Standards of Reality: Five Artists from Barcelona
In this Los Angeles debut exhibition, the curator reunites the video work of five artists from Barcelona who have exhibited at the Centre d’Art Santa Mònica in Barcelona (CASM) as part of the institution’s mission to support new work by local and international artists. Mr. Barenblit’s selection reflects on three primary themes he consistently finds in the work of so many contemporary artists: the continuous critique of reality and its underlying inherent contradictions; the power of the moving image in contemporary culture; and the role of the individual in a conflicted society.
Artists: Martí Anson, Carles Congost, Pep Duran, Mabel Palacín, Tere Recarens
