Relevant Notes at Cara Gallery, NY Christo & Jeanne – Claude, Gianni Pettena, Bruna Esposito, Andres Jaque, Diango Hernández, Igor Eskinja, Jason Middelbrook , Franklin Evans, Federico Luger, Matteo Berra, Ebtisam Abdulaziz

June 23 – July 30, 2016 Opening Reception Thursday June 23, 6 – 8 PM   ara Gallery is pleased to present Relevant Notes, a collective exhibition that presents a dialogue between the work of 11 artists to explore the boundaries of disciplines among installation art, land art and architecture. Exhibiting in a wide variety of medias including installation, drawing, photography, painting and sculpture – each created over the past five decades – act as relevant notes to the testimony of the artists’ interpretation of the concept of human intervention. Studying their sustainability in the natural environment, these artists take the location and materials of their work into careful consideration using cultural, political and environmental histories to create art as a catalyst for change. Through their respective practices, the exhibiting artists have been analyzing the unification of materials, space and nature to address the importance of interference. If the balance between these elements were to be lost the intervention of the artist would be lost as well. The visual and conceptual investigations into the conjunction of these elements transform the architectural space of the gallery into an exhibition space where the artist is evident and a vision is perceived. Relevant Notes, as an exhibition, comments on the temporary nature of spatial structures and the constant flux of our environment. Physical and mental aspects of art making come through in order to express the importance of creating a history for a place and acknowledging the presence of the artist. With the constantly shifting nature of time and knowledge our focus is easily destabilized, causing us to forget what we have experienced in the past. The temporary aspect of these works, allow them to live in a location if only for a moment before they are moved or destroyed by the hand of man.

Uragani disegnati nel vuoto. Diango Hernández a Milano. Andrea Lacarpia per Artribune FL Gallery, Milano – fino all’11 marzo 2016. L'artista cubano Diango Hernández racconta la forza della natura attraverso semplici linee spaziali, modificando la percezione dell’ambiente.

La percezione dello spazio è incisivamente alterata, in una dimensione sospesa tra la violenza delle linee, che sembrano disegnate nello spazio, e l’atmosfera ipnotica che invita alla quieta contemplazione della forza della ...

De cómo el proceso educacional cubano ha estado marcado fundamentalmente por la manipulación ideológica de la masa estudiantil, o sea: por la formación de “el hombre nuevo”, ese atrofiado concepto que puso en uso Ernesto Ché Guevara, va la inteligente obra Diamonds & Stones: My Education, de Diango Hernández; que acaba de exhibir en calidad de primicia en su galería habitual en Milán, la Federico Luger Gallery (Febrero-Abril, ...
