Yuken Teruya: WE BELONG HERE
The exhibition features an important new body of work, alongside several recent works never shown in the US before. Traversing mediums of 2D, 3D and installation, WE BELONG HERE presents a sharp critique of contemporary society through Yuken Teruya’s use of monumental landmarks as places of community and commodity.
The exhibition introduces a new body of work alongside several works previously shown. A poetic assortment of words and frames, Michelena provides a composition of infinite space to be accessed through a void, and the use of analysis and contemplation.
Piero Atchugarry gallery presents a contemporary art program and modern art survey. The gallery opened to the public in September 2013 with a Post-War Italian art exhibition. By January 2014 the gallery moved to a large stable adapted as an exhibition space in Garzón. In this space the program allowed outdoor and indoor proposal exploration, through the creation of dialogue between architectural features and curatorial practices.
On December 2018, the program expanded to North America with a second location, a 9000 square feet warehouse on 5520 NE 4th Avenue in the Design District neighborhood. The participation of the gallery in what is a boiling art community that connects Europe, Latin America and both coasts of the United States represents the commitment of the program to support and present the work of local and international artists with an institutional approach.
