(Los Angeles, US) Ibid Gallery presents the debut Los Angeles solo exhibition by Rodrigo Matheus. Named “Soft Spectacle”, the exhibition showcases Matheus’ new collages, which mix anachronistic banker’s notes, land deeds, photographs, and paperwork. The result is an analysis of the economic pie-cutting of the Americas by Europe.
Presenting over sixty thematically linked exhibitions, “Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA” starts this month across various venues in Southern California. The project addresses issues about the relations between Latin American art and Latino heritage and culture in the US, and has a special place for Brazil in its program: at least four exhibitions are solely devoted to the country’s art and culture.
(Buffalo, USA) For artists Kasper Akhøj and Tamar Guimarães (the latter, a six-times PIPA Prize nominee), the kind of history that matters the most is “minor history”— historical footnotes and rumors that are not always cited in official historiography. The interest guides their work in progress “Studies for a Minor History of Trembling Matter”, which premiered in the Albright-Knox Art Gallery last Saturday, February 18th.
