PRESS RELEASE

In 1978, American Art Historian and Critic Rosalind Krauss published her famous article entitled “The sculpture of the expanded field”, opening contemporary art to the opportunity to develop conventional artistic languages in term of hybridization and fusion of media and resources, as well as considering the surrounding space as an extension of the artwork itself.
After more than three decades of continuous “expansion” to the borders and logics of other languages, many artistic proposals do no fit anymore in close categories such as painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, video or installation. In accordance with this idea, the exhibition “Perspectives of contemporary drawing. From pencil on paper to the expanded drawing”, examines the works of a group of artists that trace the current arch of contemporary drawing, starting from the more traditional techniques based on pencil on paper to the most innovative practices, such as video-drawing.
With their sensitive perception of drawing as an expanded possibility to analyze the world and the artistic languages, these artists make a meaningful contribution to contemporary creation. The selection of artists included in this exhibition shows that drawing is possible nowadays by means of cuttings or embroideries, by the use of writing, collage, photography or digital animations. The result of this combination of perspectives is an exhibition that reflects the great dynamism of the contemporary artistic practices based on drawing.
Throughout the different perspectives of Raymond Chaves & Gilda Mantilla, Guy Goldstein, Sybille Hotz, Maria Ikonomopoulos, Takehito Koganezawa, Katie Patterson, Michal Shamir, Sophia Tabatadze, Stephan Thiel, Mariana Vassileva, Bridgitte Waldrach and Gal Weinstein, it is possible to realize that, even drawing still is the perfect tool for the development of other artworks and projects, and, meanwhile continues being the intimate and free practice that it has always been, drawing has reached a very high level of autonomy by means of its more hybrid identity. Getting closer to all artistic languages, drawing is in fact attaining a much more strong identity.
This exhibition is part of the research on contemporary drawing that is currently undertaking its curator, Pilar Ribal.
Artists: Raymond Chaves & Gilda Mantilla, Guy Goldstein, Sybille Hotz, Maria Ikonomopoulos, Takehito Koganezawa, Katie Patterson, Michal Shamir, Sophia Tabatadze, Stephan Thiel, Mariana Vassileva, Bridgitte Waldrach y Gal Weinstein.
Galleries collaborating in this project: La Caja Blanca (Palma de Mallorca), Chelouche Gallery (Tel Aviv), DNA Galerie (Berlin) Christopher Grimes (Los Ángeles), Mirta Demare (Rotterdam) y Widmer & Theodoridis (Zurich).
