Art Basel Miami Beach

KURIMANZUTTO

For Art Basel Miami Beach 2021, kurimanzutto’s booth will focus on significant pieces by our gallery artists who often work with political, social and poetic concerns. Basing their practice within a strongly conceptual rubric, what will be revealed is how form follows concept as the works on show employ media ranging from combinations of ready-made materials, found objects and images. Our presentation will fuse the artistic practices of Latin American artists such as Abraham Cruzvillegas, Carlos Amorales, Damian Ortega, Gabriel Orozco and Roberto Gil de Montes, with European artists such as Leonor Antunes and Nairy Baghramian. In doing so, our booth will speak to the recurring concerns and aesthetics, enabling conversations between the local and the international and across varied layers of meaning.

kurimanzutto

kurimanzutto’s selection for SOUTH SOUTH focuses primarily on the gallery’s Latin American artists. Working across a range of media, from painting, collage, and sculpture, the works collectively speak to the hidden potential within materials; to develop alternate systems of communication, create visual languages, and the artists’ ability to produce a world of their own. Where Minerva Cuevas addresses corporate accountability and to the power within healing and materiality, Abraham Cruzvillegas’ golden Blind Self Portrait creates a composite grid of abstraction that simultaneously presents and conceals its makers’ identity, in constant fluctuation. Equally, Fake News, a recent series by Wilfredo Prieto, seeks to parody news consumption by abstracting stories that have populated media coverage in the times of COVID-19. Truth and knowledge are simultaneously satirized and scrutinized. Expanding into fields of abstraction, Jungla de Estrellas (Star Jungle), a new series by Carlos Amorales, densely layers intricate angular forms into a complex landscape of interlocking and overlapping shapes into compositions that explore light and color. Dr. Lakra, in his idiosyncratic vocabulary, flirtatiously looks at stylizations and visual tropes associated with the ‘Oriental’ in popular culture, specifically tattooing.
