LOCATION: CAAM Atlantic Center of Modern Art Las Palmas de Gran Canarias/ES
A large group of artists from the Canary Islands participate in this great exhibition project: lldefonso Aguilar, Rubén Acosta, Santiago Morilla and the PSJM team (Pablo San José and Cynthia Viera). They present their creations in different formats and techniques, which coexist in the exhibition consisting of reproductions of emblematic pieces on Manrique, made by Luna Bengoechea, Acaymo Cuesta, Moneiba Lemes and José Otero.
The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue published by CAAM that deals with the most varied aspects of this creator, as multifaceted as he is exceptional.
Universo Manrique is an exhibition produced by CAAM, Cabildo de Gran Canaria, which is part of its commitment to promote exhibitions that investigate and give historical perspective to figures of the current art scene on the Canary Islands.
LOCATION: Teylers Museum, Spaarne 16, 2011 CH Haarlem/NL
Teylers Museum has been supporting ‘living art’ since the end of the eighteenth century by collecting and presenting contemporary works of art. With this in mind, from 1 February to 2 June in the Tuinzaal, the photo “Back Stages, Teylers Museum” of artists Katrin Korfmann (1971) and Jens Pfeifer (1963) can be seen.
The huge picture of more than three by four meters shows an imaginary moment from above in Teylers Museum. Korfmann and Pfeifer made the work as part of the Back Stages series, in which they map all aspects of making and showing art and culture worldwide. From more than five hundred individual photographs of the museum, the artists put together a new solidified reality. Regular visitors to the museum will recognize pieces of Fossil Hall mixed with the Oval Room.
As in a huge tetris game, the artists built from these separate elements a new pattern that symbolizes the social patterns and connections that are necessary to produce art. This never happens in full romantic isolation, but continuously in contacts between artists, collectors, traders, exhibition makers and the public.
