Chilean artist Felipe Mujica exhibits from May 20 at PAMM

For this exhibition, the artist will create new works in collaboration with artisans from the Miccosukee tribe of South Florida, who were among the first inhabitants of this territory. In this collaboration, Mujica has investigated geometric abstraction and its history, as well as the metaphysical exploration of the world. While inside the gallery space, viewers will be surrounded by approximately 12-15 curtains with symbols and patterns of the outside world, according to the Miccosukee worldview. Additional curtains will be located in exterior areas of the museum, which will be visible from the gallery window. The exhibit space will also be used as an instance for Miccosukee artisans and the public to connect through programming that will share important aspects of their culture and traditions.

Felipe Mujica (1974) Chilean visual artist who lives and works in New York. He studied a Bachelor of Arts with a focus in Engraving arts, at the Catholic University of Chile, Santiago

Patrick Hamilton exhibits in Madrid

The renowned Chilean artist exhibits at the Conde Duque Contemporary Culture Center “The Red Greenhouse“, a translucent red methacrylate installation with which he proposes a visual game with which to make us think. We see the greenhouse from the outside red like blood, like the traffic light, like the flag that warns us of danger and from the inside we see the outside world also red, like fire, like the global warming that it wants to denounce, like that greenhouse effect that does not we are able to stop.

The artist endows his works with ideological content, what he calls “visual thought”. He tries to provoke the viewer and, always consistent with his discourse of political and economic criticism, he uses “poor” materials, sometimes waste, to invoice his works.
