Three New Exhibitions Opening at Bellas Artes


art exhibition

By Viridiana Gutiérrez Tejeda

Bellas Artes is pleased to invite you to the opening of its newest artistic exhibitions next Wednesday, October 17, at 7 pm. It is vital for the Cultural Center to present the work of local, national, and international artists that enrich the cultural life of San Miguel de Allende. For this reason, and to give closure to an annual cycle of wonderful exhibitions, we will present the works of three artists who demonstrate this diversity.

Becoming Bird, by the American artist Linda Girvin, includes a series of photographs and video installation. The visceral portraits of Girvin mark the line between life and death, realism and abstraction, while highlighting an artist in transition. Girvin’s artistic work has been focused on photography. Her previous works reflected her tendency toward abstraction, but she soon shifted her focus to lenticular photography, a process that involves superimposing similar images to produce an animated effect.

In this exhibition, she let these dead birds talk. In her own words: “The act of this collaboration, of this exploring, touching and seeing, has sharpened my awareness and dissolved my sense of other.”

In his sculpture and installation, Essays About Void, Mexican artist Miguel Loyola seeks to exalt the human condition as a way to achieve an interdependent and harmonious society convinced of the vocation of art as an agent of change. His main interest resides in projects that promote a dialogue with the viewer to think about current social problems and their personal role in a possible solution. Through the assembly of opposing materials and the repetition of shapes and volumes he constructs, he is interested in the aesthetic synergies produced by contrast.

And to close this cycle, we are opening the exhibition Trips of the Ghosts by Mario Kon, a sculptor for more than forty years. Born in Buenos Aires, he has a degree in mechanical engineering from Tufts University. A mechanical engineer who studied at the University of Buenos Aires, Kon emigrated to the US in 1973 and graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston in 1979. He has garnered several awards and scholarships and has participated in multiple group and solo exhibitions around the world. His plastic approach is aggressive and restorative, working with plywood and his own imperfections. He divides space using lines and curves. He cuts, burns, and paints the surface of the work, revealing his interest in the physical, emotional, and spiritual forces that drive his creative ideas as well as exploring positive and negative space, depth, and perspective.

Come and celebrate the opening of these three magnificent exhibitions.
