Between 19 and 23 February Ivorypress will participate in the 33rd edition of the international contemporary
art fair ARCOmadrid. This is the third time that Ivorypress attends the fair, a space for the promotion of its
artists in the Spanish and international markets.
As part of the general programme of ARCOmadrid, Ivorypress’s stand will present works by Spanish
artists such as
, of whom two of his recently created polyptics will be exhibited, as well
, who will show the sculptures of her series
(Wells) and two unique pieces
screen-printed on mother-of-pearl silk that make up the series
E.S. (Estudio 11 y 12)
As for photography, the Ivorypress stand will exhibit two large-format works by German photographer
(Pyöngyang, 2007) and
(Athens, 2009); images that
show the peculiar way in which Struth creates panoramic images in a clear and neutral manner, to allow
the architecture to speak for itself. At the fair, the concurrence of Thomas Struth and Cristina Iglesias’s
work will offer a taste of the joint exhibition by the artists that will open at Ivorypress in May, running
parallel to PHotoEspaña.
Another of the international photographers that Ivorypress will present at ARCOmadrid is the South
, whose first exhibition in Spain took place at the gallery in 2013. Three
photographs from the series
Portraits of Time
(1998) have been selected for the
occasion, drawing attention to Koo’s line of work in which he explores the nuances and shapes of
different white surfaces.
will also be represented at the Ivorypress stand with photographs.
This Spanish artist based in New York is part of a generation of abstract painters that came into
international prominence in the eighties. His photographic work, although lesser known than his pictorial
work, is fundamental for the creation of his paintings, offering inspiration and keys for its interpretation.
Also on show at the gallery space at the fair will be the work
Les Couleurs Suite, Les Magentas #1
Pedro Cabrita Reis
, exhibited in Spain for the first time and which continues the line of work that
the Portuguese artist showed in his exhibition
, which took place at Ivorypress in 2012. The
balance, power and classicism that define his work is evident in the large surfaces of monochrome paint
over construction materials of the piece. Monochromatism is also the foundation of the paintings of the
young German artist
, represented by Ivorypress, who will show two of his latest large-
format works at ARCOmadrid, made of white lacquer on retroreflective fabric.
Ivorypress’s selection of work for the fair is completed with two sculptures. The former one is a huanhuali
wood sculpture by Chinese artist
(2011), in which he revisits traditional oriental
materials to create a sphere in which he studies proportion and shape.
The second of the sculptural works is the prototype
Sala de Lectura Estrella
(Star-shaped Reading Room),
by Los Carpinteros. Additionally, parallel to ARCOmadrid Ivorypress Space will host the second exhibition
in the gallery of the Cuban duo
. The show, entitled
, comprises their latest work,
which evidences concerns surrounding the human figure—whether physiological, ideological or related
to consumerism—from an anthropological perspective.
