“Luís Coquenão. Paisajes de tinta”. Fernández-Braso Gallery. From 09/14/17 to 10/28/17.
Artist: Luís Coquenão
Fluid landscapes, delicate colors, textures and subtle effects of the brush that immerse us in the mysteries of nature. Influenced by Chinese philosophy and painting, Luís Conquenão creates his works in the certainty that nature exists both outside and inside the observer. This exhibition is the continuity of a work started some ten years ago, in which gestural improvisation reconfigures the place of chance and implicit meaning.

“Oriol Vilanova. 42 días.” Gallery Parra&Romero. From 13/09/17 to 04/11/17.
Artist: Oriol Vilanova
42 days is an exhibition that, unlike the usual system to which we are accustomed, unfolds in time instead of in space. During the 42 days that the exhibition lasts, the exposed piece is exchanged daily for another, each one being placed in a different place in the gallery. There are not two days when the exhibition is the same.
This component of randomness, variability and uncertainty turns 42 days into an experiment that inverts the exhibition format -one of the axes of Oriol Vilanova’s work-: in order to see the entire exhibition, it would not be necessary to cover it entirely in its spatial scope but throughout of all its temporal extension, which is practically impossible.
