The exhibition examines contemporary abstraction contextualization and re-interpretation in recent artistic practices by re-assessing the critical role of abstraction as an aesthetic idiom, perceptual process and research form. The project considers how its constant re-makings keep abstract art crucial, a strategy to think contemporary culture and to incite ongoing critical dialogues with everyday reality.The exhibition brings together a group of seven artists whose work engage divergent conceptual approaches to abstract art. Working in a variety of media and formats, their art speaks to the renewed potential of the language of geometric abstraction today. The complexity and heterogeneity of their practices continue to generate new emphases and thematics tied to modernist histories, as well as to the constantly shifting conditions of contemporary life.
Participating artists include: Andre Komatsu, Carla Chaim, Daniel Medina, Francisco Ugarte, Gabriel Acevedo Velarde, Jorge Pedro Nunez and Nicolas Robbio.
