Gallery Nosco and Largo das Artes are pleased to welcome the public to the opening of Binary on March 28th 2013. The innovative exhibition, curated by Cyril Moumen, is showcasing artists from the US, UK, and Brasil and heralding their arrival on the international scene.
An eclectic amalgamation of artistic mediums, the exhibition is comprised of new media, painting, photography, drawing, sculpture and sound module. The multifaceted combination diverse means of artistic construction enhance the structure of the exhibition.
Camila Emson’s paintings, Gabriel Netto’s drawings and Túlio Pinto’s sculpture are all utilized as starting points to navigate the exhibition and are indicative of the tension encircling artistic endeavour and its porous relationship with reality.
Brian House’s new media and sound piece, Micah Schippa’s video and Pablo Ferretti’s paintings, on the other hand, use layering of memory, stories and images to construct their works. While Ferretti’s work is analogue, however, Schippa and House manipulate the works between analogue and digital; Schippa’s commences as an analogue piece before morphing into digital in contrast to House who takes digital and transforms it into an analogue platform.
Marcelo Jacome’s unseen new body of work and Marcone Moreira photographs, continue to explore further dialogue with space and culture.
Binary exhibition has been inspired by Cyril Moumen’s travels in addition to his curational residency at Largo das Artes, that now expands from a gallery into a centre for contemporary art, with studios, a gallery and a residency programme. Moumen’s focus upon different artistic mediums, how they interact with one another or the audience individually before unifying to create a dialogue with the audience highlights the binary, or twofold, nature of the exhibition. It is an innovative and dynamic outlook, which aims to further inspire artistic endeavour.
Camilla Emson has a forthcoming NY show with the galley in the spring, after her residency in the Fundacion Rozenblum in Buenos Aires.
Brian House has exhibited in the Museum of Contemporary Art in L.A and Museum of Modern Art in NY and is showing for the first time in Brazil.
Gallery Nosco has recently added the work of Marcelo Jácome to Charles Saatchi’s collection and forthcoming paper show at the Saatchi Gallery in London for June.
Túlio Pinto has a forthcoming solo show in Sao Paulo with Baró Gallery.
