Oriol Vilapuig in Xestos, Formas e Actos. Nordés Gallery, Santiago de Compostela

A project curated by Ángel Calvo Ulloa
With the artists: Alejandra Pombo Su
Diego Vites
Mariana Caló and Francisco Queimadela
Oriol Vilapuig

Diego Vites, Alejandra Pombo Su, Oriol Vilapuig, Mariana Caló and Francisco Queimadela participate in this exhibition that does not want to vindicate past times, but to show with four well differentiated cases other ways of handling and quoting in a critical way the sources of the history of art. The exhibition is thus configured on the basis of a series of punctual or long-term works, which have in the forms attributed to the Romanesque an analytical, renewed starting point that flees from the atrophy that today is the fact of having turned the gestures of the avant-garde into ankylosing regionalist traditionalisms.

It can be visited until December 16 at Nordés Gallery, Santiago de Compostela.

Diogo Pimentão in Linear Transitions, Transient Bodies at The Drawing House, Paris

As an echo to the France-Portugal 2022 season, the Drawing House  hosts in its exhibition space the Drawing Hall, a solo exhibition by the artist Diogo Pimentão. The exhibition is supported by the Camões Cultural Center in Paris.
For Diogo Pimentão, working in a space inside a hotel was an opportunity to reflect on his relationship with such an unusual space, domestic and public at the same time. He rarely stays in a hotel for vacation, but rather for work purposes. But then, can the hotel become the extension of the artist’s mental space? The possibility of (re)thinking his work?

The exhibition will be on view until January 15, 2023 at  The Drawing House in Paris.

Miguel Trillo in Views and Glances (1980-2020), Photographic Encounters of Gijón, Barjola Museum

Like the nineteenth-century photo albums that showed the European bourgeoisie what the inhabitants of foreign countries were like, Miguel Trillo has formed a corpus of images that for the last four decades has collected what the young people of all kinds of urban tribes in Madrid, New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Seoul and Kuala Lumpur are like. An entomologist who has been collecting weirdos since he started going to concerts in the Spanish capital in the mid-seventies, with the Movida on the verge of exploding. Trillo, 69, born in Jimena de la Frontera (Cádiz), receives this weekend a tribute in the 19th edition of the Photographic Encounters of Gijón.

The exhibition can be visited from November 25 to December 31, 2022 at the Barjola Museum in Gijon.

Colita in Carmen Amaya 1963. Taranta, August, mourning and absence, El Palacio de Festivales de Cantabria, Santander.

Isabel Steva Hernández, better known as Colita, is one of the most important Spanish photographers of the 20th century. With her camera she has immortalized the Barcelona of the 1960s and 1970s, the world of flamenco and the most important people, both artists and intellectuals, of this period in the history of Spain. A fervent defender of freedom and feminism, Colita collaborated in various publications of the time and was part of the famous Gauche Divine movement.

In 1962 she collaborated in Francesc Rovira-Beleta’s film ‘Los Tarantos’. During the filming she met the bailaora Carmen Amaya, known by the nickname of “La Capitana”, with whom she would form a deep friendship. Thanks to Amaya, Colita became passionate about flamenco, to the point that the young woman left Barcelona to move to Madrid where she would take the promotional photographs of two great representatives of this art: La Chunga and Antonio Gades. Colita then traveled to Andalusia, the birthplace of flamenco, always at the controls of her inseparable six hundred. From that trip would emerge the book ‘Lights and Shadows of Flamenco’, a legendary work in which Colita makes a magnificent photographic journey through the world of flamenco and gypsies, a world that fascinated her.

The exhibition will be on view until November 21.

Mar Arza, Pep Duran, Lluís Hortalà, Oriol Vilapuig at De lugares e cousas. Colección de Arte Banco Sabadell, Museo Centro Gaiás, Santiago de Compostela.

The word “place” has other meanings that can help us understand the works in this exhibition. We say “in place of” to indicate that something replaces something else, or “to put oneself in someone’s place” to imagine that we are this someone or to understand him or her. To “take place” or “to take place” is to be the cause of something happening and, consequently, “not to take place” means that something does not happen.

The selection of works in the exhibition has to do with this relationship of construction, foundation, signification and symbolization between places and things: historical places and places of memory; geometry and space; the limit and the empty place; bodies, words and space; habitable places, the city and the territory.

The exhibition will be open from October 21 to April 17, 2023 at Museo Centro Gaiás, Santiago de Compostela.

Gonzalo Elvira at Centro de Arte Caja Burgos

Gonzalo Elvira‘s exhibition “Reading the Dream” at the CAB shows drawings, paintings, objects and books making up an extensive story with which the artist has wanted to interweave two of the fundamental pillars of contemporary culture on both sides of the Atlantic: the formal artistic investigations of a rational nature nurtured by the Bauhaus, and psychoanalysis as a therapy to treat emotional problems. The exhibition will be held at the Centro de Arte Caja Burgos from October 7 to January 22.
