Garmendia, Maneros Zabala, Salaberria. Process and Method
10.31.2013 - 02.16.2014
The deconstruction of history and simulation are strategies common to the practices of Basque artists Iñaki Garmendia (Ordizia, 1972), Xabier Salaberria (Donostia, 1969) and Erlea Maneros Zabala (Bilbao, 1977), in which the processes of recreation, appropriation, and reinterpretation are part of their respective approaches to art. This exhibition project reflects the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao’s unflagging commitment to analyzing the local art scene in order to contextualize these works.
The show is conceived as a group of three autonomous yet interdependent structures to house the work of each of these authors and facilitate a process of reciprocal feedback among the three artists. Each structure offers an overview of their careers while also presenting new works created specifically for this exhibition.
