    Maria Loboda

    The beasts

    May 24 – September 29, 2013

    Since the end of the 1960s Cildo Meireles (Rio de Janeiro, 1948) has been developing new possibilities for the redefinition of conceptual art, based on a relationship with the viewer's sensorial experience, the critical use of ideological and economic circulation systems, and also an ethical connection with the world, which are the foundations of the artist's ongoing critical interpretation.

    Azucena Vieites

    Tableau vivant

  • Exhibition view. Imagined Memories, 2013
    March 14 – September 2, 2013

    Mitsuo Miura

    Imagined Memories

    Although recognised primarily as a painter, in the making of his works Mitsuo Miura goes beyond traditional pictorial media. His art can thus be situated halfway along the path towards sculpture or installation, due to its tendency to use chromatic forms in space. 

  • Cristina Iglesias. Towards the Bottom, 2009 (detail). Artist Collection
    February 6 – May 13, 2013

    Cristina Iglesias has been very interested in redefining sculpture as an expanded field that leads to a questioning of the object in its relationship with space and architecture. Her sculptures integrate with the architecture of the places they occupy, and thus play with the interweaving of reality and appearances.

    Robert Adams: The Place We Live

    A Retrospective Selection of Photographs

    With a photographic style that is austere and direct yet also full of nuance and expressive potential, Robert Adams (Orange, New Jersey, 1937) has been widely regarded as one of the most lucid chroniclers of the profound changes taking place in the landscape of the American West in recent decades.
