Arturo Duclos

Presented in one of the exhibit areas of the Galería Moro, the exhibition Sinécdoque is a sort of “compressed” retrospective by Arturo Duclos (1959). It includes 15 two-dimensional works that were created between 1988 and 2010. These share the codes and strategies essential to Duclos’ work, including pieces from series such as Composiciones Suprematistas (Suprematist Compositions) and, fewer in number, other pieces that investigate new surfaces and signs.
