Dot Fiftyone Gallery, Miami
September 25, 2019 – November 24, 2019
Curated by Verónica Flom
Dot Fiftyone Gallery presents Fiesta, the first solo exhibition on Miami by artist Juan José Cambre. Curated by Verónica Flom, the exhibition consists of a series of recent paintings, continuing with his interest in the exploration of color and geometry. The show will be open through November 24, 2019.
Colors propose a celebration due to their hues within a meticulous work of composition. The title of the show refers to a specific concept: both art and celebration invite you to stop and enter a time of unadulterated present. It is the creation of a parallel space that sways the senses into perceiving subtle overlaps of color, vibrations, repetitions, and differences.
Juan José Cambre (b. 1948, Argentina) has been one of the most important artists in Argentina’s art scene for the last forty years. Among his most notable solo exhibitions are the following: Mano de obra, Colección Amalia Lacroze de Fortabat, 2017; Desde el paisaje, Museo Caraffa, Córdoba, and Museo Castagnino-MACRO, Rosario, 2014; Cromática, MACBA, 2013; and Novum Ovum, Universidad Torcuato Di Tella, 2012. His work has been exhibited internationally in Milano, San José de Costa Rica, and New York. Cambre’s first major retrospective was held at the Centro Cultural Recoleta in 2008, following the presentation of a book about his artistic career to date. In 2016, he was included among the artists selected for Phaidon’s book, Vitamin P3: New Perspectives in Painting. His works can be found in numerous museums as well as in private collections. He lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
