ART NOTES
 

Contemporary Art and Patios in Quito

Setting the Cuenca Biennial aside, Arte Contemporáneo and Patios de Quito is the most ambitious current-art event to have taken place in Ecuador. This is especially significant if we take into account that it became a reality through the efforts of a private entity, in a context of nationalistic and neo-patriotic regression that is reorienting, for the bad, the State's highly bureaucratic, scarcely professional, retrograde cultural institutions. A commendable achievement for ARTEDUCARTE (part the El Comercio Group) and its director, María Consuelo Tohme, considering the successful coordination effort required for this event in a country where, as is well known, pushing forward any such large-scale enterprise is best described as an ordeal.

Biennial

Dominó caníbal

If one phenomenon can be said to have kept the international art scene in its thrall over the past two decades, it has been its “biennialization.” True, the first precedents date from the 1950s, when São Paulo, Cairo, and even Paris began to organize international art exhibitions under a model adapted from the Venice Biennale, which, on its part, was powerfully reborn from the ashes of WWII.

Jaime Franco

After having created works such as Construcciones Ilusorias (Illusory Constructions), Debris, and Vestigio (Vestige), artist Jaime Franco now presents the exhibition entitled Rastro (Trace). Curated by María Escallón, the exhibition opened at the Museo de Artes Visuales of the Universidad Jorge Tadeo Lozano. It consists of large-format paintings on canvas and two other large works created directly on the museum wall. These images explore fields such as human perception, philosophical fundamentals, and mathematical principles.

Kevin Mancera

I was reading not long ago the writings of Robert Venturi, the architect, and among his reflections I found a definition of art. Venturi recognizes art in the design of a city or in a building on the basis of the validity of the questions it poses and the liveliness of its meaning. This forceful maxim serves me well to write about Sobre el fracaso, an exhibition that above all posed a valid question about a feeling that is part of our education and is reflected in the naïve belief that Man is like a hero destined to dominate chaos.
