March 2 – April 8, 2016
Next Wednesday, March 2, Galería El Museo opens its annual program with the seventh edition of the Lenguajes en Papel collective exhibition. This version features the work of more than 50 artists, who proposed paper as an expressive medium in contemporary art practice. This exhibition attempts to give more prominence to the plastic versatility of paper and the endless possibilities brought about by its use.
In this exhibition we wanted to invite different artists from different generations to engage in a dialogue proposing technical and conceptual approaches to paper as a compositional or discursive element. The works in this exhibition are the results of the creative process of each artist, which show the magnitude of paper as a material, medium and support of large works that clearly express the relevance and potential of this medium to recreate different proposals, marked by the uniqueness and personality of their authors, with the codes of contemporary times.
While new technologies have made available a wide range of technical means and materials to artists, paper – in its various forms and combinations – has managed to transcend its quality as a plastic support to become the essential protagonist of the work. That white, flat surface exposes a language that is built from the fragility and lightness to reveal different worlds through the vision of these artists.
This exhibition features the works of Carlos Alarcón, Álvaro Barrios Johan Barrios, Camilo Bojacá, Otoniel Borda, Jorge Cabieses (Peru), Sebastián Camacho, Marcello Castellani, Carla Chaim (Brazil), Adriana Ciudad (Peru), Fredy Clavijo, Mauricio Combariza, María Cristina Cortés, Teresa Currea, Cesar Del Valle y Sebastián Antonio Restrepo, Rafael Díaz, Jansel Figueroa, Gonzalo Fuenmayor, Adrian Gaitán, Diana Gamboa, Jaime Gamboa, Juan José García, Juan Camilo García Walker, Gonzalo García, Lia García, Fernando García Vásquez, Priscila González, Andrés Felipe Guerrero, Diego Hernández, Maite Ibarreche, Carlos Jacanamijoy, Aurora Lario, Miler Lagos, Santiago Leal, Miriam Londoño, Cynthia López, Margaret Mariño, José Horacio Martínez, Catalina Mejía, Diego Mendoza, Marco Mojica, Edwin Monsalve, Eduard Moreno, Aldemar Muñoz, Simón Ortega, Lorena Ortiz, Catalina Ortiz, Juan Osorno, Camilo Parra, Boris Pérez, José Pérez Tello, Mauro Piva, Ronald Prado, Leonardo Ramos, Reyes Santiago Rojas, María Isabel Rueda y Marcos Castro, Carlos Salazar Arenas, Alejandro Sánchez, Sebastián Sandoval, Fredy Saúl Serrano, Andrés Felipe Uribe, Jimmy Villegas, Camilo Villegas, Paula Andrea Yunda and Sergio Zapata.
