Puerta Roja returns to Art Taipei, with works by Carlos Cruz-Diez, one of the most influential artists of the 20th and 21st centuries, alongside digital art pioneer Miguel Chevalier, bamboo sculptor Laurent Martin 'Lo', Spanish artists Javier León Pérez and María García-Ibáñez.
This year Puerta Roja returns to Art Taipei, presenting works by an outstanding roaster of Spanish and Latin American artists led by Carlos Cruz-Diez, one of the most influential artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. Carlos Cruz-Diez’ works have become part of the most prominent public collections including, amongst others, the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, MoMA, Tate Modern, Georges Pompidou and The Museum of Modern Art Sydney.
The booth will showcase a new series of mobile bamboo sculptures by Laurent Martin ‘Lo’. His works have been well appreciated in Asia. He was invited to participate in the Bamboo Traces Exhibition at the National Taiwan Craft Research and Development Institute and Taiwan Design Fair at the Wu Yuan Cultural Centre of Tainan. In the Korean International Art Fair (KIAF) held in September this year, Lo’s work was extremely well received, where nine works were acquired by prominent Korean collectors, including a highly regarded private museum, Koo House Museum of Art and Design.
Puerta Roja will also present the works of Miguel Chevalier, who has been selected by MOCA for a special project in conjunction with Art Taipei. As Cruz-Diez forged the way for Op-Art and Kinetic art, Chevalier is recognized as a progenitor of digital and virtual art. Along with numerous solo exhibitions in Europe, Chevalier has had prominent public installation commissions around the world. His work is held in the collections of prominent museums such as Musee d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.
Alongside Cruz-Diez, Chevalier and ‘Lo’ will be two of Puerta Roja’s rising artists, Javier León Pérez and María García-Ibáñez.
