lo-foto-gráfico


Gallery

July 7 - August 30, 2018

 

Where is the boundary between reality and fiction? How do we register it, how do we reflect, how do we remember it? Lo-foto-gráfico is an exhibition curated by Juanita Carrasco who, from her career as a visual artist, lab worker and teacher has brought together the work of 30 Latin American artists of different traditions. The show reflects upon the role of the photographer in the modern day and exemplifies the deep changes that have taken place in the field of photography, in its language as well as its conceptualization, techniques and production processes. Carrasco is interested in the diverse uses of this media as an artistic tool, whether in its documentary aspect or as an expressive resource for the construction of new realities.

Jesús Abad Colorado


Space Project

July 7 - August 30, 2018

 

Jesús Abad Colorado (Medellín, 1967) presents in the Project Space room a selection of photographs taken throughout his 25 years of professional career. Abad has developed a visual language that records the events of violence: the geographical and social transformations that the armed conflict has left behind. His intention has always been to show what nobody else sees; the human aspect of this war, which is reflected in the forced migrations in the jungle, in the inhabitants of forgotten populations and in the people who have returned to their homes to rebuild what no longer exists. His images reflect a hint of hope within a folk that struggles to survive. A society that desperately needs to forgive in order to continue living, which as much as the photographer, is guided by an incessant search for social justice.

José Horacio Martínez

"Río Arríba"


 

Gallery

May 9 - June 30, 2018

 

Martinez's paintings become maps that tell us about the powerful and contradictory relationship of the individual and his or her environment. A tragic relationship in permanent movement where love and death take center stage instead of a painful and rigid relationship where supposedly there is no time to think about a future, where dispossession and resigned acceptance are a constant which leads us to look at ourselves as mute participants of a representation of our condition as fated to have a sad and painful end.

Gabriel SILVA

"Cosmografías"


 

2nd Floor Gallery

Mayo 9 a Junio 30 de 2018

 

The works of multifaceted artist Gabriel Silva reveal universes that emerge from his imagination, recollections, of the remnants of memory, of everything he has lived and experienced. In Cosmografías [Cosmographies], the artist paints a map of dreamlike worlds, in which he recreates atmospheres and spaces with a palette in a wide variety of colors. There are no photographs, there is no specific reference but rather the constant memory of THE DESCRIPTION OF EGYPT, by Piero de la Francesa, by Ucello, science fiction, Neo Rauch, the cinema and traveling painters of the 17th and 19th centuries, among many others, where the landscape is the subject and it is also the excuse.

Dalita NAVARRO

"Viaje al corazón de la arcilla"


 

Space Project

May 9 - June 30, 2018

 

Ceramist Dalita Navarro confesses that she wants to go back to basics, to the most primitive, simple and true of shapes such as that of a bowl, or the forms or vessels that keep her memories. Bowls can hold both sweetness and bitterness, and can quench thirst and give meaning. These cardial pieces, millenary in their memories of centuries, of years, of days, of hours-, always have the shape of the heart, rescued by Dalita’s hands from the depth of feelings, of sorrows and joys; of the subtle engravings of the tender skin of clay and its expressive heart shapes.   From time immemorial, beings with a memory have felt the beats of their hearts and gave them different names over the centuries. The Greeks gave them the name kardia, which in Spanish means heart. This exhibition is about the pains of the earth, of the sky and of the sea; the passions arising from the heart and its essential helpers; the same as the diseases they cause and the clay that expresses them; of hopes and desolations; of the devastations and the joys flowing from that spring. In it the echoes of sad songs like " dónde estás corazón, / no oigo tu palpitar”; “soy enterrador/ y vengo/ de enterrar mi corazón." Or the song of exile, "cuando salí de Cuba/ dejé enterrado mi corazón.”

PINTURA INMORTAL


Gallery

March 7 - April 30, 2018

 

Beginning in the twentieth century, painting became the subject of intense discussions and censorship. However, it was boldly and audaciously able to lay the foundations of what would later become the avant-garde and contemporary art. Painting was even expected to die in middle of the last century to make way for other, more dynamic, languages.

Camilo BOJACÁ

“Tiempo de consumo”   Space Project January 27 – February 27, 2018 The exhibition by Camilo Bojacá (Sogamoso, 1985) in the Projects Room presents a selection of works that explore the concept of predation, understood as a normalized behavior within our culture.   The natural landscape becomes an economic landscape, as a result of the action of mankind, who seeks to usufruct it and consume it. It is almost inevitable that every natural landscape is perceived as a potential economic landscape waiting for the arrival...
