VAEA brings the exhibition "5X5 Real UnReal" to New York
The Venezuelan American Endowment for the Arts (VAEA) will present the fourth edition of the "5X5" exhibition series “5X5 Real UnReal”, which unites the work of five Venezuelan artists and five North American artists with the idea of promoting both a physical and virtual dialogue among the artists and to investigate and celebrate the universal language of art. In this opportunity, "5X5 Real UnReal" that took place last year at the Museo de Arte Acarigua-Araure (MAAA) in Portuguesa, Venezuela, curated by Rolando J. Carmona and Conor Risch, will be exhibited in New York at One Art Space from November 7th to November 30th
of 2013. VAEA is proud to carry out another edition of "5X5" and continue to promote art and culture between two nations as Venezuela and the United States.
The artworks were created in two different contexts, but coincide in many of their dynamics: The North American artists speak of power relations around the industrial production, natural resource management, and consumer industry. But reality in Venezuelan context adds other variants: What is art in a rural context? The differences between high and low culture, cultural appropriation, or the "Normality" of magic realism. The audience will appreciate the work of: Nayari Castillo, Richard Garet, Pepe Lopez, Yucef Merhi, Juan Carlos Rodriguez, Nathan Anspaugh, Zhivago Duncan, J. Henry Fair, Justin Maxon and Daniel Shea.
