Emilio Pérez in group show “Nature Pops!”, at Wave Hill, Bronx, NY

July 12 – September 5, 2016

Exhibition Reception: Sunday, July 17, 2‒4:30 PM

Wave Hill
West 249th Street and Independence Avenue (Front Gate)  
Bronx, NY 10471-2899

A half-century after the emergence of Pop art as a revolutionary response to new norms of consumerism, Nature Pops!, Wave Hill’s summer 2016 exhibition, brings together work by artists who calibrate this movement in contemporary terms. Continuing to re-evaluate popular culture, particularly the increasing mediation of our experience by technology, artists question whether we can still have an authentic experience―even in the natural world. Interpreting nature and the environment through a populist lens, Nature Pops! includes recent work that is especially relevant in an age of digital overload and environmental crisis. Presenting the show at Wave Hill, a stunning garden and cultural center located in the Riverdale section of the Bronx, adds particular depth and dimension to the discussion.

Félix González-Torres in Milano

May 20 —July 20, 2016

Massimo De Carlo gallery
Via Giovanni Ventura 5
20134 Milano – Italy

This exhibition will be the first solo presentation of the artist’s work in Milan since an exhibition at Massimo De Carlo in 1991.

“The failure of conceptual art is actually its success. Because we, in the next generation, took those strategies and didn’t worry if it looked like art or not, that was their business…So I do believe in looking back and going through school reading books. You learn from these people. Then, hopefully, you try to make it, not better (because you can’t make it better), but you make it in a way that makes sense. Like the Don Quixote of Pierre Menard by Borges; it’s exactly the same thing but it’s better because it’s right now. It was written with a history of now…”

Felix Gonzalez Torres, interview with Robert Storr, ArtPress, 1995

Diango Hernández: THEORETICAL BEACH, at Museum Morsbroich, Germany

May 22–August 28, 2016

Museum Morsbroich, Leverkusen
Gustav-Heinemann-Strasse 80
D-51377 Leverkusen. Germany

Curated by Stefanie Kreuzer

From artealdia.com

Museum Morsbroich presents Theoretical Beach. The title stands for the transition from sea to land. With simple materials and agile gestures, Diango Hernandez transforms the whole castle into an open processual space that enables visitors to make the transition between sea and beach and sense the tension between the different elements.

The exhibition addresses precisely that point where, in the metaphor of the sea, the “movement of being” meets “solid ground,” in other words, the place “where man establishes his institutions” (Hans Blumenberg). The place where the categories and value of being which shape and determine the cultural, social and political system become manifest.

Walkthrough
May 13, 2016   8-10 PM

Farside Gallery
1305 SW 87th Avenue
Miami, FL 33174

Curated by Angela Valella

At the heart of the exhibition Like it or Not, is Arturo E. Mosquera’s fascination with the city, the local social, the art collection and the cultural scene that he has been surrounded since his early years.
A significant body of work conceived and produced at different intervals of the artist’s life will be on display; while they vary in medium and technique, these pieces share traces of the powerful repertoire with which the artist constructs his system of ideas and images.

Constructivist Dialogues in the Cuban Vanguard: Amelia Peláez, Loló Soldevilla & Zilia Sánchez, at Galerie Lelong, NY

April 28, 2016 – June 25, 2016

Opening reception: Thursday, May 5 6-8p

Galerie Lelong
528 West 26th Street
New York, NY 10001

Galerie Lelong is pleased to present Constructivist Dialogues in the Cuban Vanguard: Amelia Peláez, Loló Soldevilla & Zilia Sánchez, a group exhibition of three Cuban painters engaged in geometric and constructivist practices from the 1930s to the present. While all three painters enjoyed the support of the Lyceum women’s club gallery, a women’s social and intellectual institution in Havana, their connections go beyond gender. The exhibition reveals shared interests in architecture and space, as well as pattern and color, demonstrating geometric abstraction’s long history in Cuba. Zilia Sánchez will be present for the opening reception on Thursday, May 5 from 6-8pm.

RAUL CORDERO: Die neue bukolisch at Nova Invaliden Galerie, Berlin

29 Apr – 20 Jun 2016

Nova Invaliden Galerie
Schönleinstr. 25
10967 Berlin

Bucolic Paintings

(or… Why not paint landscapes today?)

Raúl Cordero, born in La Habana, Cuba, in 1971 and based in Mexico City, is a multidisciplinary artist, with a background in art and design. His early work was focused on the uses of videoart, installation and photography in relation to how painting establishes a dialog with these new artistic languages. In the last decade, Cordero has approached painting from a post-conceptual position, incorporating two problems, which have always been present in his practice. On the one hand, the question about how we coexist with images, and on the other, the unfolding of visual production strategies’ inclusion into the perverse, arbitrary and contradictory global universe of contemporary art.
