Febrero 4 a Marzo 4 de 2017

 

Lenguajes en Papel. La exposición colectiva cuenta con la participación de más de 60 artistas colombianos, latinoamericanos y españoles, cuya obra devela la versatilidad del papel y las posibilidades infinitas que derivan de su uso, no sólo como soporte o material, sino como un elemento compositivo y discursivo. Si bien las nuevas tecnologías han puesto a disposición de los artistas un amplio repertorio de herramientas técnicas y materiales, el lugar del papel como punto de partida para la creación, como elemento abierto a la inspiración del autor, a la espontaneidad de la idea y a la inmediatez de la ejecución plástica, le ha permitido trascender sus límites de soporte para convertirse en protagonista de la obra de arte y, por lo mismo, en un recurso expresivo dentro de la práctica artística contemporánea.

Fernando García Vásquez’s work is characterized by the use of diverse techniques, such as painting, collage, assemblies, sculpture and installations. His work is committed to the Colombian historical and social reality, using hybridization with an anthropophagic approach through which he interacts and appropriates images extracted from the history of art and places them in the specific reality of hazardous, everyday life in Colombia.

El trabajo de Fernando García Vásquez se caracteriza por la utilización de técnicas análogas y diversas, como la pintura, el collage, los ensamblajes, la escultura y las instalaciones. Su obra está comprometida con la realidad histórica y social colombiana, valiéndose de la hibridación, de cierta actitud antropofágica a través de la cual interactúa y se apropia de imágenes extraídas de la historia del arte, y las sitúa en la realidad específica de la cotidianidad azarosa de vivir y trabajar en Colombia.

Nadín OSPINA

"Del otro mundo" / (Otherworldly)

 

1st Floor Gallery

October 20 - November 18, 2016

 

Nadín Ospina (Bogotá, 1960) presents his latest project, titled Del otro mundo, which focuses on the fantastic and fictional production of the entertainment world: film, television, comics and the inexhaustible universe of pop collectibles. This series brings together many concerns that have been constant in the artist’s previous works: the detection and reaffirmation of cultural mergers and interactions, the allegorical representation of symbolic meetings as a metaphor of contemporary historical events, humor as a tool for reflection and the use of pop culture imagery with the consequent reappearance of fantastic creatures and Pre-Columbian references.

"Prohibidas las metáforas"

 

2nd Floor Gallery

October 20 - November 18, 2016

 

Prohibidas las metáforas brings together a series of large and medium drawings in charcoal on paper. In this exhibition, dislocation, exoticism and intercultural and hybrid identities are explored through the "clichés" of popular and tropical culture. This particular series arises from the inherent tensions in the constant negotiation required to build an identity outside of Colombia. The staging of a forced or voluntary identity is explored through absurd and fantastic compositions and questions about the concept of "Magical Realism" as a cultural and national reference. Different strategies are used in order to subordinate the contradictory in a delicate and imaginative order and question the notions of place and belonging.

"Wüin"

 

2nd Floor Gallery

October 20 - November 18, 2016

 

"Arijuna, why are you taking pictures of these bones?” asked Antonio, my Wayuu guide, who spoke little Spanish and who I’d been traveling with for more than five hours by motorcycle in the deserts of Guajira from Punta Gallinas to Nazareth. “I'm not entirely sure, Antonio,” I replied, "...I guess because if we keep wasting water, we’ll be next after the animals”. The decision to build each of the photographs that make up this report from water was born from the need to educate the audience about the importance of preserving this vital resource, on which we depend directly to exist.

"Abreviaciones Misé en Scène 1994 - 2016"

 

Project Space

October 20 - November 18, 2016

 

Abreviaciones, Mise en Scène, 1995 – 2016, is the first exhibition by artist Mira Bernabeu (Valencia, Spain, 1969) at Galería El Museo. The exhibition includes a selection of photographic works in small format. The artist has selected two to three images from each of the projects from the beginning of her career to date. While each of these projects is intended to be composed of installations, videos, objects and photographs, for this occasion the artist chose to focus solely on her photographic series; a universe that she has meticulously built for over twenty years.
