La importación de talentos fue exitosa en dosis triple con la iniciativa de Alexis Figueroa y su proyecto Trailer Park Proyects, quien en colaboración con Galería Roberto Paradise, presentaron el pasado jueves, 27 de septiembre de 2012 tres aperturas simultáneas: “Purple Buff” de Summer Wheat, “King’s Park” de Melissa Brown, y el solo show del primer artista residente de Trailer Park Proyects de Tim Bergstrom.[...]
This past August 9th as part of its monthly activities Trailer Park Proyects opened two new individual exhibitions: “Conglomeraciones Cínicas” by Ivan Girona and “Messengers” by Maja Ruznic. Both exhibitions were presented in individual trailers so as to provide each artist an individual and separate space.[...]
Nayda Collazo-Llorens, REVERB, Installation View.
Medios y Ambientes includes the work of eight artists who use and expand notions of space to challenge the preconceived limits of objects and artistic mediums. Working in diverse techniques and media such as painting, photography, mixed media sculpture, video, architecture and installation, the work proposes the spectator relationship as a central theme by creating diverse environments of total immersion.[...]
“The body can be compared to a work of art.”
Guillermo Álvarez Charvel uses a simple folding of a sheet of paper as a fundamental creative act for the composition of objects from books and documents of encyclopedic knowledge inherited from scientific rationalism and positivism which surfaced during modernity. He composes a work by a process of transfiguration that changes the form of perception, from the two-dimensional flat format of a publication on paper, to a new form with volume. The drawing gives the invisible visible existence, reveals a world resting on experience – in this case, the experience of the perceptible body in the senses through the sensations.[...]
Puerto Rican Artist Christto Sanz who currently resides in Doha, Qatar has realized his first exhibition in the Middle East. In collaboration with the South African artist Andrew Jay Weir they have developed a project that concludes with the principle idea of an extended identity. With a touch of irony and humor they present different personalities with different elements that demonstrate a shared identity between the “East” and the “West”. [...]
Rafael Miranda, participative action.
“The future is there,” Cayce hears herself say, “looking back at us. Trying to make sense of the fiction we will have become. And from where they are, the past behind us will look nothing at all like the past we imagine behind us now.”
William Gibson, Pattern Recognition
If we are today merely fiction, then, the narrative of life begins to unfold in the interstices of time, space and distance. Science fiction, or perhaps we should consider it just fiction, attempts to collapse the temporal space between the present and the future. [...]
Duplicitous Storytellers is an exhibition whose point of departure posits rewriting as a conceptual strategy. A repositioning of the notion of the author— the product long-standing research on the construction of genre and figures, as well as historical and artistic movements—resounds in a dialogue among exhibition pieces.[...]
Five special projects featuring Puerto Rican artists are currently on view at the Museo de Arte de Ponce. Curated by Arlette de la Serna, Cuerpo Presente presents visually engaging approaches to the body that are not only corporeal approximations, but also expand to critical interpretations of politics, culture and spirituality. The exhibition features works by Adal Maldonado, Elsa María Meléndez, Norah Hernández and Jaime and Javier Suárez.
Form Follows Function was the title of the joint exhibition of New York-based Puerto Rican artists Christopher Rivera and Hector Arce-Espasas at METRO. The works on view seemingly elude the basic premise of the phrase, identified with 20th century industrial design, architecture and Modernism, where most function seemingly defies and revolts from any real and present form. Form is then instinctive but controlled, where meaning is transgressed through process, resignification and the reconciliation of binary opposites. As many contemporary artists, both Rivera and Arce-Espasas create fictionalized realities, where form is not only an aesthetic choice but also a conceptual one.[...]
