On 19th February TRAVESÀA CUATRO opens “Conversations II”, the second group show of this series where the gallery's artists show their works in relation to other international artists.
In 2006, TRAVESÀA CUATRO started an exhibition project searching for new ways to show the gallery artists’ work. The project started with the “Conversations” exhibition that now leads to “Conversations II”. Following the concept of the former, the gallery asked six of its artists to think of another artist with whom they would like to exhibit. After getting in touch with these artists, the gallery sent them the proposal by creating a relationship between their works. The artists started a discussion of shared ideas about which of their works would fit best in direct dialogue. The result of these dialogues doesn’t lead to a group show with a common theme, but a group of artist couples where the works complement, face or discuss different aspects either formally, aesthetically or conceptually. The exhibition space will be organised around the conversations between paired works where the display of each couple is independent from the others but united in the global conception of the show itself.
The participating artists are:
John Isaacs (UK) – Damien Hirst (UK) Jose DÀ¡vila (México) – Pedro Cabrita Reis (Portugal) Marco Rountree (México) – Yuri Masnyj (USA) Gonzalo Lebrija (México) – John Baldessari (USA) MÀ¡ximo GonzÀ¡lez (Argentina) – Jim Hodges (USA) Dustin Yellin (USA) – Ernesto Caivano (USA) Mateo LÀ³pez (Colombia) – Jorge Macchi (Argentina)
