Cuadros para una exposición, by Manu Blázquez

  • September 15th, 2020
Manu Blázquez

A sculptural project that investigates the physical and conceptual limits of the pictorial medium through the analysis of standardised formats for the canvas. The title (Spanish for Paintings for an exhibition), alluding to the Musorgski suite, advances what the installation presents: a collection of nude paintings without any intervention on the surface of the canvas.
