Piero Atchugarry Gallery is please to present “Pablo Rasgado: DEMO(demolition) /demonstration/”, a one day exhibition conceived by the gallery specifically for the Progressive Art Brunch.
“Demo” constitutes the first part of the “When the symbols shatter” exhibition, where documents and photographs which show the making of this ambitious Project can be seen.
The exhibition is composed by a body of work that was created by the artist after undertaking a project that allowed him to work closely with a waste management company specializing in demolition materials in the city of Philadelphia.
“Demo” presents several archival material from the experience of the artist in working is such a different studio environment.
Pablo Rasgado was able to make a detailed selection from 450 tons of material that arrived on a daily basis, constructing – using the machinery to which he had access – some of his works and laying the initial bases for others.
This exhibition focuses primary on the process on making, and leads to the following solo show “Pablo Rasgado: When symbols shatter” opening on Friday October 18th at Piero Atchugarry Gallery.
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.
