MEDELLÍN - FIRST MUSEUM RETROSPECTIVE EXHIBITION OF MARÍA TERESA HINCAPIÉ

The Museum of Modern Art of Medellín (MAMM) exhibits María Teresa Hincapié. Si este fuera un principio de infinito (María Teresa Hincapié. If this were a principle of infinity), the first institutional exhibition dedicated to the practice of Colombian artist María Teresa Hincapié (Armenia, 1954 – Bogotá, 2008). A pioneer in Colombia and Latin America, Hincapié had a very particular definition of the performative discipline that she used to call “training” and which resisted any specific categorization; rather, it oscillated between life, creation in motion and the search for the sacred.

TREMOR: SANDRA RENGIFO EXPLORES THE NOTIONS OF BODY, MATERIALITY AND LABOR AT CASA HOFFMANN

TREMOR collects and revisits the reflections on painting, cinematographic noema and experimental video that Sandra Rengifo started in 2016 with the work Los Lirios del Campo y las Aves del Cielo. It is a kind of "synthetic Neo-romanticism" that gathers the premises of existentialism, the process of the everyday, the revisiting of the past and thinking about the present: carrying bodies, diseased bodies, caring bodies, bodies suffering from inclement weather.

MONTENEGRO ART PROJECTS (MAP) OPENS A NEW SPACE IN BOGOTÁ WITH “SILENT THREADS”

The thread is the element that stars in this exhibition, increasingly relevant in contemporary art. It is silent because of its "designation" as a material for women, reflected in techniques such as weaving, embroidery and sewing. The exhibition highlights these traditional activities and shows how artists from Nigeria, Argentina, Cuba, the United States and Colombia coincide in the use of thread and collage in their works. The exhibition is curated by Los Angeles-based design specialist Liliana Becerra and the MAP team (Ana Lucía Arbeláez, art historian, and Sandra Montenegro, director).

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.
