Maria Elena González: “Grand Prize Solo” exhibition at the 31st Ljubljana Biennial, Slovenia

Aug. 28 – Nov. 1, 2015

Opening Reception: Aug. 28, 2015

 

Cankarjev dom
1000 Ljubljana, Slovenia

Maria Elena González’s “Tree Talk” series received the Grand Prize during the 30th Ljubljana Biennale. For this exhibition, she will present new work in such series and have the world premier of “Skowhegan Birch #2.” A sculpture/music composition where she translated the bark patterns into a roll for a player piano by having them digitally cut in, to see what kind of sounds would result. When played, the scroll has an unexpected “score”: the phrasing, polyphony, and rhythm seem deliberately composed and modern. This project allows us to hear the “music” of the birch tree, and reminds us of the inherent logic that exists in all of nature’s patterns.

Carlos Estévez: Plenilunio at Enlace – Arte contemporáneo, Lima, Perú

June 16 – July 31, 2015

Galería Enlace Arte Contemporáneo
Av. Camino Real 1123 San Isidro, Lima 27 – Perú 

Galeria Enlace Arte Contemporaneo and Carlos Estevez are pleased to announce their upcoming exhibition, Plenilunio. The show’s title refers to the full moon as a symbol of illumination. The moon not only brings about an essential cycle in our existence, but it also illuminates the deep corners of our minds. Through sixteen canvasses and four drawings, Carlos Estevez hopes to share his illuminated vision of life, particularly of a recent and prolific period in his career.

The works examine various themes such as spiritual journeys, the search for success, family ties, among others. These themes are explored through visual representations that mix symbols from music, animal morphology, and a series of lines which seamlessly bring together the figures or sometimes expand them.

Luis Gispert, Aqua Regia, at OHWOW Gallery, Los Angeles, CA

May 29 – Jun 27, 2015

Opening reception
Friday, May 29
7-9pm

OHWOW Gallery
937 N. La Cienega Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90069

OHWOW Gallery is pleased to announce Aqua Regia, Luis Gispert’s second solo exhibition at the gallery, presenting a series of two-dimensional works, each comprised of quasi-asphalt slabs embedded with varied strands of gold chain. Concepts surrounding American culture and the fetishization of value have inspired the artist’s work over the years, and those interests continue to serve as the basis from which all his ideas evolve. Regardless of the visual vehicle used to interpret his acumen, Gispert’s sensibility is always palpable.

The work presented in Aqua Regia translates through visual and tactile methods. Densely black planks appear interrupted by channels of delicately metallic line in a nonobjective abstract manner. Arriving at a closer proximity, these works of expressionistic gesture disclose to the viewer: they confess not to be minimalist paintings, as Gispert’s panels reveal a particular style of line. Each piece serves as a sample of analysis, identifying marks associated directly to this artist’s hand.

Opening March 13

Kadel Willborn
Birkenstrasse 3

Laura Lamiel, Björn Braun, Jürgen Drescher, Diango Hernández, Vajiko Chachkhiani

“Opaque Waters is the title of an installation mainly composed by two objects, both of a familiar nature to us all. At your left hand -if you are standing in front of the gallery wall in which they hang from- there is a stretched fragment of a 1940’s table cloth that has been mounted on a heavy plexiglass, with same measurements, both the table cloth and the plexiglass, give you the impression that ‘something’ is hidden between them. The other object is a Hi-Fi sound amp that hangs from the wall as a picture frame does. In this case the amp is disconnected from the power so it is in silence, its only function is to be the support of a printed image, a digitally generated map of all Atlantic retired hurricanes.” Diango Hernández

Teresita Fernández at Almine Rech Gallery, London

November 4- December 20, 2014

Almine Rech Gallery
11 Savile Row, 1st floor,
Mayfair, W1S3PG London

From Artdaily.org

LONDON.- Inspired by the landscape and natural phenomena as well as diverse historical and cultural references, Fernández presents a group of new works for her second exhibition with Almine Rech Gallery that collectively demonstrate her remarkable ability to transform materials into unique perceptual experiences.

This is the artist’s first solo exhibition in London. Fernández’s new Golden paintings, made with India ink on reflective metallic panels, continue the artist’s inquiries into materiality, landscape painting, mining, the connections between the cosmos and the subterranean, and the cultural significance of gold.

The thick, visceral layer of ink marks on top of the mirror-like surface explores painterly conventions of figure-in-the-landscape by superimposing the viewer’s own distorted reflection into the image. Shifting reflections animate the landscape scenes into almost gestural, real-time cinematic dissolves where the viewer becomes engaged in the immersive, experiential quality the work.

Fernández’s intense research and investigation into the materiality of gold and the convention of landscape can also be seen in her large-scale exhibition of sculptures and installations titled As Above So Below, on view at Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, North Adams, Massachusetts through March 2015.

Angel Delgado: Uncomfortable Landscapes, at B&B Art Exchange, Santa Monica, CA

Opening Reception: Saturday October 11th, 6-9 pm

Curated by Marisa Caichiolo

Co-curated by Evelyn Pener

B&B Art Exchange
Bergamot Station Arts Center
2525 Michigan Ave., Unit F2
Santa Monica, CA 90404

 

“In his new series of paintings titled “Uncomfortable Landscapes” cuban artist Angel Delgado explores a theme constantly present throughout his work: the human condition and its relationship to the notions of freedom and identity. In this occasion, Delgado presents a series of paintings that far from the traditional idea of landscape, they constitute a view, indeed, but of rather a social panorama of what one would call modern societies. By juxtaposing everyday objects, aerial views of prisons and human silhouettes, the artist creates a composition that evokes a state of alienation. The individual seems utterly reduced to a series of social codes, to which he is, nevertheless, inextricably bonded.” (Patricia Ortega Miranda)

Armando Mariño in group show: GIANTS AMONG US, at CHG CIRCA, Culver City, CA

September 20 – October 4, 2014

Opening Reception:

Saturday, September 20,from 7-10PM

 

CHG CIRCA
8530-A Washington Boulevard
Culver City, CA 90232

Culver City (September 15, 2014): On Saturday, September 20, CHG Circa presents “Giants Among Us” a group show examining the role of the Giant in contemporary times. Modern day Giants prove to be more psychologi- cal than tangible in most cases, except perhaps when disguised as championship basketball centers or infamous wrestlers. Yet, since the very beginning of story-telling, giants have recurred as personalities to fear and respect, making mere humans feel small in their shadow, or humongous when the monster is overcome in battle. You’ll see today’s Giant depicted as fantasy, as emotion, even as edible.

Impact and Legacy: CINTAS exhibit in Miami celebrates the art of exile

Through July 12, 2014

MDC Museum of Art + Design,
Freedom Tower at Miami Dade College,
600 Biscayne Blvd., Miami

Impact and Legacy, the CINTAS Foundation’s 50th-anniversary exhibition celebrating the work of Cuban artists in exile, is a clear validation of the foundation’s success. The sweeping exhibition features the work of CINTAS fellows and honors the foundation’s benefactor, Oscar B. Cintas, a Cuban industrialist, arts patron and U.S. ambassador, who died in 1957. His estate funds annual visual arts fellowships for artists of Cuban heritage living outside the island and gives awards, too, in music composition, architecture and creative writing.

Among them is Anthony Goicolea, whose work is included in this year’s show.

Alejandro Aguilera: PATTERNS OF PROTEST, at Saltworks Contemporary Art, Atlanta, Georgia

June 27 – July 26, 2014

Opening reception, Friday, June 27, 7-10PM

SALTWORKS Contemporary Art
1100 Howell Mill Rd NW
Atlanta, GA 30318

Consisting of works created over the last two years, Patterns of Protest started in 2008 during the time of the global economic crisis. Aguilera began channelling the daily news events and depictions of large groups protesting into his drawings and studio practice. In these works, Aguilera embodies the mind of the journalist, painting cinematic scenes of the unfolding spectacle. The public arena is a place of improvisation, where the individual morphs into a potent force for change.

The Miami Generation: Revisited, at NSU Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, Florida

July 13 – September 21, 2014

Nova Southeastern University’s Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale
One East Las Olas Blvd.
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301

In 1983, Miami’s former Cuban Museum of Arts and Culture presented the groundbreaking exhibition The Miami Generation, which represented a pivotal moment in South Florida’s cultural history and brought together for the first time nine emerging artists from Miami’s Cuban exile community who were part of a first generation that received its artistic education in the United States. Now, more than 30 years later, NSU Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale picks up where this exhibition left off, with The Miami Generation:Revisited, a new exhibition featuring works created since 1983 by the original nine artists: Mario Bencomo, María Brito, Humberto Calzada, Pablo Cano, Emilio Falero, Fernando García, Juan González, Carlos Maciá, and César Trasobares. Works on view address the issues of exclusion, inclusion, and sexual identity politics that those in the original show explored, as well as demonstrate the variety of materials the artists use and how their styles and interests have evolved. The exhibition also reveals how each artist has synthesized the dynamics of native and adopted cultural forces to convey their feelings, dreams, and aspirations. These artists were part of a thriving art community in the early 1980s that contributed to the emergence of South Florida as a hub for international art and culture. The exhibition also highlights NSU Museum of Art’s strong commitment to Latin American Art, which includes a large collection of work by Cuban artists and the Stanley and Pearl Goodman Latin American Art Research Center which will launch in 2015.

AFTER THE EMBRACE, intaglio prints by Cuban Master Printer Agustín Rolando Rojas at UNPACK STUDIO, Toronto, Canada

June 6 – July 9, 2014

Opening & Artist Talk: Friday June 6th, 7 pm to 9 pm.

UNPACK STUDIO
11 Willison Square
Toronto, Ontario M5T 1E8

The exhibition will be paired with a catalogue with essays written by curator Maria Elena Soto and artist Eugenio D’Melon.

Agustín Rolando Rojas is a mid-career artist who lives and works in Toronto, Canada. Rojas earned a BFA from San Alejandro Fine Art School (1978) and graduated from the prestigious Instituto Superior de Artes (ISA 1983) in Havana with a degree in Printmaking.

Questioning the stereotype of printmakers as solely followers of traditions and procedures, Agustín masters technique to the point of contradicting it. In his series of drypoints (drypoints without inhibition), he attacks the plates, then erases the marks and re-works the matrixes as if they were pieces of paper. Technically, his artwork operates as a continuous exercise of questioning beliefs about printmaking. Conceptually, it is a direct result of his diasporic experience as a migrant. His work explores the idea of loss and separation, reunion and hope as a permanent condition of displacement and adaptation.

Angel Delgado, “Constancy”, at Amanda Harris Gallery of Contemporary Art, Las Vegas

Opening Reception and Documentary Screening: Saturday, June 14, 6:00 p.m. -8:00 p.m.

Amanda Harris Gallery of Contemporary Art,
900 S. Las Vegas Blvd. #150,
Las Vegas, NV 89101.

Las Vegas based artist Angel Delgado will present a new series of painting, drawings and installations in a solo exhibition titled “Constancy”. The work of Delgado is largely based on the limitations, restrictions, prohibitions and controls that you are constantly imposed on human beings in society. Through keen observation of the everyday and the ordinary, Delgado is trying to transform those objects or situations that are the daily step in photographs, drawings, videos, paintings, installations and performance, with a poetic that makes us reflect on our lives, about social processes or on the same processes of artistic creation.

Delgado has shown his work internationally for over 15 years, including solo shows in Havana, Madrid, Mexico City, Puerto Vallarta, Istanbul, New Orleans, Los Angeles and Pittsburgh.

Teresita Fernández: As Above So Below at MASS MoCA, Massachusetts

On view beginning May 24, 2014

MASSACHUSETTS MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART
1040 MASS MoCA WAY    
NORTH ADAMS, MA 01247

Demonstrating the artist’s remarkable ability to transform materials and their surrounding architecture into an enveloping perceptual experience, Teresita Fernández: As Above So Below combines graphite and gold to create a series of immersive, interconnected installations whose scale shifts from intimate to vast, from miniature to panoramic. Fernández’s largest solo exhibition to date, As Above So Below is made up entirely of new works.

Describing a universe in balance, the phrase “as above, so below” originates from the ancient Hermetic tradition central to alchemy, in which every action occurring on one level of reality (physical, emotional, or mental) correlates to every other. Responding to MASS MoCA’s massive and light-filled first-floor galleries, Fernández’s trio of new landscape-informed, large-scale installations embodies this expression, and is united through the show’s elaborately detailed exploration of two essential minerals.

Hernan Bas at Victoria Miro, London

26 April – 31 May 2014

Victoria Miro Gallery II
16 Wharf Road, London N1 7RW

The American artist Hernan Bas has built an international reputation over the last decade for paintings that merge still life, portraiture and landscape within a deeply romantic sensibility. His work portrays an overt theatricality, offering a queering of historical genres, and is populated by beautiful objects and alluring boys—Bas never depicts women. His canvases are dense with incidence and intrigue, and can be aligned to artists such as Neo Rauch and Daniel Richter who similarly applied a flamboyant narrativity to figuration. If Rauch and Richter feel a little heavy metal, then Bas’ approach can be situated more on the dance floor. The paintings are exalted; at once psychedelic and narcotic. Victoria Miro presents a new series of paintings and works on paper across two venues, which are brought together under the single title “Memphis Living.” Lifted from the post-modern Italian design collective Memphis Group, the title articulates Bas’ interest in the historical impetus of design and decoration. The group was noted in the ’80s for their elision of applied arts with a formal eclecticism, and Bas’ new paintings are packed with references to the group’s work. This playfulness and historical layering brings new energy to an old technique. The exhibition, the artist’s fourth with the gallery, coincides with the most comprehensive monograph on the artist to date, published by Rizzoli. (George Vasey)

Andrés Serrano in group show CRIME IN ART, at Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow, Poland

5.15.2014 – 09.28.2014

Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow (MOCAK)
ul. Lipowa 4, Krakow, Poland         

Crime in Art is the 4th exhibition to date in MOCAK’s series which combines art with the most significant civilisational themes such as history, sport, science and religion. To date, three exhibitions have taken place: History in Art, Sport in Art and Economics in Art. The series aims to present these – seemingly non-equivocal – concepts and demonstrate how many creative inspirations and how much symbolic potential there lurks in the everyday reality.

Crime reveals all the inner fanatical turmoil, bleak helplessness and wrong without atonement. Crime has two sources. It stems either from ‘lesser’ crimes that often go unpunished, because they have been committed in the privacy of the home on the weak and defenceless, who go on to seek revenge on society at large. Or else, crime is instigated by politics and religion. Crime reveals the abundance of evil inside us. It is the ultimate lesson in human vulnerability and cultural turmoil.
