Fantasy, high heels, pink, interlude, prosthesis, accessibility, the norm perverting the norm: this is the world of Costa Badía (Madrid, 1981) which will take over the ground floor of Museo CA2M from 26 January.
Emil Lime is an exhibition by Esther Gatón curated by Cory John Scozzari. This project sets in motion forms, techniques and conceptual interests frequent in Gatón's practice, such as the construction of ambiguous environments, amateur science, visual artifices, and the crossovers between femininity and machinery, articulating them in a single installation.
This exhibition by the artist Karlos Gil (Talavera de la Reina, 1984) is the most complete public presentation of his work to date. It showcases some of the various lines of work that have marked his practice in recent years: the relationship between artificial and natural, technology and the body, obsolescence, the complexity of second and third degree urban signs, science fiction... among other issues.
This exhibition commemorates the 70th year since the birth of the artist Juan Muñoz (Madrid, 1953 – Ibiza, 2001). In recent decades, no other Spanish artist had achieved such international fame, with a dazzling career from his first exhibition in 1984 until his untimely death at the age of 48. The show—which will be a prolongation of the exhibition on view at Alcalá 31 between February and June 2023—will focus on the first ten years of his practice.
In his work, Xabier Salaberria explores the forms in which certain structures behave in specific spaces, perverting their apparent neutrality and questioning the categories in which they are conventionally inscribed.
Alexander Apóstol’s projects build a critical analysis of the aesthetic processes of political construction in his native Venezuela. Like other artists from his generation, who started to exhibit their work in the early-nineties, Apóstol (Barquisimeto, 1969) used the tools of photography and video as key elements in a critique of representation, in which the visual culture produced by power and the mass media—with their stereotypes, clichés, concealments and propagandas—is co-opted as the raw material of the work of contemporary art.
It’s Possible Because It’s Possible brings together a series of pieces by Raqs Media Collective, a group of artists created in 1992 by Jeebesh Bagchi (1966), Monica Narula (1969) and Shuddhabrata Sengupta (1968).
Fernando Sánchez Castillo’s work casts a critical gaze over history, both ancient and recent, while at once examining art’s role in depicting and shaping our view of it. The exhibition title, Más allá or Beyond in English, suggests manifold readings.
Made by Jacobo Castellano between 2004 and 2005, Casa is one of the artist’s first sculptural pieces. Based on his grandparent’s now abandoned house in a village in Jaen
