Yan Pei-Ming: No Comment
Yan Pei-Ming: No Comment
MALAGA  •  Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Málaga  •  20 March - 14 June 2015
 
Curated by Fernando Francés, No Comment features 27 paintings by the French artist who was born in Shangai. Most of the works are large format and were produced between the beginning of this century and the present day. Yan Pei-Ming is renowned for his use of a limited palette of colours and his portraits of well-known politicians, religious figures and even economists, but he also paints anonymous people who for one reason or another are victims of present-day conflicts. Death and autobiographical details are recurring motifs in his work. In addition to the works on display at CAC Málaga, one of the paintings from the exhibition is showing at Málaga Cathedral, which will be the first time that this religious space has ever been used as a venue for art. The first artist of Chinese origin to show in the Louvre. He lives and works in Dijon, France.

19th FotoPres ”la Caixa”. New Documentary Image
MADRID  •  CaixaForum Madrid  •  13 February - 7 June 2015
 
 

The projects, on view here for the first time, address different aspects of contemporary society ?territory, peripheries, identity, violence, frontiers? using formats that go beyond the traditional image to embrace video, documentation, installation and interaction with the social networks.

The ten projects were produced thanks to support from the nineteenth edition of the competition. Moreover, in pursuit of the organisation’s commitment to the image and its role in the contemporary world, ”la Caixa” Foundation teamed up with the Magnum Photos agencies, whose photographers acted as mentors for the artists selected. Besides providing support for the artists, FotoPres ”la Caixa” also shows the results in this exhibition and promotes the publication of a book in which all the photographers were given complete freedom in designing their contributions. The artists selected are: Arnau Blanch, Rebecka Bíró and Victoria Montero, Jon Cazenave, the group formed by Borja Larrondo, Pablo López-Learte and Diego Sánchez, El Cíclope Mecánico, Gerardo Custance, Mattia Insolera, Sebastián Liste, David Mocha and the NOPHOTO group.

Osvaldo Lamborghini; Teatro proletario de cámara

Osvaldo Lamborghini; Teatro proletario de cámara
BARCELONA  •  Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona  •  30 January - 1 June 2015
 
 

Teatro proletario de cámara (Proletarian Chamber Theatre) brings to the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona the most comprehensive compilation of the visual work of Osvaldo Lamborghini (Buenos Aires, 1940 – Barcelona, 1985). The exhibition offers an insight into the sharp radicality of an artist still uncharted by the aesthetic accounts of the eighties. Osvaldo Lamborghini is one of the great figures of contemporary Argentine literature. With only three books published in his lifetime – El fiord (1969), Sebregondi retrocede (1973) and Poemas (1980) – alongside Novelas y cuentos (1988) and Tadeys (incomplete, 1994), which appeared posthumously, his legend has continued to grow, making him a true cult figure for several generations of Latin American and European writers. His work anticipates the contemporary graphic novel, the self-published fanzine, the aesthetics of comics and expanded literature, to mention some traditional book overflows. However, the exhibition at MACBA focuses on an as yet unexplored aspect of Lamborghini’s career: his vast visual production, made while living in Barcelona between 1981 and 1985, of so far unpublished photographic collages, which had been kept in the archive of the writer and poet since his death.

Accompanying the exhibition is a catalogue entitled El sexo que habla, including five essays written especially for the publication by novelists César Aira and Alan Pauls, philosopher Paul Beatriz Preciado, literary critic Antonio Jiménez Morato, and essayist and curator of the exhibition, Valentín Roma. The publication also features nearly two hundred illustrations documenting the variety of subjects, media and techniques in Lamborghini’s visual oeuvre.
