RAUL CORDERO: Die neue bukolisch at Nova Invaliden Galerie, Berlin

29 Apr – 20 Jun 2016

Nova Invaliden Galerie
Schönleinstr. 25
10967 Berlin

Bucolic Paintings

(or… Why not paint landscapes today?)

Raúl Cordero, born in La Habana, Cuba, in 1971 and based in Mexico City, is a multidisciplinary artist, with a background in art and design. His early work was focused on the uses of videoart, installation and photography in relation to how painting establishes a dialog with these new artistic languages. In the last decade, Cordero has approached painting from a post-conceptual position, incorporating two problems, which have always been present in his practice. On the one hand, the question about how we coexist with images, and on the other, the unfolding of visual production strategies’ inclusion into the perverse, arbitrary and contradictory global universe of contemporary art.

Regen Projects and kurimanzutto are pleased to present Distant Star / Estrella Distante an exhibition based on the writings of Chilean born writer Roberto Bolaño (b. 1953 – d. 2003). Bolaño’s writing — lyrical, evocative, transformative, political, and powerful — has been a common passion for many of the artists in this exhibition as well as the organizers. The exhibition is partly homage to the writer, and partly an exploration of the timbre and topicality of his works.

Ariel Orozco at Pinta London 2011

Born in Sancti Spiritus, Cuba, in 1979, currently lives and works in Mexico City.

Known for using the city and its inhabitants as a context of his practice, Ariel Orozco is an artist who produces complex and challenging works of art with virtually nothing. Political and social by nature, his work largely consists of actions and interventions, which he methodically documents.

“I am interested in the public space as an extremely rich and complex zone, a human arena full of meanings and enigmas. More here

Baruj Salinas: colores en el trópico

By Carlos Monsiváis

Diario de Cuba

El ensayista y cronista mexicano examina la obra de un gran pintor cubano.

Como sucede con lo que me entusiasma, cuando me enfrento a la pintura de Baruj Salinas, intento atenerme solamente a mis reacciones “puramente estéticas”. Y quiero eliminar de mis impresiones o juicios los “elementos impuros”… Fracaso de manera invariable. Ante los cuadros que me absorben, siempre combino la respuesta instantánea (el registro corpóreo y anímico del gusto) con las evocaciones literarias y visuales. Ante cada cuadro combino reacciones inmediatas con la evocación de fragmentos de poemas, de nombres de escritores y pintores, de vivencias personales o culturales, de ideas por desarrollar o de ideas por desechar, de obras antagónicas o colindantes, de polémicas íntimas sobre preferencias y rechazos.
