This first solo exhibition in Barcelona by Brazilian artist Ernest Neto is an immersive, colourful and sensory installation, conceived and produced especially for the space it occupies in the Blueproject Foundation. Created around the concepts of water, sea, land and, in general, our relationship with nature, the installation features a giant representation of a fish that you can go inside to relax and meditate.
This is the first major institutional exhibition of Rosemari Castoro’s work, and it focuses on the years 1964–79. Castoro (1939–2015) established her career in the context of minimalism and conceptualism in the USA, circulating at the heart of the New York avant-garde. The exhibition shows her work in detail for the first time, revealing the diversity of her practice, which encompassed abstract painting, conceptual works, performative actions in the street, and studio, poetry, mail art, sculpture, installation and land art. It explores the context of her work, her activism including her role in the Art Workers’ Coalition, her association with contemporaries such as Carl Andre, Hollis Frampton, Sol LeWitt and Yvonne Rainer, among others, and her relationship with feminism.
The Fundació Vila Casas inaugurates a new exhibition space with a new show dedicated to painter Lita Cabellut. The work of the artist, who lives in the Netherlands and is one of the most sought-after Spanish creators in the international market, is inscribed in the derivatives of hyperrealism and goes beyond the conventional limits of painting, placing herself in the terrain of risk, expression and the psychological portrait with a latent classicism inherited from the likes of Goya, Velázquez or Rembrandt.
