BAG Art Gallery is hosting the solo show of Venezuelan artist Mariana Copello. The exhibition, Choreographic Abstractionism in Mariana Copello, presents a selection of 40 artworks, and will be open from October 26 until November 6, 2019.
The exhibition consists of sculptures, installations, photographs, and works on paper; the two-dimensional pieces respond to the artist’s most recent investigation and could be seen through a new series of silkscreens, Linear Variations (2019).
The exhibition offers a journey through the artist’s exploration on three aspects: color, absence of color, and the return to color. There will also be a space for a retrospective that links her previous works with the most recent ones, emphasizing the evolution of the artist’s work.
The exhibition is being curated by Victor Fuenmayor, well-known art critic and writer, who holds a Humanities degree, an Honorary Doctorate by the Universidad del Zulia, a PhD in Semiology from the Sorbonne in Paris, and was decorated as Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French Government. The museography is being done by Rosa Ana Orlando, an art specialist with extensive knowledge of Art History, many years of experience in art collection management, as well as in exhibition planning and design. Rosa Ana Orlando holds a Master of Liberal Arts and a Master of Arts in Museum Studies from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.
The exhibition Choreographic Abstractionism in Mariana Copello counts with the important collaboration with Venezuelan multi-media artist Violette Bule, who is participating with a series of 22 photographs of her creation, and “under her vision and creative lense” of the monumental sculpture of Copello (Frecuencia Espacial, 2017).
