Puerta Roja Launches New Phase with Debut Exhibition in Mexico City, Territorios Compartidos / Shared Territories /共享領土


Mexico City– 17 September 2019 – Following Puerta Roja announcing its expansion beyond Asia Pacific in April 2019, the gallery launches its first pop-up exhibition in Mexico City. Since 2010, Puerta Roja introduced both emerging and established Latin American and Spanish artists to Asia Pacific, increasing the awareness of the region’s rich contribution to the global art landscape. Now, on new ground, the gallery showcases the artists who captured the imagination of Asian audiences and conquered the region under the representation of Puerta Roja. Hosted in a historic home of the iconic Colonia Roma, where most of the prominent galleries from Mexico are located, Territorios Compartidos / Shared Territories / 共享領土 embodies the return to an origin, carrying the fresh insight and perspective collected along the way. Presenting predominantly Mexican artists, the exhibition re-frames the familiar from outside eyes and reveals hidden connections between Asia and Latin America.

Territorios Compartidos / Shared Territories / 共享領土features paintings and sculptures by CARLOS CRUZ-DIEZ, ROBERTO CORTÁZAR, IRENE DUBROVSKY, MARIANO FERRANTE, MARÍA GARCÍA IBAÑEZ, JAVIER LEÓN PÉREZ, FERNANDO PRATS, LAURENT MARTIN ‘LO’, HÉCTOR VELÁZQUEZ AND VENTOSO. The selection reflects Puerta Roja’s distinctive focus on process-driven artistic practices that pursue conceptual and intellectual integrity whilst engaging the viewer through powerful aesthetics. Themes of abstraction, scientific research and underlying structures in nature are also present, as subject matter that goes beyond cultural context and connects to viewers on a universal level.

Puerta Roja announces new strategy

Gallery expansion to Mexico introducing Asian artists to Latin America and relocation of its Hong Kong space


Hong Kong – 30 April 2019 – Puerta Roja kicked off 2019 with a bang, selected by many reviewers as the top booth at Taipei Dangdai and Art Central. Such recognition is testament to how, in nine years, the pioneering gallery has established itself as an influential and forward-thinking space, unafraid to challenge and respond strategically to new trends in the market.

Since 2010, Puerta Roja has expanded the appreciation of Latin American and Spanish art across Asia Pacific. Through its stable of master, mid-career and emerging artists, the gallery has advocated for untold narratives relevant to Asian audiences. Through its programming, the gallery has developed deep relationships with established collectors and the art community in Hong Kong and other markets such as Indonesia, Taiwan and Korea; and remains committed towards enriching Hong Kong’s cultural scene.

Puerta Roja’s Founder and Director and Co-President of the Hong Kong Art Gallery Association, Adriana Alvarez-Nichol, comments on Puerta Roja’s future strategy: “As we look forward to our growth in the next five years, it is essential to understand the changing trends manifesting in the art market. The forces of globalisation, concentration of the top market, growth in online transactions and growing demands in terms of infrastructure and art fair participation, necessitate a long-term outlook and a creative response. In our tenth year and third stage of our evolution, we will continue to build on what defines our gallery: our artists, our community and our deep understanding of the Latin-American and Asian art markets.

Firstly, this year will see our formal expansion to Mexico. Our focus will not only further our current stable of artists but broaden our mission to create cultural bridges between the two regions. We will showcase Asian artists in Mexico and formalise our cross-regional engagement programme in response to strong demand from collectors for deeper cultural experiences beyond exhibitions.
Secondly, in Hong Kong we will become ever more ambitious in terms of partnerships with other art professionals and disruptive collaborative gallery models. For the past two years we have successfully organised several exhibitions in cooperation with both local and international galleries which have been well received by our clients. We believe such collaborations will be essential to the future success of mid-sized galleries and a trend that is rapidly developing around the world. We will continue to strive to redefine rigid barriers in the art world and provide a stronger platform for our artists.

The gallery’s transformation will begin by moving from our current space in June in order to realign our next Hong Kong location to best serve our new strategy. We expect to reopen in the fall. We will continue to work with our outstanding stable of artists and partners in the months to come. We look forward to sharing with our community our plans after the summer.”

Puerta Roja’s current exhibition, Visions in Motion, will remain on view until May 25th. The exhibition curates a dialogue between artists who have previously exhibited in major solo-shows at the gallery and provides a condensed physical map of the gallery’s development over the last nine years.

Mariano Ferrante is one of the most dynamic and innovative young successors of a long tradition of geometric abstract masters from South America. This important milestone is well deserved and reflects the artist practice. In his works, Mariano invites us to face an optimistic whilst imperfect future, where science continues to bring progress, but where human sensibility and imperfection make it vibrant.

We look forward to see his progress and are excited about his continuous success!

Puerta Roja Presents a Solo Exhibition by Leading Op and Kinetic Master, Carlos Cruz-Diez at the Inaugural Edition of Taipei Dangdai

Taipei Dangai 2019


18-21.01.2019

 

Hong Kong – 7 December 2018 – To continue Puerta Roja’s eighth anniversary celebrations, the gallery is proud to participate in the ‘Solos’ sector of the inaugural Taipei Dangdai international art fair, presenting three large-scale and previously unseen works by Franco-Venezuelan artist, Carlos Cruz-Diez. Building upon the tremendous success of the first solo show in Asia of the Op and Kinetic Art master, hosted by Puerta Roja in 2017, the artist himself selected this collection of works from his seminal 1959 Physichromie series, which still holds unwavering universal relevance in today’s world.

Puerta Roja has been committed to the Taiwanese art market and audience since 2012 and is delighted to return to the Taipei, taking part in its newest fair. Taipei Dangdai, which translates as ‘the present moment,’ runs from 18 to 20 January 2019 and serves as the perfect platform for an artist for whom experience of the ‘present’ is at the heart of his discourse: “I propose autonomous colour, without anecdotes, deprived of symbolisms, colour seen as an ephemeral circumstance and in continuous mutation, creating realities at every instant.”

Cruz-Diez’ historical significance is validated by hundreds of international exhibitions, permanent large-scale public projects and ephemeral interventions. His work is in more than 60 museums worldwide, including the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, Tate Modern, Kunstmuseum and the Centre Pompidou and has been appreciated throughout the Asia Pacific since 1988 when his mural-sized work Physichromie Double Face was installed in the South Korea Olympic Park. In 1989, the artist participated in the exhibition Aspects of Contemporary Painters in Paris at the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts presenting one of his iconic Physichromies which would become part of the museum’s permanent collection. From 2013 to 2014 Circumstance and Ambiguity of Colour toured 11 museums in China to great acclaim. Recently the artists prominence continues to grow, Cruz-Diez was prominently featured at Art Basel, Switzerland 2018 with the entire UBS Art Basel VIP lounge dedicated to his architectural work from 1979 Environnement Chromatique, as well as exhibiting his large-scale installation work Translucent Chromointerferent Environment as part of the Unlimited sector of the fair. In bringing the artist’s work to Taipei, Puerta Roja will present to the discerning and vibrant attendees of Taipei Dangdai, an artist whose work is predicated on universalism and interaction.

On his return to Taiwan, Carlos Cruz-Diez comments, “I am very glad that 30 years after the exhibition Aspects of Contemporary Painters in Paris that took place in 1989 in the Taiwan Museum of Art, Puerta Roja Gallery takes my work back to Taiwan. We come full circle and keep sowing new seeds for the future.”

Cruz-Diez describes his discourse as “Art of Real Movement and Space.” Through interaction, the viewer becomes an accomplice to the artist, an essential participant in the artwork itself. The works on display at the fair depict a flat surface of vertical bands rendered in a contrasting palette and arranged with mathematical regularity into multiple geometric planes. Each structure creates a “light trap” where colour frames transform when seen from different angles. As the viewer moves, colour dissolves and oscillates from one chromatic range to another, generating virtual colours not present in the support. It is not without reason that he is regarded as one of the 20th century’s preeminent thinkers in the realm of colour.

On exhibiting at Taipei Dangdai, Puerta Roja Founder and Director as well as the current Co-President of the Hong Kong Art Gallery Association (HKAGA), Adriana Alvarez-Nichol says, “Over the past eight years, Puerta Roja has continued its mission to expand the appreciation of Latin American and Spanish art across Asia Pacific as well as increase the awareness of the region’s rich contribution to the global art landscape. The gallery advocates carefully selected artists with a regional focus, to enable untold narratives and universal social perspectives to reach Asian audiences. In this regard, Puerta Roja and Taipei Dangdai could not be greater aligned, and it is exciting to see such a wealth of art world experience bring their dynamic influence to Taipei.”

In regard to the artist’s work, “Bringing the works of Carlos Cruz-Diez to Taipei Dangdai is a proud moment for Puerta Roja. To collaborate with such a significant artist, who, at 95, is still so vital today, really speaks for what the gallery represents: to provide an opportunity to view masterpieces previously unseen in Asia and open new routes to Op and Kinetic art for Taiwanese audiences. Carlos Cruz-Diez’ human-sized works will guarantee to be an inspiring and show-stopping experience for all.”

As part of this innovative and ground-breaking fair Taipei Dangdai, which has, as its subtitle, ‘Art and Ideas,’ Puerta Roja will also feature one piece by Spanish artist, Javier León Pérez in the fairs Salon sector where works are valued at under USD $8,000 in order to encourage new and first-time art collectors. Javier’s work, in line with the galleries mission to support artists who create a dialogue with Asian cultural practices, invokes the Neo-Confucian Chinese idea of Li (理), referring to the underlying reason and order of nature as reflected in its organic forms. Last year Javier was selected by Taiwanese collector Leslie Sun as one of her top picks during Art Taipei 2017: “There’s a juxtaposition between the artist’s obsession with detail and the freedom he gives material to take its form. But even with the obsessive details the piece is very soothing to look at”.

 

Fernando Prats Live-Painting at HKAGA’s 2018 Symposium

 Paintings of Birds Performed at Asia Society


 16.11.2018

 

FP.ARTIST PERFORMANCE-5665

Hong Kong – 20 November 2018 – Puerta Roja is proud to present live-painting performance by renowned Chilean artist, Fernando Prats, from his Paintings of Birds series at the Hong Kong Art Gallery Association’s Symposium Looking Up: Remapping Hong Kong’s Art Scene in the Era of New Connectivity and Ruptures, held on 16 November 2018 at Asia Society. In the spirit of Puerta Roja’s commitment to its Hong Kong roots and in recognition of Prats’ focus on raising awareness of human connection to the environment, the resulting work will be donated to The Nature Conservancy and auctioned by Sotheby’s at The Nature Conservancy Gala Dinner, taking place in March 2019.

By conducting a live painting in Hong Kong, Prats highlights the power and beauty of Hong Kong’s captive birds, hoping to make an imprint of the now waning Chinese tradition of song-bird keeping and Buddhist animal release. As these practices continue to decline through successful education, animal rights and environmental protection initiatives, the artist’s imprint will reference a past where birds were treasured as companions, giving way to a new and better appreciation of these animals in their natural environment. When commenting on his live action paintings, the artist states “The imprint of the birds is captured with the sensitivity of the smoke, turning the action into a receptacle of live energy. When you create a painting with the beating of the birds’ wings, what you see is the design of flight, a symbol, and an act of de-composition, where the birds’ action becomes a trace of memory, a record and a form of language.”

“We are honoured to have Puerta Roja supporting The Nature Conservancy with other leading galleries and artists taking part in The Nature Conservancy’s 2019 Gala Dinner for our conservation efforts in Asia Pacific to build a sustainable future for all. Covering more than a third of the world’s surface, the Asia Pacific region is home to some of the planet’s most unique ecosystems and endangered wildlife. However, a warming climate, a growing population, and our need for natural resources are threatening our environment as never before. We deeply appreciate that Fernando Prats is supporting our fund-raising initiative with his art that highlights the connection to the beauty and power of nature” says Moses Tsang, Global Board Member and Co-Chair of the Asia-Pacific Council of Directors of The Nature Conservancy.

Nature Paintings by Fernando Prats will be on view at Puerta Roja in Hong Kong from 14 November 2018 to 25 January 2019

Hong Kong – 11 October 2018 – Puerta Roja is proud to announce Nature Paintings, a major solo exhibition by Chilean artist Fernando Prats, debuting the artist’s Paintings of Birds series in Hong Kong for the very first time. Since representing Chile at the 54th Venice Biennale, Prats has reached international acclaim for devising a brand new and deeply personal pictorial system. Far removed from the instruments of the painter, his process results in unconventional and unpredictable images generated by nature.

Prats records natural actions on smoked surfaces, ranging from movements of animals, to powerful waves, seismographic vibrations and even imprints of geysers shooting water from the ground (an intervention possible thanks to the Guggenheim Fellowship). French theorist Paul Ardenne describes Prats’ work as pioneering “a new way of painting,” exposing not only the invisible beauty of nature but also the violent and destructive reality of the fluctuating environment.

“We are excited to bring Fernando Prats to Hong Kong this November to debut his mesmerising series, Paintings of Birds” says Adriana Alvarez-Nichol, Puerta Roja Founder and Director.“I believe Fernando represents Puerta Roja’s philosophy, by marrying a profoundly intellectual and conceptual discourse with a very poetic and robust aesthetic. I feel that these works are especially pertinent to Asia given the deeply rooted Taoist beliefs in relation to the destructive and creative balance of nature, as well as an understanding of the invisible connections in our universe. Prats’ body of work is relevant now more than ever as we continue to be faced with serious environmental issues. We believe it is important to use art as a vehicle to address such matters and we hope that the work of Fernando Prats will unravel a new perspective on the relationship between human society and the ecosystem.”

In his renowned Paintings of Birds series, the artist’s hand gives way to the free and fleeting beating of the bird’s wings making a rhythmic and majestic imprint on the smoked surface. The motion of the bird is frozen in time through a process in-between abstraction and sequence photography, capturing a linear pattern of movement that is both controlled and random. The artist builds a structure around the canvas, allowing the birds to fly freely between a net and the flat surface of the support. While the marks themselves are produced erratically in a matter of minutes, the conditions in which the imprints are created are carefully orchestrated by the artist – a constant motif demonstrated in his many series of works and arduous creative expeditions. The exhibition will also include action paintings produced with wild Andean Condors that today are an endangered species.

Although Prats has been based in Barcelona since 1990, his work is deeply connected to the telluric conditions of Chile. At the 54th Venice Biennale, he presented three projects documenting his expeditions and ventures across the country, including the Antarctic and areas affected by earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, reflecting his focus on the study of environmental conditions.

Commenting on his debut in Hong Kong, Fernando Prats says “An important aspect of my work is the direct link to the territory. There is a symbolic relationship between my native Chile and Asia, and particularly Hong Kong, which arises from the ruggedness of the mountainous landscape and the forces of the sea, as well as from the impact of natural catastrophes and their correlation with the contemplation of time. Presenting my work for the first time at Puerta Roja in Hong Kong provides a continuity to my work, which reflects my understanding of nature as an active source of energy in constant movement.”

The artist will be live-painting a new work from his Paintings of Birds series at the Hong Kong Art Gallery Association’s upcoming symposium Looking Up: Remapping Hong Kong’s Art Scene in the Era of New Connectivity and Ruptures, to be held on 16 November 2018 at Asia Society. In the spirit of Puerta Roja’s commitment to its Hong Kong roots and in recognition of Prats’ focus on raising awareness of human connection to the environment, the resulting work will be donated to The Nature Conservancy and auctioned by Sotheby’s at The Nature Conservancy Gala Dinner, taking place in March 2019.
