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.

The exhibition PROHIBIDO (Forbidden) showcases selection of 13 paintings and an oversized travel journal completed from 1992 to 2014 by artist Lydia Rubio, who represents her environment in a naturalistic style reminiscent of the Hudson River School. For four decades, she has painted highly technical oils on panel, using the traditions of the old masters with a systematic conceptual approach; the traditional style transformed through her subversive allegorical and poetic play.

SIGNS, ABSTRACTIONS & METAPHORS AT THE JUAN CARLOS MALDONADO ART COLLECTION

Curated by Ariel Jiménez, this exhibition is where abstract-geometrical and concrete artists such as Lygia Clark and Tomás Maldonado engage in dialogue with those of artists who, while bordering abstraction, or even clearly abstract in nature, such as Julio Alpuy, Martín Blaszko and César Pasternosto, still bestow their works with a metaphorical and/or symbolic dimension that they consider to be essential. It is also an opportunity to discuss concepts that are not always well-comprehended, such as the difference between geometric abstraction and concrete abstraction, or between works that, while geometric, can work in a radically different manner; some with the plastic autonomy sought by the concrete artist, and others integrating a metaphoric dimension that many Latin American artists consider to be fundamental in maintaining the ties that bind them to the history of the continent.

LYDIA AZOUT EXHIBITS “OLD EARTH-NEW EARTH” IN DOT FIFTYONE GALLERY MIAMI

The Colombian artist presents a selection of sculptures that flesh out her vision in accordance with what is currently happening: What happens when a space of clarity becomes a vitiated, expressionless space? Absurdity is negative. Is negativity always the end? Or is it rather a path to make way to the new? This is a personal thought process that has become matter; rather than purely conceptual, “Tierra Vieja / Tierra Nueva” is a risk, a medication, a vulnerability opened to the rebirth of pleasure and freedom.

BENJAMÍN CIEZA HURTADO EXHIBITS “SUBYUGADO” IN VIGIL GONZALES GALLERY

Set in Valle Sagrado de los Incas (Peru), the works are exhibited along with a made-for-the-occasion text written by Rafael Mayu Nolte. Taking its elements from banking, advertising and finance, the show aims to expose the ways in which a generation was manipulated and even suffocated by monetary schemes. Through metonimias and the deliberate invisibility of all identities but the white male, Cieza Hurtado speaks to the middle-class consciense of Lima.

OdA ART GALLERY PRESENTS ITS OdE TO BLACK

To suppress detail and enhance harmony. Let matter arise, the very essence that is born from dispossession. To print of solemnity on the simple. Discover pure sensitivity in form. It is the absence of light. It is background and also figure. This exhibition proposes an ode to works in black color, freeing them from all drama. The representation of each piece is evident through the simplicity in the composition with the predominance of the flat, forceful color. The works are not explained or thought, they are only expressed. From the most subtle to the effective and concrete. Abstractions and geometric shapes, silhouettes, human faces and organisms. Conditionings and prejudices are not relevant. It is a formal and aesthetic choice for each artist, challenging to see beyond this present and uncertain time." expresses Laura San Martín, founder and curator of the Buenos Aires-based gallery.
