My Highlights from Zona MACO 2015

A question I consider important to constantly rethink is if and how the implications of the artist of the second half of the 20th century live, tense, appear, and disappear within the art created in our days.

Is that tension or distension taking place or is it being diluted in the flow that we call “information”?

The fact of having them here altogether, watching them and knowing them as a significant source intellectually (even if it is in an art fair!) will only be worth it if that link is read in connection with younger voices that are already producing specific paths to continue asking what it means to be an artist in this second decade of the 21st century.

Having said that, here is my selection of works:

Alighiero e Boetti, Untitled, 1988, at CARDI GALLERY

Lucio Fontana, Concetto Spaziale, Attese, 1966, at CARDI GALLERY

Ana Mendieta, Untitled, 1979, at Galleria Raffaella Cortese

Hiroshi Sugimoto, Casa Batillo II - Gaudi, 1998, at Mai 36 Galerie

Marcela Armas, Homo Orbital, 2014, at Arróniz Arte Contemporáneo 

Fritzia Irizar, Sin título (S.I.N.) / Untitled (S.I.N.), 2007, at talcual

Cinthia Marcelle, Capítulo 12 - da série Secession: The Tempest, 2014, at Vermelho
