Nativa: a traveling pop-up gallery is born
With the exhibition Ensayo (Rehearsal) a nomadic and mutant project aimed at the promotion of Latin American artists emerges.
Opening on February 26 at 6pm at Doctor Fourquet 31, Madrid
Nativa is a temporary gallery proposal, with ephemeral and changing exhibition space. As an art project directed by artists, it promotes the work of emerging creators, mainly from Latin America. Its main objective is to provide a visibility platform through the exhibition and sale of works in small and medium format at affordable prices.
All the exhibited artworks are printed with high technical quality, as well as framed, for their better conservation, with materials such as acid-free passepartout and permanent inks. The works, in numbered prints, are delivered with certificates of authenticity signed by the artists.
Ensayo, the first exhibition as an itinerant pop-up gallery, brings together the work of three creators focused on photography as a medium: Patricia Martín and Omar Gámez from Mexico, and Suwon Lee from Venezuela. The works create a thematic exchange from three different approaches towards the of understanding of the human condition. These are: the iconography of the Mayan imaginary (Martín), the balance and intimacy of human relationships and emotions (Gámez), and the contemporary natural and urban landscape as a meditation on the sublime (Lee). In other words, the deep psyche, the binding sphere of the emotional and the spirit.
