OPEN CALL - SEND YOUR ARTWORK INTO OUTER SPACE

As humanity expands into the solar system, so will art. Moon Gallery proposes to send a collection of ideas into space for future generations to hold onto. Each idea has a big role to serve as a seed of a new culture, but they are small enough to fit into one-cubic-centimeter space travel casing. This is a symbolic gesture, offering an opportunity to discuss what art and culture mean to us at the beginning of the multi-planetary epoch of humanity, and presenting a remote cache of artifacts for future humans to discover and enjoy. Application deadline: August 8th, 2021.

REGINA SILVEIRA: “I ALWAYS UNDERSTOOD THAT EACH REPRESENTATION OF THE REAL IS PURE ARTIFICE, CODED AND CULTURALIZED”

The Brazilian artist Regina Silveira has a long career in which she tries to explore different notions of reality through her work with lights, shadows and distortions. In her five decades of artistic work, she has dealt with themes and explored media that tie in with her idea. "I choose the medium that best solves my intentions, and then I look for the skills and technical resources to make the work feasible, focusing on being a non-specialist in any medium." The artist exhibited in Europe and the American continent, much of her work is in public collections such as the Reina Sofía museum.

SPECIAL DEFECTS - FERNANDO UHÍA IN NUEVEOCHENTA GALLERY

It is inevitable to mention the history of painting when we refer to the work of Fernando Uhía, since it seems in the first instance to allude to the theories of color, the purism of the medium and the ruptures of the mimetic representation that occurred during the emergence of the artistic avant-gardes in the first decades of the 20th century. However, Special Defects departs from such assumptions and invites the viewer to an aesthetic experience of color through a unique treatment of paint. The above, from a global language that is expressed through the construction of shapes and colors, which today are not only present in fine arts but also in design and advertising. " Luciana Rizo introduces in the curatorial text.
