DE SALTOS Y TROPIEZOS – LUIS ROLDÁN AND BERNARDO ORTÍZ EXHIBIT AT CASAS RIEGNER

Bringing together recent works by Bernardo Ortiz and Luis Roldan, the exhibition De saltos y tropiezos (Of Jumps and Stumbles) is the result of a year-long intellectual exchange between the artists. Thanks to their affinity for painting, their similar artistic pursuits and a longtime friendship, Ortíz and Roldán engage in an artistic dialogue marked by issues of confinement and the impossibility of leading a life free from temporal and spatial restrictions.

IN REAL TIME. THE RAFAEL TOUS COLLECTION OF CONCEPTUAL ART

The Rafael Tous Collection, donated to MACBA (Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona) just one year ago, is the portrait of a moment and specific artistic practices. A passionate collector linked to the textile world, Rafael Tous opted for conceptual art as a set of plural practices that prioritized the idea and the process over the object. Without speculative intention and in an intuitive way, Tous set up a collection that brings together the attitudes and experimental works of a group of artists with whom, in many cases, he established bonds of friendship, in addition to accompanying them in their artistic growth. Exhibition curated by: Antònia Maria Perelló, curator and head of the MACBA Collection, and Claudia Segura, curator of exhibitions and Collection.

PAZ ERRÁZURIZ: THE GREATNESS OF THE MARGIN

Probably anyone who is interested in the visual arts within the Latin American scene will be familiar with the work of the Chilean artist Paz Errázuriz. Her impressive work is characterized, above all, in working, through photography, themes linked to oblivion, marginality and exclusion, showing a particular interest in portraying those people that society, for various reasons, has left aside. This year, Errázuriz took a privileged spot at the 22nd Paiz Perdidos Art Biennial Perdidos. en Medio. Juntos. (Lost. In Between. Together) and she presents during the months of May and June a solo exhibition entitled La grandeza del margen (The Greatness of the Margin). From this exhibition, I find especially notable the Trans Guatemala (2020) and Sepur Zarco (2020) series, two unpublished series where problems of great contingency are evident.
