In the early seventies in Caracas (Venezuela), Claudio Perna did a series of experiments under the title "Infiltraciones" [Infiltrations]. The works consisted of classic paintings [J1] projected onto[J2] or interrupted by the bodies of the artist’s friends and of the artist himself. That idea—cherished by Perna—of "infiltrating" the art world with the brashness of other bodies is, in my view, an excellent metaphor for what is now, for a great many viewers, the primary way to relate to art: the intense juncture of an abundance of works and visitors part and parcel of the art fair format as art agora.
For Pinta Projects (Pinta Miami 2018), Proyecto Visible with the collaboration of curator Jesús Fuenmayor has decided to present a group of four outstanding emerging Latin American artists interested in reflecting in their work the "flaws," "noises," and "interruptions" that occur in dialogue both within the works themselves and between them and the environments in which they are exhibited.
The four artists selected by Fuenmayor and invited by Proyecto Visible are Yaima Carrazana (CUBA-THE NETHERLANDS), Ilich Castillo (ECUADOR), Oscar Pabón (VENEZUELA-SPAIN), and Yuli Yamagata (BRAZIL).
Works the artists produced in Miami will be exhibited alongside a selection of their copious production on paper. In addition to works by these four emerging figures, Proyecto Visible will present works by recognized contemporary artists in order to generate dialogue between their productions.
