• Misrepresentation, Mistake, and Non-Disclosure
    05 Jul 2012 - 25 Aug 2012 | Curated by Marina Kurikhina

    Misrepresentation, Mistake, and Non-Disclosure brings together the works of five Mexican artists of the same generation—Stefan Brüggemann, José Davila, Gonzalo Lebrija, Jorge Méndez Blake, and Tercerunquinto—and presents their work together for the first time. The exhibition focuses on the ways in which the works of these artists interact with one another, and explores the immediate similarities between their artistic practices. Approaching these works together reveals the parallels between their uses of visual language, which combines progressive ideologies with sombre topics such as ‘void,’ ‘failure,’ and ‘dystopia.’

    13 May 2011 - 11 Jun 2011 | Rove Gallery, 33-34 Hoxton Square, London N1 6NN | Curated by Marina Kurikhina

    Fundación Magnolia is delighted to invite you to the first UK exhibition of Mexico City based artist Alejandro Almanza Pereda (b. 1977). This presentation will offer an overview of Almanza Perda’s practice, which consists of installation, video and drawing, and the exhibition will feature new commissions as well as recent work.

    Known for questioning and challenging the rules of physics Alejandro fiercely explores the concept of gravity in his work. Relentlessly pushing these boundaries, Almanza Pereda relies purely on the forces of resistance to hold his works in place.
