Luciana Brito Galeria is presenting Performing Abstraction which runs from 9th May to 30th June 2012 an international group exhibition guest curated by Rina Carvajal. The exhibition will trace performative dimensions in contemporary abstract geometric art, specific connections to the history of Modernism, and new perspectives on the contextualisation and reinvention of abstraction in recent multimedia artistic practices.

The works of the fourteen artists in the exhibition emerge from a wide range of attitudes towards abstraction, and employs a variety of media and formats, ranging from painting and drawing, to collage, video, dance, film, sound art, and installations. Abstraction as a visual strategy and aesthetic language has had a dynamic, multifaceted history, constantly repositioning and reinventing itself in various contexts, and its complexity continues to unfold today.
