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.

Transcending Narratives of Humanity- Selected works CINTAS Foundation

January 15 – May 31, 2013

Miami Dade College
Freedom Tower
600 Biscayne Blvd,
Miami, FL
 

The MDC Museum of Art + Design (MoAD) presentsTranscending Narratives of Humanity: Selected Works from the CINTAS Foundation Fellows Collection at its National Historic Landmark Freedom Tower. Free and open to the public.

Transcending Narratives of Humanity explores artists who use art as successful vehicles of narrative, presenting works that conjure the darkest corners of the subconscious, magical reconstructions of inanimate objects and mastery of form, while investigating the interrogation of our personal and cultural identity in modern society.

The minimal exhibition features just six works by CINTAS Foundation Fellows Ernesto de la Vega Pujol, Pablo Cano, Mario Petrirena, Juan Nickford, Ernesto Oroza and María Elena González. Curated by MDC MoAD Curatorial Assistant Natalie Pérez, this exhibition reflects the CINTAS Foundation’s vision and multidisciplinary approach to the contemporary artists it supports.
