Exhibition on view from May 6 – May 30, 2016, at Y Gallery New York, NY.
GALLERY is pleased to present DIVAGATION, a group show curated by Meyken Barreto, Carlos Garcia-Montero, Cecilia Jurado and ghostwriter. The exhibition features the work of ten international artists, and will be comprised of paintings, sculptures, installations, and mixed media works.The show brings together a group of international artists whose practice is characterized by a special sensitivity towards the aesthetic and symbolic potential of everyday materials and objects. Their approach to artistic creation is strongly informed by the context in which their work is produced and by the background from which they come. With different points of departure, from performative to space-based concepts, they investigate and generate narratives about contemporaneity. From Mexico, Peru,USA, Israel, Spain and Serbia, the artists gathered here address different topics from social or politics to contemplative or physics, but they are all joined by a peculiar way to transform their reality in poetic ways. Felipe Arturo, Adrián S. Bara, Alberto Borea, Radamés “Juni” Figueroa, Derek Franklin, Ximena Garrido- Lecca, Leor Grady, José Carlos Martinat, PS3* and Slobodan Stosic are the artists included in this exhibition. Eight of them exhibit for the first time at Y Gallery. (Y Gallery press release)
