grasp how their makers resolved problems of a purely technical nature. No one looks at painting as mercilessly, and with as little sense of metaphor, as a painter. In “Pintor en la corte,” (Painter in the Court), Vítor Mejuto revisitsDiego Velázquez,Antonello da Messina,Jaime Serra,Francisco Goya, andTitian, among others. Mejuto’s small-format paintings are concise and honed, to say nothing of elegant, reproductions of the geometric aspects of some of those masters’ works.Despite its schematic proposal, the show is friendly, even domestic, because the images distributed around the gallery are familiar. Particularly suggestive is the 2018 series “sepulcro vacío” (empty grave). These works, hung in a somewhat scattered way along a wall, explore how different painters have treated a space miraculously unfilled: the gravestone and the ditch. Initially inspired byJuan de Flandes’sResurrection of Lazarus, 1514–19, the series encompasses an assortment of tombs from over the course of art history that Mejuto has compiled. From these images, the artist has created paintings that are either imitations, interpretations, or inventions.

Viewers embark on a journey to decipher the fragments in Mejuto’s paintings: a swath of robe, a wedge of building, a piece of brocade. The small canvases, like lost puzzle pieces, conjure memories of complete masterpieces. Abounding with citations and suggestions, the exhibition reveals the contemporariness of the well-known images that form the basis of Western art. It is with good reason, then, that a number of titles reference burials and resurrections. Each generation pays, in its fashion, its debt to its ancestors.Translated from Spanish byJanie Brodie.Joaquín Jesús Sánchez

Centinela exposición en TABACALERA
 Centinela is the project that Daniel Boccato presents specifically for the studies of Tabacalera. The ‘centinelas’ are watchful lions that are in a moment between action and inaction while they watch us carefully from their posts. Descending from the European heraldic traditions, it is common to find them today in gardens protecting the doors of contemporary homes, directing their gaze to whoever accesses them or thinks about doing so. Sitting on pedestals, these lions are concrete replicas of classic sculptures, this time perched on objects from another era that have lost their function over time. The classic white pedestal generally acts as a separation between the sculpture and the ground, between the object and the abject, art and architecture, high and low. The attention usually tends to focus on what is dynamic, while the static is usually in the background. Thus, when the sculpture becomes a constant and the support in a variable, the roles are inverted and the sculpture becomes a support for the pedestal. Daniel Boccato’s work explores the relationship between form and language, abstraction and figuration, constantly challenging the spectator's impulses to label, declare, categorize and differentiate. Unruly and even cumbersome, their pieces put to the test the limits of painting, sculpture and drawing, made with industrial materials such as agglomerates, concrete, polyester, as well as with ready-made objects,
presenting simple shapes of striking colors.

Here is a recent project realized in collaboration with Bradly Dever Treadaway and Jason Thompson for the Miller Gallery in Kutztown PA.The Antenna of the Raceis a media-based installation that centers on three conceptual foundations: engaging Marshall McCluhan’s theory on historic labor division as a primer for thriving in an ‘acoustic environment’, local Pennsylvanian history in the patenting of a device capable of the diffusion of public television and a critical deconstruction of authenticity and cultural appropriation. McCluhan’s examination of the simultaneity of the media assault sets the service culture as one of playing roles in contrast to specialization and literacy of a ruling class as pursuing goals, ultimately determining that the role players are more capable of thriving in a hyper saturated acoustic world given their forced adaptability.

Christian García Bello.

If Christian García Bello’s second show at this gallery seems to stage no major overhauls of his first, progress nonetheless lies within the reaffirmation of his perseverance. In this light, the exhibition represents a remarkable step forward in his still-young career. Titled, somewhat awkwardly, “Ahora no es pretérito todavía” (Now it is still not the past), the show reflects on how our relationship with time informs our perception of space. His drawings and sculptures share a precise blend of representation and abstraction, mathematical rhetoric and transcendent nebulousness, as he draws from rigorous classical humanism and from hazier Romantic movements in equal measure.

On entering the gallery, one easily detects the relevance of rhythm in his exquisite installation. It stems from a careful study of human proportions in the context of the gallery’s singular architecture. Drawing out our gaze, a vertical wooden form expands toward the wall, punctuated by both drawings and sculptures that share a distinctive ingredient: On all of them, thin layers of wax subtly accumulate to produce dense surfaces with an enthralling aura. They represent architectural motifs as well as shadows and hollow spaces, relentlessly swinging between the tangible and the ethereal. The three wooden sculptures on view are found objects that evolve into abstractions evoking a melancholic sense of longing, while unambiguously reflecting shapes and symbols drawn from traditional art of Galicia. Apathetic toward fuzzy trends and unnegotiably committed to austere formalism, García Bello understands his work as a body of complex textures providing a humble and serene take on the infinite.

Galería Formato Comodo
4 February - 31 March

Engel Leonardo’s practice performs a difficult balancing act: synthesizing Caribbean geography and visual culture without reducing its complexity. Research into the craft aesthetics of his native Dominican Republic manifests through several forms. Titled ‘Ansapit’, the Creole name for one of the four main land crossings from Haiti, the show shares the name with a dress piece whose pattern documents the popular architecture of the region. Leonardo’s Vevés paintings made with plantain juice and depicting abstracted voodoo symbols, and his Lista series, which transforms traditional basketwork found in the borderlands between the Republic and Haiti, further explore porous limits: between neighbouring countries, art and design, and high modernism and a craft vernacular.

  • Escuchar con los ojos. Arte sonoro en España, 1961-2016

The exhibition Listening with the eyes, Sound Art in Spain (1961-2016) was created thanks to the invited curators José Iges and José Luis Maire, and with the collaboration of many other artists and experts. Its aim is to show the origins, the diversity of the trajectories and the vitality of the Art Sound made in Spain since 1961.

Through the extended range of more than 400 selected works and a large documentary material, the exhibition wants to make visible (and above all audible) the sound organised with artistic criterias in Spain, even in times (during the 60's and 70's) when the proper term “Sound Art” hadn't been created yet.

Dates: October 14th, 2016 - January 15th, 2017

Asphalte Charleroi

High on Place de la Digue stands the elegant outline of a figure. Sometimes it appears to be sleeping. At others, it is dancing. This sculpture, neither man nor woman, neither adult nor child, has been inspired by giants. Just as we dress up folkloric characters to suit the season, this figure transforms as the year progresses. At once a public bench, an esplanade and a family-sized picnic table, the giant is a meeting point, but it is also a collection of climbable shapes of different heights. As a deconstructed puppet, each part of the Géant de la Digue’s body is interchangeable: the hand can easily become a crown, or the leg a sword.

Distanced Traces
FORMATOCOMODO presents the performance:

May 31st at 9pm.«Trazas Distanciadas» (Distanced traces) is a reflection around a serie of projected images, taking the form of perfomative conference. It builds itself according to a free association between images and ideas, contrasting so with the analytic constructions of the ruling discourses and its rhetorical patterns. Privileging the sensible, the subjective -that belong to the perception as pattern and place of the knowledge’s subject-, and relating it with the economic, social and aesthetic order of our time.

Sound Art in Spain (1961–2016)

February 10 – May 21, 2016

The exhibition spaces: Palma, Cuenca and Madrid

Sound Art in Spain (1961–2016) traces the origins, history, diversity and vitality of the sound art produced in Spain from 1961 to the present. By means of the range and variety of works selected and extensive documentation, it purports to make visible (and, above all, audible) the ways in which sound has been employed to create artistic works in this country as far back as the 1960s and 1970s – decades before the term 'sound art' was coined to describe this phenomenon.

In addition to providing a fresh look at works from the foundation's own collection, Sound Art in Spain (1961–2016) will highlight the contributions of Zaj, Isidoro Valcárcel Medina and Lugán (Luis García Nuñez), whose pioneering experimental and cross-disciplinary works paved the way for the emergence of sound art as a genre, as well as an overview of works by a wide variety of other artists such as Walter Marchetti, Juan Muñoz, Francisco López, José Antonio Orts, Eduardo Polonio, Esther Ferrer, Juan Hidalgo, Wolf Vostell, Javier Aguirre, Nacho Criado, Francesc Abad, Eugènia Balcells and Eugeni Bonet.

Focus Bulgaria at viennacontemporary 2015 by Open Arts Foundation and Sariev Contemporary
Focus Bulgaria at viennacontemporary 2015 is the first overview of Bulgarian contemporary art at an international art fair. It consists of a thematic exhibition (curated by Iara Boubnova and Vessela Nozharova), of panel discussions and informal talks (curated by Dessislava Dimova), of historical comments on the context in the country, of quotations and explanations as well as of a publication (conceived by Boris Kostadinov).

Samuil Stoyanov's work at Focus Bulgaria is:

20 Billion Stars, 2012 Action, ceramic stars, photographs, plexiglas The present work "20 Billion Stars" is part of a series of similar boxes and uses as material photo-documentation and artefacts of action (of the same name) held by the artist for 30 days in the summer of 2011.
During the renovation of the central square of his home-town (Dobrich, Bulgaria) Samuil Stoyanov goes regularly to the work-site and casts ceramic stars from red clay in the still wet concrete. Inlaid and built up stars creates a new map of a universe, which, unfortunately, will probably remain undiscovered forever. The square named "Svoboda" (Freedom) has a total area of about 150,000 square meters, which are overlapped entirely. The funding of the reparation of "Freedom" Square is OPRD of the European Union and the action of the artist is made within the project "Art of Urban Intervention", which is supported by the Culture Programme of the European Union.

Como Tizón Quemado, CGAC, Centro Galego de arte contempóranea
Comisario/a: Alberto Carton Artista: Christian García Bello 6 marzo - 14 junio 2015

Como tizón quemado
es una agilización del proceso creativo de Christian García Bello (A Coruña, 1986) hacia la rotundidad contenida del gesto, y hacia la severidad a ultranza de un carácter en evasión concreta y ciertamente radical. Esta evasión es fidelidad hacia uno mismo, hallazgo de lo temporal que tiende y se estratifica hacia lo superior; y es atributo de la individualidad trascendente que, además de la integridad que se le exige, es también producto de la inflexión de la reflexión y su conversión en objet la materialidad tridimensional, no equívoca y, menos aun, derivativa y desinencial, en la cual refugiarse, hallarse,  y refundarse. La complexión no banal de la instalación site-specific establece una unidad lógica con el espacio (vacío, luz y ciertas perspectivas aparentes) que particulariza el medio envolvente, y lo torsiona en una sucesión de tensiones verticales y horizontales reivindicativas de una geometría pura y razonada. Y la utilización de la madera, del grafito, de la cuerda, texturiza esa armazón primaria, insistente y focal, afirmación de lo inviolable del hombre y de su unicidad sustantiva.
